I recently tried to build/install matplotlib 0.87.7 on an Intel iMac
running Mac OS X 10.4.8 via Fink. Although the installation succeeded,
any attempts to import pylab or other modules from matplotlib result
in a segfault. Tracing python2.4 while attempting to run a script that
imports pylab indicates that the crash occurs shortly after it
attempts to open and read data from some font file.
Here are the versions I am using:
I am also using Apple's X11 1.1.2 / Xfree86 4.4.0. Has anyone had any
success using the above Fink packages?
