Dear All, 
I am trying to install the package NumPy-1.0.3 on Linux x86_64 with Python 
version 2.4.2 and after using the standard installation command : 
 python setup.py install 
I received the following error message: 
error: could not create '/usr/local/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/numpy': 
Permission denied 
What is the cause of this problem? What kind of permission do I need? 
The python executable is located in /usr/bin however the numpy directory from 
where I tried to install is located in /home/../numpy-1.0.3. 
I hope someone could help me to figure out how shall I proceed. Thank you very 
much in advance.
