Random Hint: Install numpy-f2py when installing Scipy

Scipy installation instructions for building from source ( are simple enough.  Scipy requires numpy, which should be available via yum installation (saving you some trouble--just use "yum install numpy").  However, when running Scipy's "python install", I faced the error

ImportError: No module named f2py

along with some other barfing.  The solution was to simply also install numpy-f2py via yum.
