Matplotlib Tests Fail

Hi All,

Is there a list of known test failures and errors anywhere for packages that are a part of the Intel Python distro? I installed Intel Python and ran the matplotlib test suite and got some failures and errors which leads me to believe there may be others and it would be nice to know what they are in case any of us rely on those features for development.

If such documentation doesn't exist, could we make a sticky where we list them, perhaps by OS?

Thanks!

matplotlib backend default is wrong. For example, I just set the backend to WXpython and everythings Works.

Known issues are here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-python-known-issues

It will only tell you that there were unittest failures for matplotlib. In general, we compare the results to other distributions like Anaconda and ignore failures that happen elsewhere.

We are using the webagg backend, which requires a browser. For the gold release, we are going to follow Anaconda and use qt.

    freetype2:         2.6-intel_py27_2      [intel vc9] --> 2.6-intel_py2.7_1    [intel]
    hdf5:              1.8.16-intel_py27_2   [intel vc9] --> 1.8.16-intel_py2.7_1 [intel]
    icc_rt:            14.1.5-intel_py27_2   [intel    ] --> 14.1.5-intel_py2.7_1 [intel]

Andre,

Fixing the updating problem requires a couple steps to be completed, including updating conda to the latest (4.1.6 now) and running a small python script to patch metadata files in your installation.

I will send you an email with the details.

Todd, thanks for explaining how update without DOWngrade the IntelPython package:

conda install conda=4.1.6 python=2.7.11=intel_py27_2

 

But there is still a package that conda want downgrade, the llvm
