[Numpy-discussion] OptimizationDemo [was: Numpy subversion compatibility with Scipy release? ] RESOLVED

The problem was matplotlib-0.87.2-1; it is broken wrt to the Demo. The 
lastest matplotlib .3 works. In summary, to run the demo, the following 
versions were required:

Released Packages, all built from tar balls:
matplotlib-0.87.3 , ie, the current package .2 in Fedora extras fails, 
meaning I needed to chase down the matplotlib dependencies myself (eg 
tk.h in tk-devel)
Numpy 0.9.8 (latest Fedora package is 0.9.5 which is too old)
Scipy 0.4.9

And, at least as of now, svn check outs from the numpy, scipy, and 
matplotlib subversion repos also work together for Demo1.
