Hi all

I'm new to this list (but an active SciPy user).
I just installed the latest matplotlib 0.80 on WinXP, Python 2.3.4, Numeric 23.8. A while ago I used matplotlib 0.61 together with Numeric 23.1 which worked pretty well. But now I get the following error:

In [1]: from pylab import *


ImportError Traceback (most recent call last)

C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\user\Eigene Dateien\<console>

      -3 from matplotlib.pylab import *

     188 """
--> 190 import gzip
     191 import cm
     192 import _pylab_helpers

       8 import struct, sys, time
----> 9 import zlib
      10 import __builtin__

ImportError: dynamic module does not define init function (initzlib)

I've never seen this error message before. Any hints are appreciated. Many thanks.
