matplotlib._path failed on windows build for Python 2.6

Hello,

I’ve tried to build matplotlib 0.98.5.2 for Python 2.6 under Windows (Win2k) using MinGW and win32_static. After a few fixes, the compilation and install appear to be ok, but I’ve got stuck at importing matplotlib._path (see transcript below).

Any suggestions on what is going wrong and how to fix it?

Did _path.cpp get compiled to a .pyd OK? (Do you have
C:\PYTHON26\Lib\site-packages\matplotlib\_path.pyd installed? -- I guess
that's where it would be... Not running Python on Windows, though, I
could be off a bit.)

Yes, that’s compiled and installed at the location you mentioned.
In fact I have no idea what is wrong with that.

Well, that’s exactly the problem: I just can’t load some DLLs!

import matplotlib._path

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “<pyshell#0>”, line 1, in
import matplotlib._path
ImportError: DLL load failed: Die angegebene Prozedur wurde nicht gefunden.

import matplotlib._delaunay
import matplotlib._image

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “<pyshell#2>”, line 1, in
import matplotlib._image
ImportError: DLL load failed: Die angegebene Prozedur wurde nicht gefunden.

I have run python -vv, it tries also …_path but does not load it, so I think it might be a linking problem.

I’ve noticed that _delaunay.cpp has a “PyMODINIT_FUNC init_delaunay(void)” while _path.cpp has just a “void init_path(void)”.

Best Regards,

Lorenzo

If you make that change, does it work?

I have also tried to start python -vv.

For _delaunay I get a correct import.

trying C:\Python26\lib\site-packages\matplotlib_delaunay.pyd

For _path and _image I get

So Python checks the right place but then concludes that the DLL is not there. I guess something goes wrong with the linking, but in fact I do not know how to write a DLL for Python and I’m stuck now.

I have checked that the compilation was ok and the rest of the installation (GTK+ etc) is ok. I can import matplotlib itself. In the packages I had only one package to patch: I think “gpobjects” had a reference to “@FFI_LIB@”. This was getting through pkg-config and stopping the compilation, so I have removed it.

… HELP! :wink:

Ouch, it looks like MinGW and Python do not fit 100% to each other.

Please check out this bug report:

http://bugs.python.org/issue3308

"Basically MinGW erroneously ships a .lib saying localtime is in
MSVCR90.DLL when it isn’t. That means there is no link failure but the
pyd will fail to load without information as to why. Fixing the .lib

means that localtime is picked up from MSVCRT.DLL (ie no version in
name) and everything appears to work well."
