Thanks for the URL. It would not have occurred to me to read
"alt-install-windows" since I don't do Windows, and haven't since 1999.
I did not change the distutils installation location.
How do I determine what is loaded when "import numpy" is issued?
That is, how does one distinguish between the RPM and the NumPy built
using the Intel compiler and MKL? I suppose I can build NumPy under my
user directory and reinstall the RPM, and then run some benchmarks.
This is exceedingly frustrating; it's not new -- numpy/scipy are very
important to me, but they have been very difficult to install under SUSE
I'm very grateful for the selfless contributions of those who have
created numpy/scipy, but if I -- a highest honors grad -- have great
difficulty making it work, what about others?
