Meanwhile i would like to know. Suppose if i install the latest mpl that i
just downloaded, will it overwrite the mpl version 0.98.1 previously
installed with yum ? If not, when i give ipython -pylab, which version will
be loaded, I mean which version would be my default.

That will depend on how Python is configured in Fedora (I have no idea)
and what command-line options you use when you install matplotlib. See

http://docs.python.org/install/

for the details.

The yum version will be installed into something like /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ and the version you install yourself will be put (by default) into /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ (you can control this with the --prefix option to “python setup.py install”). If the /use/local version is in your PYTHONPATH before the /usr/lib version, you will get the newer version. You can check this by doing

import matplotlib
print matplotlib.version
print matplotlib.file
