This is odd. After successfully installing the egg (last post) and then removing
it by doing
sudo rm -rf
I now get
sudo installer -pkg matplotlib-0.98.5.1-py2.5-macosx10.5.mpkg -target /
installer: Package name is matplotlib 0.98.5.1-r0
installer: Upgrading at base path /
installer: The upgrade was successful.
So there are some files I haven't gotten rid of, what should I be looking to remove?
