You are trying to import a package you just un-installed?  Is this line 
showing up from some other package you're trying to run and you're 
debugging by trying it at the Python prompt?  A Numpy import looks like 

    from Numeric import *

AFAICS, there's nothing named numarray anywhere in a Numpy 23.0 
installation, so if you get that working, then you've not got NumArray 
purged yet.

However, since your original problem was an import error, "the same 
error" probably (posting exception tracebacks is useful) indicates that 
you're getting an ImportError saying that numarray doesn't exist.  
That's what you *want* (since you don't want NumArray hanging around).

This is only for creating stand-alone executables, it has nothing to do 
with just running PyOpenGL.  It's also related to NumArray, *not* Numpy, 
so again, not relevant.

Hopefully not any more.
