A number of issues have been raised regarding the problems with installing fipy. Issues:

  • 3rd party package incompatibilities
  • lack of user knowledge with respect to python installation procedures
  • environment and path problems (lack of knowledge in linux/unix type stuff)
  • platform incompatibilities
  • installing fipy on multiple computers for classroom use


  • Live CD, including complete OS
  • make fink, apt-get, yum, rpm etc work
  • Create fipy.dmg, fipy.exe (include everything) with complete python installations that do not interfere with system pythons.
  • Investigate use of eggs
