Hello both of you, to prepare the pytables-dbg package, I 've just uploaded
numexpr. I just desactivate the test for now. On my i386 machine the test failed.
So I would like to see if thoses problem are still present in the last numexpr.
But for this we need to wait until numpy 1.6.

So one problem at a time, first add the -dbg package and wait for the new process.
Than we will be able to deal with thoses test with the latest numexpr.

yes, I agreed. now all test are failling.

I found that sort of thread[1] or [2] when looking for bus-error and mips
it is not very clear, but at least there is some ideas in it. In fact
there is plenty of thoses bus-error messages...


See you
