[SciPy-user] Trouble installing on OSX 10.4 Intel

Part of the problem would appear to have been me borking the install
of gfortran - reinstalling the binaries for it has fixed the scipy
issue.  The issue with pylab not working persists - should this
superpack provide a full working install of matplotlib/pylab?  I
remember a while back having to fight with backends for it, though
that doesnt appear to have a bearing on the current problem i'm
having.

Thanks for the quick reply Conor,

Cheers,

Dave
