I'm trying to build an application on a newly installed Ubuntu. I've used aptget to install scipy and matplotlib. numpy version: 1.0.4 scipy version: 0.6 matplotlib version: 0.91.2 What version of basemap is safe to download and build with this configuration? Doing "aptcache search basemap" yields no results, so I assume there isn't an Ubuntu package for that. And if someone tells me I need to compile a newer scipy (and it's #$%^&! dependencies) from source, I'll scream. Thanks, Mike   Michael Hearne mhearne@...

For that you need numpy 1.1 (you don't need scipy at all). Jeff  Jeffrey S.

Jeff  Well, that's the problem  I _do_ need scipy! Not for basemap, but for the rest of my application. Does your sourceforge repository have older copies of the basemap code? My complaint about scipy has to do with the fact that I spent a good week trying to get scipy's dependencies to install on two Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems: I punted both of them over to an outside contractor, who was able to compile scipy on one system, but not the other. And he specializes in that kind of stuff. Mike Jeff Whitaker wrote: > Michael Hearne wrote: >> I'm trying to build an application on a newly installed Ubuntu.

Does your sourceforge > repository have older copies of the basemap code? Mike: OK, but I don't think upgrading numpy/maplotlib requires you to update scipy. The SF site does have older copies of basemap, but beware  I'm not backporting bugfixes.
