NumPy Matplotlib install error: ftheader.h: No such file or directory (Fedora/RH

  • #42612

    When I am trying to build matplotlib-1.3.1, I am getting the below freetype header errors. Probably it is not finding the ftheader.h Any idea on how to solve this problem.

    NOTE: I just installed Freetype-2.5.0.1 following the instructions as mentioned in FreeType Install because manually building Matplotlib-1.3.1 from source was failing due to the required package ‘freetype’ which was not found initially.

    I tried running sudo yum install *-devel on a fresh vm which has neither numpy/scipy/matplotlib installed; but get the below error message which I received also on my previous VM image. Is it a problem specific to the VM I am using? Note: I am using Hortonworks Sandbox v1.3 over Oracle VirtualBox VM

    You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem
    You could try running: rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest
    Viewing the source tree under /usr/share/doc gives an estimate of the packages and their versions that come pre-installed in the sandbox. Note: You can clearly see freetype-2.3.11 in the list and lots of other lib packages which may be conflicting when *-dev is installed
