New submission from cbaud:

I'm working with the entreprise distribution Centos 6, unfortunatly the package pyhton3 proposed by the package manager yum isn't working. That why I had to install python manually, for that purpose I used pip3. Once again I had a problem with pip tool to install scipy, pip couldn't find blas and lapack.
The error message proposed to specify the location blas and lapack package, but even with that it didn't work. I found the answer on stackoverflow (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11114225/installing-scipy-and-numpy-using-pip) : you have to install blas-devel and lapack-devel to install scipy with pip3. 
Nothing was scepified on the document, it could help if some comment would be added.
