[SciPy-User] SciPy installation troubles on CentOS 6.2

Hi All,


I'm trying to build SciPy from source code,
but I have some troubles.

My environment is below:
> CentOS 6.2 on VMware Fusion 4.1.2 (CentOS was installed as Software Development WS)
> Python 2.7.3 (already built from sources, installed at /usr/local/python-2.7.3)
> NumPy 1.6.1, SciPy 0.10.1, ATLAS 3.8.4, Lapack 3.4.1 (now trying to build)
I and my colleagues (other users) want to use recent Python,
so I installed Python from sources, and I can't install SciPy
by using yum command.

Now I'm facing ATLAS compiling errors.
Configuration options are "--prefix=/usr/local/atlas-3.8.4 -Fa alg -fPIC".
I tried to build it for several times, and always I got errors as below:
> res/dgemvN_6_75 : VARIATION EXCEEDS TOLERENCE, RERUN WITH HIGHER REPS.

It's very troublesome for me to build ATLAS by myself.
My purpose is just using SciPy on my Python.
Even if it's optimized not so good for my environment, it's OK.

Is there an easy or a sure way to build and install SciPy?
