This means your Python 2.6 installation is still broken,
so it is not related to Numpy.

Start trying to install Numpy only after you get

>>> import subprocess

to work properly.

Googling reveals that also others have had problems with missing select
module when compiling Python.

Apparently the machine you are using is not a standard Redhat installation,
but something on it is strange.
