[Matrix-SIG] Q: scientific netcdf crashes python on import?
Thu, 2 Dec 1999 17:20:26 -0800 (PST)
Hi folks. I've spent about 8 hours on this one, so maybe I could
use some help. I'm trying to install the netCDF module from
ScientificPython on a RH 6.0 linux box. The error is:
Fatal python error: can't initialize module Scientific_netcdf
The crash obviously occurs in NetCDF.py on the line
>>>from Scientific_netcdf import *
OK, not being a guru, I tried (1) loading all the python RPMs and the
new ScientificPython RPM, and/or (2) building both (and including
NumPy source to do so) from source. Several times, in case I wasn't
cleaning up after myself. To no avail.
I tried launching python in gdb, but I'm pretty inept here.
I got python to crash with this error message:
gdb: program received signal SIGABRT Aborted
0x40066111 in __kill() from /lib/libc.so.6
