Dear Donglai,

  As you installed in the modules in your home directory (instead of
using the system wide directories containing the python libs) you must
make python aware of the installation directory, so that it searches for
modules also there.

  You should, therefore, set the environment variable PYTHONPATH to the
installation directory. In BASH, it would be something like


  After that, it should work. You can test, if the appropriate module
can be found, by invoking python and inside python typing

  import Numeric

It should not give any error message. If this does not work, I would
suggest to ask your system administrator for assistance, as we do not
really know the specialities of your Unix system.

  Best regards,


Dr. Bálint Aradi
