Yep, that's right. Perhaps someone else can verify that matplotlib
with numerux : numarray works on python2.4 / win32 just to verify that
I didn't screw up the 2.4 installer.

Also verify that your http://matplotlib.sf.net/.matplotlibrc setting
for numerix is numarray. While testing, you may want to run with
--verbose-helpful which may provide some additional diagnoistic
information. Note you can also select numeric vs numarray from the
DOS shell, which can be helpful while debugging this problem
c:> python myscript.py --verbose-helpful --Numeric
c:> python myscript.py --verbose-helpful --numarray
Hope this helps,
