Note that in order for the tests to run, I had to bypass the Scipy distributed as part of ETS since it is outdated (!). I had a build of 0.7.0 lying around, with UMFPACK, and that seemed to work with sfepy.
Thanks. I think Ondrej is the last officially released version of SciPy, right? What version is in ETS?
Last long tested version that is known to work is 0.6.0 and that is the last official release as far as I know. I expect 0.7.0 to go out soon though.
