segmentation fault when importing pylab

I have a Debian Ubuntu 5.10 Breeze system in an amd64 machine with
python2.4. I install numpy, scipy and matplotlib without troubles, but
when I treat to import pylab I get a segmentation fault and python
breaks.
I treat lots of thinks but nothing works, some one have an idea about
these?

Thanks

How did you install those packages? What versions? What code did you run that
segfaulted? Can you isolate a small, self-contained example that segfaults so we
can examine it? If it's a numpy or scipy problem (likely), we will be happy to
answer your questions on the appropriate list to avoid cluttering the matplotlib
list.

I got scipy-0.4.4.tar.gz from the scipy site.
I got numpy-0.9.2.tar.gz from the numpy site.
I got matplotlib-0.86.2.tar.gz from the matplotlib site.
Python2.4 and all other libs from the ubuntu repository.
I did the usualy 'python setup.py build' and 'python setup.py
install' as root in the scipy-0.4.4 , numpy-0.9.2 and
matplotlib-0.86.2 directories.

When I try to import pylab I get:

Another try

Scipy whithout ploting works fine and very fast, but allways I try to
import pylab I get the segmentation fault.

Thak's a lot Robert
