Hi Kenneth,

thanks for your input. I have tried with matplotlib 1.5.2 and 1.5.3, but unfortunately, the error remains the same.

The numpy version in my Python 3.5.1 is the original one from the respective easyconfig, namely 1.10.4. The matplotlib installer even says so under

                 numpy: yes [version 1.10.4]

however, during the installation process, it somehow seems to have fetched and referenced a newer version of numpy (1.11.2) in a temp directory as can be seen in the log:


So I guess this is more a problem of the installer, always trying to use the latest numpy version or so?

Kind regards,

Hi all,

I've installed Python-3.5.1-intel-2016a.eb (with --try-toolchain="intel,2016.03-GCC-5.3" but that shouldn't be relevant to the problem) and am now trying to install matplotlib-1.5.1-intel-2016a-Python-3.5.1.eb, but it always fails on installing the extension matplotlib.

== 2016-10-13 10:31:49,338 build_log.py:163 ERROR cmd " /sw/taurus/eb/Python/3.5.1-intel-2016.03-GCC-5.3/bin/python setup.py build " exited with exitcode 1 and output: ...

From the log I can see that an import exception is raised:

ImportError: No module named 'numpy._build_utils'

I have attached the full log.

Is this normal? Why does it try to access numpy._build_utils anways? Isn't this just some internal module of the numpy installer and shouldn't even be used by other modules? Any advice on how to get rid of this problem would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

This looks relevant: https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues/6551 .

It seems to suggest that the numpy version you have included in your Python 3.5.1 installation is too new for matplotlib 1.5.1?

Maybe try with matplotlib 1.5.2, if that's an option?
