numpy fails to install properly
Last modified: 2008-05-06 15:46:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Installing the numpy package from the extras repository leads to the following
error when attempting to import numpy:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/numpy/__init__.py", line 43, in ?
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/numpy/linalg/__init__.py", line 4, in ?
from linalg import *
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/numpy/linalg/linalg.py", line 25, in ?
from numpy.linalg import lapack_lite
ImportError: /usr/lib/atlas/liblapack.so.3: undefined symbol: ATL_chemv
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Why assign to python then?
The error there actually seems to suggest an undefined symbol in an atlas
library, not a problem with numpy. Re-reassigning... :)
Oops. Sorry about that. Looks like the problem has been assigned to the
correct project now.
I'm afraid I can't seem to duplicate this on F7, and I don't have a F6 system
readily available. In ipython I get no error if I enter "from numpy.linalg
import *". I currently have installed the following:
As far as I can tell there's nothing different in the way either numpy or atlas
are compiled between F6 and F7. I'm not really a python expert. Is there
something else I should be doing to trigger this? I also find it odd that it's
complaining about ATL_chemv in liblapack.so.3, since it appears to be defined in
/usr/lib/atlas/libblas.so.3.0 (also part of atlas-3.6.0).
