installation problem on Mac

In article <BANLkTi=bj2vGaYcqwCLK+kSz_QEQm-4-7A@...288...>,

I am trying to install matplotlib on my Mac OS X 10.6.6. I currently have
Python 2.7.2 installed. I tried installing
The installation appears to run fine, but when I try to import pylab * I am
getting the following error message:

>>> from numpy import *
>>> import pylab
2): no suitable image found. Did find:

no matching architecture in universal wrapper

I am new to Python and any help would be greatly appreciated.



Which Python 2.7.2 are you using? The matplotlib installer is only
compatible with the 32-bit version from and I suspect you are
using the 64-bit version or some other distribution entirely.

If you are definitely using the 32-bit version then could you
please execute the "file" command on

When I do that for mine I get:
d-172-28-191-121:matplotlib rowen$ file Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures (for architecture ppc): Mach-O bundle ppc (for architecture i386): Mach-O bundle i386
