Description

Sorry for bothering you with these problems.

I tried installing maus now and I got a fatal error. Here is the end of the file:

INFO: ok
INFO: Checking import of package bitarray

INFO: Checking import of package matplotlib
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>

Could you send me the file install.log in your build directory?

Offending lines are:

============================================================================
BUILDING MATPLOTLIB
            matplotlib: 1.2.0
                python: 2.7.2 (default, Mar 28 2013, 16:35:40)  [GCC 4.1.2
                        20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-54)]
              platform: linux2

REQUIRED DEPENDENCIES
                 numpy: 1.5.0
             freetype2: 9.10.3

OPTIONAL BACKEND DEPENDENCIES
                libpng: 1.2.10

Two things that might be going wrong - there is a complaint about a failed X11 connection and a notification of dependencies (but with no error message). So I would check the dependencies. numpy comes prepacked with MAUS and appears to be installed correctly (there is a line like

INFO: Checking import of package numpy
INFO: ok

somewhere in the log file). freetype2 I think on Scientific Linux comes in a package called "freetype" and you should check you have that installed.

If that is okay, then try forwarding X11 connections in the terminal where you are doing the install.

For comparison, there is a set of sample build logs here:

Thanks a lot, Chris.

The X11 connection was the problem. Now it finished without any error.

Well, I never knew that was an issue - you live and learn. Installation instructions updated accordingly.

Cheers,
Chris
