[SciPy-user] [Timeseries] Linux installation error

Hi guys and girls,

I just installed the timeseries module on linux after updating to the
latest numpy 1.3 on python2.5.

I followed the normal "python setup.py install"  routine for
installing both timeseries and numpy.  There weren't any errors during
building and installation.

Though when I import the timeseries module I get an error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/data/workspace/tests/timeseries.py", line 4, in <module>
    import scikits.timeseries as ts
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/scikits.timeseries-0.91.0-py2.5-linux-x86_64.egg/scikits/timeseries/__init__.py",
line 13, in <module>
    import const
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/scikits.timeseries-0.91.0-py2.5-linux-x86_64.egg/scikits/timeseries/const.py",
line 79, in <module>
    from cseries import freq_constants
ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/scikits.timeseries-0.91.0-py2.5-linux-x86_64.egg/scikits/timeseries/cseries.so:
undefined symbol: _time64

I'm obviously running a 64bit version of linux.  Might this be the
cause of the above error?

Another question:  Is numpy1.3 really necessary seeing as it's still
only in testing?  Most of my users use the enthought python
distribution which still has an older numpy version bundled with it.

Hope someone can help me out.

Have a great day,
