TkAgg not rendering


I have seen related issues recently on the mailing list. I have built the latest matplotlib from CVS in SuSE Linux 8.0 with gcc 3.3. The GTK backend works fine, but GTKAgg and TkAgg pop up a window but don't render the plot. Has anyone had the same problem?

Here is the output of ldd -r => /usr/local/lib/ (0x40003000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x400d2000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40173000) => /lib/ (0x401a5000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x401b4000) => /lib/ (0x4026f000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x40292000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x402f6000) => /lib/ (0x402ff000) => /lib/ (0x40316000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x4043e000) => /lib/ (0x404fe000)
  /lib/ => /lib/ (0x80000000)
undefined symbol: _Py_NoneStruct (./
undefined symbol: Py_BuildValue (./
undefined symbol: Py_InitModule4 (./
undefined symbol: PyArg_ParseTuple (./

It looks like these 'undefined symbols' are not the cause of the problem; they are missing from every .so in my site-packages. They must be linked in at run time from somewhere else.

I see that in a previous post, you recommend to link in -lX11 -lXaw,
what exactly do you mean by that? To which command should those be appended?

Thanks in advance !
