matplotlib-0.87.7 Build Failure

   Regardless, I added 'export

    > PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/' to .bash_profile

You may also want to append /usr/local/pkgconfig/ to that path...

Glad it's working for you.

   pkgconfig is only in /usr/local/lib.

Glad it's working for you.

   Well, let's not be too hasty.

   I replaced ~/.matplotlib/matplotlibrc with the newer copy from today's
installation. Then I tried the simple script at the top of the tutorial:

[rshepard@...696... ~]$ ipython
Python 2.4.1 (#1, Apr 20 2005, 11:40:53) Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

IPython 0.7.2 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
? -> Introduction to IPython's features.
%magic -> Information about IPython's 'magic' % functions.
help -> Python's own help system.
object? -> Details about 'object'. ?object also works, ?? prints more.

In [1]: from pylab import *

In [2]: plot([1,2,3,4])
Out[2]: [<matplotlib.lines.Line2D instance at 0x4271874c>]

In [3]: show()
Segmentation fault

   So, I must be missing something that's throwing an exception. Might you
have suggestions where I should start looking?
