When i'm installing
ImportError: /usr/lib/liblapack.so.3gf: undefined symbol: ATL_chemv
I had the same problem.
Actually there are installation guides on the page http://scikit-image.org/docs/dev/install.html.
The Build Requirements are:
Python >= 2.6 Numpy >= 1.6 Cython >= 0.19.2 Six >=1.3
And the Runtime requirements are:
SciPy Matplotlib NetworkX Pillow (or PIL)
I had them all installed before I installed scikit-image.
There are maybe other small accessory packages required when you installing above major ones. But there isn't a problem.
Another thing I paid attention to is to ensure the installed scikit-image versions were uninstalled before taking above ones installed 1 by 1. And you may need to exit Python IDLE.
Last, if you are a Windows user, I would recommend downloads from PyPi and http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/.
