I found the download adresses of scipy and numpy from official website
'www.scipy.org'. After downloading 2 latest released dmg files, i
directly installed them with double-click the dmg files.

Then, i opened Python interpreter in Terminal, and tested whether
scipy & numpy work. The result is disappointed!

when i inputed ' import scipy' & 'import numpy', the output is :

Traceback (most recent call last):

Is there anybody can tell me where the error exists?

For future reference, when on OS X, it's very helpful to include how
you installed your Python, and whether it's 32-bit or 64-bit.

I found the download adresses of scipy and numpy from official website
'www.scipy.org'. After downloading 2 latest released dmg files, i
directly installed them with double-click the dmg files.

I believe you've installed 32-bit libraries for a 64-bit Python (or
possibly vice-versa). It appears that NumPy & SciPy official releases
are 32-bit-only. So, you can either use the alternate, unofficial
64-bit releases of those packages, or install a 32-bit Python (via
Fink, MacPorts, a Python.org installer, etc.). A third option is to
install the Enthought Python Distribution
(http://www.enthought.com/products/epd.php ) or similar, which bundles
Python together with SciPy, NumPy, and other libraries in a single
install.

Cheers,
Chris
