0.87.5 Installation alongside Numpy/SciPy [OS X]

Hi everyone,

I'm confused as to what version of NumPy this most recent release of
matplotlib wants to be used with - I get the following message:

from pylab import *

RuntimeError: module compiled against version 1000002 of C-API but
this version of numpy is 1000000
...etc

This suggests to me that my current version of numpy is out of date.
The most recent version of numpy on their sourceforge site is
apparently 0.9.8, and a beta version - 1.0b5

Cheers,

Dave

mpl 0.87.5 is compiled against numpy 1.0b5. It should remain
compatible with future release of 1.0.

Okay, I appear to have my self in dependency hell now :s
I'm trying to get a working installation of numpy,scipy and mpl
together. I'm going about this using the scipy superpack download,
which contains all three and a few supporting things. Trouble is, the
build of mpl contained in the superpack is missing it's __init__.py
file - so python doesnt recognise it as a module to import.

It was suggested by the SciPy crowd that I should pinch the
__init__.py from a 'working' package of mpl and using that to make the
module work. Sounds a bit of a bodged way of doing this, and indeed,
using the __init__.py from the most recent mpl release produces the
following:

from pylab import *

Traceback (most recent call last):

libfreetype issues.

Anyone got a solution to this problem that will get me a working
install of all 3 modules?

Cheers,

Dave
