O pylab why do you refuse to import?

Hi- I’m writing again.

I managed to switch my python version to 2.5, and reloaded numpy and matplotlib. Unfortunately, pylab still will not load:

import pylab
Traceback (most recent call last):

Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/matplotlib/ft2font.so

What is going on? Is ft2font.so broken?

I’m using python 2.5.2 on a macbook, intel microprocessor, mac os 10.4.11

how did you install matplotlib?

  Unfortunately, pylab still will not load:

does that file exist?

If so, try running:

$ file ft2font.so

and see what it says -- it may be a PPC- only binary.

I installed matplotlib from the dmg file. I clicked on the icon to install it.
