plot window does not open

Hi all,
    it appears that i needed to recompile MatPlotLib after installing
the backend (WxPython, in my case).
    the basic plots appear now, it is time to solve new errors.

  I am running Python 2.5.2 on Fedora Core 7. recently removed
previous versions of Scipy and Numpy (installed previously using YUM),
and compiled and installed their latest versions using the source
code. i also installed MatPlotLib from source. their versions are
given below:

Python 2.5.2
Numpy 1.1.0
Scipy 0.6.0
MatPlotLib 0.98.3

  I try simple plot commands as the ones below. however, no plot
window appears anywhere. i think i am doing something really silly
here, like not linking to backend (see the error message below). i
have looked at matplotlibrc file in my home area

  plz suggest some remedy.
