installation question

Friends,
I am using mpl in fedora10. I installed mpl (version 0.98.5.2) with yum previously. Since yum does not upgrade to latest mpl version, i have downloaded the tarball to install from the source. Now i want to install mpl in the same location as previously done by yum (info. given below).

  1. How can force the installation to the same location as done by yum.

  2. Will there be anyproblem if i overwrite old one with new installation.

import matplotlib
matplotlib.version
‘0.98.5.2’

matplotlib.file
‘/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/matplotlib/init.pyc’

Thank you,
Bala

Hi Bala,

Strange that yum did not updated, Fedora does has the latest version packaged:

http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=3607

Maybe you can try to force the installation of the latest rpm by
downloading it and installing it with yum.
