Package: python-numpy
Version: 1:1.0.4-5
Severity: normal


In the numpy documentation the transition from numarray to numpy for the
C extension is explained like this:
#include "numarray/libnumarray.h" -> "numpy/libnumarray.h"

but when I used distutils for my C-module the compilation hang with
can not find "numpy/libnumarray.h"
Indeed in /usr/include/python2.4/ there is no numpy directory.

( if you install numarray or Numeric, you can find thoses directory under
/usr/include/python2.x )

So I wonder why your package install an incomplet numpy directory(*), directly
into /usr/incluse
(it is a python module so headers must be installed by python-support,
 and not by hand)
Can you teach python-support how to install all headers in the right

(*) you miss at least those headers

Thanks, and have a good day


PS: I hope I was clear enought
