I did:
$ easy_install --prefix=/work/python/ atlas-0.27.0.tar.gz
$ ls -l /work/python/lib/python2.6/site-packages/atlas-0.27.0-py2.6.egg
-rw-r--r-- 1 os gr 98386 2009-04-22 14:05 /work/python/lib/python2.6/site-packages/atlas-0.27.0-py2.6.egg

For some reason, this is not a directory, like numpy or matplotlib,
but I guess that is OK?

Anyway: it did not help. The error stays the same. What could be the

<mode flame="true">

Best regards.
