Would anyone be willing to help me interpret an error while trying to
build and install Numpy? I've searched around, and haven't seen this
I've been running into this wall for about half the day now. I've
tried reinstalling Python, using numpy 1.2.0 and 1.2.1.
I have Python 2.6.1, running on OS X 10.4.11, with a G4 PPC processor.
Here's the print out:
Ganymede:~/Desktop/numpy-1.2.1 username$ python setup.py build
Running from numpy source directory.

SystemError: error return without exception set
I've had numpy/scipy installed in the past, but recently had to wipe
everything and start from scratch. Everything should be pretty clean
right now. Am I missing something obvious?
