Dear All,

I am running Debian testing on my box. I had not used Python for about

a couple of weeks (during which I updated my system regularly) only to

find out that today I have a trouble if I try to import pylab. See

below what happens

In [1]: import pylab as p

I have no idea of what is going on; I do not remember doing anything

funny with my Python installation.

Any help is really appreciated now, since without pylab many of my

codes are unusable.

Many thank in advance

Lorenzo
