problems with matplotlib on mac os x

hi all

i have to use matplotlib on mac os x. on the official site of
matplotlib, i found a link to precompiled python packages for mac os x:


so first, i installed python 2.4. that works great! if i type 'python'
in the terminal, it loads python 2.4.
after that, i loaded and installed the matplotlib package from this
site. if i type in python 'import matplotlib' no error appiers. so far,
so well...

so i went back to the tutorial page of matplotlib to crab a test... but
they use overall 'import pylab'. witch doesn't work in my python... so
i went back to the packages site again, loaded and installed numpy. now
hurray, python can do something with 'import pylab', but:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  4.                 >>import pylab
  6. RuntimeError: module compiled against version 1000009 of C-API but this
  7. version of numpy is 1000002
  9. The import of the numpy version of the _transforms module,
  10. _ns_transforms, failed.  This is is either because numpy was
  11. unavailable when matplotlib was compiled, because a dependency of
  12. _ns_transforms could not be satisfied, or because the build flag for
  13. this module was turned off in setup.py.  If it appears that
  14. _ns_transforms was not built, make sure you have a working copy of
  15. numpy and then re-install matplotlib. Otherwise, the following
  16. traceback gives more details:

  42. line 17, in ?
  43. from matplotlib._ns_transforms import *
  44. ImportError: numpy.core.multiarray failed to import
The error tells me, i have to install the packages in right order. so i
did it again:

1. numarray
2. numpy
3. matplotlib

But after that, the same error message appiers. i was never so near
that it will works :(
Can anybody help me?

Big thanks!
