#51521: matplotlib crash on Mac OS X.5 PPC
 Reporter:  benoit.rivet@…  |      Owner:  macports-tickets@…
     Type:  defect          |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal          |  Milestone:
Component:  ports           |    Version:  2.3.4
 Keywords:  leopard         |       Port:  py-matplotlib
 With python3.5 and py35-matplotlib @1.5.1_3+cairo as installed by
 Macports, the following minimal code :
 import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
 import numpy as np

 gives the following error :

 machdep: class is not implemented
 terminate called after throwing an instance of 'char*'
 Abort trap

 This happens on a Mac OS X.5 PPC computer, and is likely PPC related : the
 bug does not happen on an Intel Machine. The bug does also not happen with
 py34-matplotlib @1.3.1_4 (although the warning 'machdep: class is not
 implemented' is issued, the script does not crash and the expected figure
 is saved).

 Note that I reported another bug (closed: wontfix) with Matplotlib 1.4.x
 on ticket 48727[https://trac.macports.org/ticket/48727]. I guess I'm stuck
 with matplotlib 1.3 for the future :-(
