Can you make an RPM of python-numeric compiled against ATLAS and install it yourself? Or can you install Numeric yourself and make a dummy package to tell RPM that yes, indeed, Numeric is installed? I'm terribly unfamiliar with Fedora and RPM; I've always prefered Debian.
You can. In fact, Numeric builds out of the box with python bdist_rpm, 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. If you really need to have the rpm be named python-numeric, this can be done by either writing out the spec file and fixing it by hand via: python setup.py bdist_rpm --spec-only or by changing the 'name' flag in the setup.py by hand to read 'python-config' instead of 'Numeric'. If changing this name for rpms is a common need, we can patch up setup.py to take an optional argument. Cheers, f
