[SciPy-user] problems with glplt and new scipy install

Hi,

I have just spent a long time getting a version of
scipy  installed on my powerbook G4 . I am a newbie to
python and the whole unix thing so I have found the
whole ordeal rather difficult, but interesting!

All seemed lost until I found the package by Peter
Maxwell at:

http://cbis.anu.edu.au/misc/SciPy_complete-0.3.2.mpkg.zip

I should really have looked at this list first before
trying to build from the source... 

It all seems to work great except plotting with glplt.
The program I have been testing with I know works on
other machines, but doesn't work when I use it on
mine.

I can import scipy and the scipy.test() seems to work
fine. I have reinstalled the newest version of xfree86
from fink, after deleting all previous incarnations,
but it just doesn't open the window when it is
supposed to, no error message is popped up either.

Any clues?

thanks,

Ali
