That is not surprising.

That would overwrite your Numeric 24.2 installation, which is  
probably even worse than removing it. The other packages that rely on  
Numeric would expect 24.2 but get 23.8; many of them would probably  

If you want to keep Numeric 24.2, then the only way to install  
Numeric 23.8 is to install a complete second Python interpreter  
specifically for use with MMTK.

Using NumPy might be a better option because NumPy does coexist with  
any version of Numeric without problems.
