install from svn on Linux not working for me

My goal is to just get the lastest svn version of matplotlib, or, if
not that, just the 0.99 version, up and working on my Linux (Intrepid
Ibex) computer. I checked it matplotlib out from svn fine, and then,
as per the webpage, did:

cd matplotlib
python setup.py install

and that resulted in a very large amount of errors. I'll post them at
the bottom of this message, since there are many lines.

I previously had 0.98.x installed, via the Ubuntu repositories, but I
have uninstalled it. My version is:
Linux ubuntu 2.6.27-7-generic #1 SMP Fri Oct 24 06:40:41 UTC 2008
x86_64 GNU/Linux

Any help is appreciated. Thank you,
Che

You seem not to have the development package of python installed.
Try "sudo apt-get install python-dev".

It looks like you are need to install libfreetype6-dev. Any time you
see missing .h files in your output, it means you need to install the
development headers for that package.

You seem not to have the development package of python installed.
Try "sudo apt-get install python-dev".

That's it. I had precisely these same problems when upgrading from
Python 2.5 to 2.6 (which in turn happened when I upgraded from Ubuntu
Intrepid to Jaunty, which BTW is *much better* than Intrepid). All
issues were instantly solved by installing the Python development
packages.

My goal is to just get the lastest svn version of matplotlib, or, if

as per the webpage, did:

cd matplotlib
python setup.py install

and that resulted in a very large amount of errors. I'll post them at
the bottom of this message, since there are many lines.

I previously had 0.98.x installed, via the Ubuntu repositories, but I
have uninstalled it. My version is:
Linux ubuntu 2.6.27-7-generic #1 SMP Fri Oct 24 06:40:41 UTC 2008

Any help is appreciated. Thank you,

You seem not to have the development package of python installed.
Try "sudo apt-get install python-dev".

It looks like you are need to install libfreetype6-dev. Any time you
see missing .h files in your output, it means you need to install the
development headers for that package.
