Can you make an RPM of python-numeric compiled against ATLAS and install it yourself?
You can. In fact, Numeric builds out of the box with
though the package name comes out to be named 'Numeric', but that should not be a problem, since the setup.cfg file reads:
[bdist_rpm] provides=python-numeric, python-numeric-devel build_script=rpm_build.sh install_script=rpm_install.sh
which means that the python-numeric dependency should be satisfied.
Yes, it is, and I sort of found that out myself. Yum is much smarter about this than RPM apparently; if I do rpm -U Numeric-23.8-i386.rpm rpm refuses to replace python-numeric-23.7 as distributed with FC4, but "yum install Numeric" when pointed at my local repo works fine. As does "rpm -i --force" of course. There is at least a verbal commitment at bugzilla.redhat.com from Redhat to migrate pygtk2 to the new array object when it comes out.
