Nah, that is fine. I usually refer people to
pkg-exppsy-pymvpa at lists.alioth.debian.org
which is not just for pynifti, but a place with a public archive and
usually preferable to private emails (in the long run) ;-)

The file should be correct, but the way you access the array causes
trouble. getDataArray() simply returns a pointer to the data allocated
by the nifti library. As you do not store the nifti image itself, that
data is destroyed immediately, hence segfault when accessing it.
Just replace getDataArray() (or simply .data) with asarray(), which has
a parameter 'copy' that is True by default.

I recently started compiling RPM packages with the OpenSUSE build
service. I am a total novice to RPM, but I also have them for Mandriva
2007 and 2008 -- including packages for nifticlibs. I'd be glad, if you
could try them and tell me if they work
