Summary : I'm planning to upload OSX wheels for numpy and scipy using the ATLAS blas / lapack library instead of the default OSX Accelerate framework.
We've run into some trouble with a segfault in recent OSX Accelerate:
and Accelerate also doesn't play well with multiprocessing.
Because there's nothing I love more than half-day compilation runs on my laptop, I've built ATLAS binaries with gcc 4.8, and linked numpy and scipy to them to make OSX wheels. These pass all tests in i386 and x86_64 mode, including numpy, scipy, matplotlib, pandas:
The build process needs some automating, but it's recorded here:
It's possible to get travis-ci to build these guys from a bare machine and then upload them somewhere, but I haven't tried to do that.
Meanwhile Sturla kindly worked up a patch to numpy to work round the Accelerate segfault . I haven't tested that, but given I'd already built the wheels, I prefer the ATLAS builds because they work with multiprocessing.
I propose uploading these wheels as the default for numpy and scipy. Does anyone have any objection or comments before I go ahead and do that?
From your README and wscript I don't see what numpy version you're using to compile scipy against. I got the impression that you used 1.8.1, but it should be numpy 1.5.1 for the 2.7 build, and 1.7.1 for 3.x.
I've tried the scipy 0.14.0 python2.7 wheel, but I get import errors (see below). Your wheels should work with all common Python installs (mine is homebrew) right?

That is strange homebrew is one of tests in the grid and the installation path looks strange.
Can you try downloading the wheel from the url and installing from the local file?
