I've been trying to get the Numeric-19.0.0 working on Python 2.1b2 under 
OS X. I've successfully
install python and have success with most of the modules, but I have 
problems with Numeric. I
can't get it to even load. The following is what I get when I import 

Python 2.1b2 (#1, 04/09/01, 22:37:35)
[GCC Apple DevKit-based CPP 6.0alpha] on darwin1
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> import Numeric
dyld: python multiple definitions of symbol _PyArray_API
/usr/local/lib/python2.1/site-packages/Numeric/multiarray.so definition 
of _PyArray_API
/usr/local/lib/python2.1/site-packages/Numeric/umath.so definition of 

At this point, I get returned to the command line (python exits). It 
appears that the dynamic linker mechanism under OS X doesn't like 
symbols with the same name. Anyone have a way around
this ?
