comment Unix sort out of memory
I had the same problem when I used /run/shm as my /bigdisk for storing sorts temp files. It seems the kernel considers the ram disk in /run/shm as more important, so when sort was writing to it and memory ran out, the kernel killed sort. Using a sluggish VM hard disk instead solved it.

comment Using Atlas from scipy
This sort of thing should be handled by either numpy/scipy or libatlas-dev packages, no? I have an interesting situation where system numpy 1.9.1 works fine, but numpy 1.9.2 in a virtualenv exhibits this problem. Anyway, your solution fixed it. thx.

interestingly, in my setup, xrandr says 'Can't open display', most strange!
