As a test of the default settings, I created a newuser, downloaded the
above file into newuser/, and:
tar -xjvf garnumpy-0.2.1.tbz2
It completed the build & lengthy test process w/o errors. I was very

build. What a change from the painful manual process! David, thank you
very much for this contribution to the community. It promises to be a
very useful tool, especially for new users.
One small change needs to be made if you run Python2.5.
In startgarnumpy.sh, the line
needs to be changed to
The system is a Core 2 Duo running 32-bit openSUSE 10.2 &
Python2.5. Next, I plan to experiment changing the defaults to match the
