  • fix permissions

    $ sudo chown -R `whoami` /usr/local
    
  • to install python specific stuff, use pip:

    brew install pip
    echo '[install]
    install-scripts=/usr/local/Cellar/PyPi/2.6/bin
    install-data=/usr/local/Cellar/PyPi/2.6/share' > ~/.pydistutils.cfg
    pip install ipython
    
  • this is with the exception of numpy + scipy, the latter needing

    cd tmp
    svn co http://svn.scipy.org/svn/numpy/trunk numpy
    pip install numpy
    
    brew install suite-sparse
    svn co http://svn.scipy.org/svn/scipy/trunk scipy
    pip install scipy
