problems installing matplotlib 0.99 for pyhton 2.6 mac osx 10.5

Dear all,

i have python 2.6 running on my mac osx 10.5, however when installing the binary file provided, it says i need to have python 2.6 on my machine. i dont understand why this is happening as when open a new terminal and type 'python', python version 2.6.2 is the version that is run. My supervisor also had a look at this and could not figure it out. He linked python 2.6 with the python command but the install file still did not recognise python 2.6.

anybody have the same issue? or know of how to fix this issue?

is there a.tar.gz version so i can build via terminal?

Thank You
