[SciPy-User] running script error (eigen symmetric)

Dear Scipy users,

I am a new python and scipy user and I am looking for some help to troubleshoot an error I have been getting when trying to run a script in python.  The script I am trying to run is called pyCluster ROI and it needs python, pynifti, scipy, and numpy to run. I have installed all these programs successfully using macports on Mac OS 10.8.

I unarchived the scripts and ran the test script getting this error:

$ python pyClusterROI_test.py

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "pyClusterROI_test.py", line 48, in <module>

    from make_local_connectivity_scorr import *

  File "/Users/matthewnye/Downloads/pyClusterROI/make_local_connectivity_scorr.py", line 40, in <module>

    from scipy.sparse.linalg.eigen.arpack import eigen_symmetric

ImportError: cannot import name eigen_symmetric

I have been trying to hunt down what this error may be and it seems that older versions of scipy might have used  ‘scipy.sparse.linalg.eigen.arpack.eigen symmetric()’  where as new versions it has been renamed as "scipy.sparse.linalg.eigen.arpack.eigs()."

Does anyone know what might be causing this error or if it is a version problem is there any way to get an older version of scipy through macports? Also I have considered installing all these modules through a manual install but since i am a novice user I did not want to attempt that if there was a potentially simpler solution.

Any help would be much appreciated!
