 Hi MacPorties,

 I'm wondering about a strange bug. I have installed scipy, matplotlib and
 other scientific stuff. My commands were:

 sudo port install py26-wxpython py26-numpy py26-matplotlib
 sudo port install py26-scipy py26-ipyhton

 yea, right to this point everything works fine and after a few hours its

 I started ipython and everything works fine too.

 But in standard python i did not work ... i figured out that i use the
 apple python version:

 hans: hans$ python
 Python 2.6.1 (r261:67515, Aug 2 2010, 20:10:18)
 [GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5646)] on darwin

 so i started:

 hans: hans§ python2.6
 Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, May 15 2011, 15:57:09)
 [GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5666)] on darwin

 and yea it works fine.... ok so i checked my python_select installation
 from macports:

 hans: hans§ port installed | grep python_select
 ipython_select @0.1.0 (active)
 python_select @0.3_1 (active)

 but when i type:

 hans: hans$ sudo python_select python2.6
 sudo: python_select: command not found

 So port says python_select is fine but the command does not work? any
 hints? i already tried selfupdate, upgrade outdated and clean --all
