Since upgrading to SUSE 11.3 matplotlib simply craches with segfault

Hi,

Since upgrading to SUSE 11.3 matplotlib simply craches
(segfault on dlopen("/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/_path.so", 2);

python -V

Python 2.6.5

uname -a

Linux mcp20 2.6.34.7-0.5-default #1 SMP 2010-10-25 08:40:12 +0200 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I did a 1-Click Installation from http://software.opensuse.org.
http://software.opensuse.org/search/download?base=openSUSE%3A11.3&file=devel%3A%2Flanguages%3A%2Fpython%2FopenSUSE_11.3%2Fi586%2Fpython-matplotlib-1.0.0-2.9.i586.rpm&query=python-matplotlib
So I have python-matplotlib-1.0.0-2.9.i586.rpm

When I do:
python -v -c "import matplotlib.figure"
...
import matplotlib.docstring # precompiled from /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/docstring.pyc
# /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/transforms.pyc matches /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/transforms.py
import matplotlib.transforms # precompiled from /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/transforms.pyc
dlopen("/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/_path.so", 2);
Speicherzugriffsfehler
(means "Segfault")

The same is when I do:
python -v -c "from pylab import *"
mport matplotlib.docstring # precompiled from /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/docstring.pyc
# /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/transforms.pyc matches /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/transforms.py
import matplotlib.transforms # precompiled from /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/transforms.pyc
dlopen("/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/matplotlib/_path.so", 2);
Speicherzugriffsfehler

I googled around.
Some Chaco users seems to have similar problems.
But for now I have no idea what to do next.

Please, somebody be so kind and give me some hint.

Have a nice day.

Since their package is crashing, I would report this bug against OpenSUSE's python-matplotlib package.

If that doesn't get you any response, it would be helpful to get a better idea of where it is failing. Can you provide a gdb backtrace?

Since you are using OpenSuse, (and If you are brave enough) you can
add my REPO and use the latest version of matplolib:

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/ocefpaf/openSUSE_11.3/

I compile the svn version every week there.

Filipe.

Now I found a solution:

From the Education Repository of openSuse:
"URL: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Education/openSUSE_11.3/"

Install the packages:
   - python-numpy
   - python-matplotlib

These two seems to work together.

Have a nice day
