missing matplotlib agg backend for builder

Asked by Timmie on 2012-01-24

The following recipe fails:

see the log:

according to Pandas develpers, the matplotlib installation of the builder is missing the AGG backend:

Could this be installed?

This question was originally filed as bug #921243.

Robert Collins (lifeless) said : #1

The builders install what package dependencies tell them to install: the issue you are having is user data, not a code bug.

Aaron Bentley (abentley) said : #2

Robert explained the solution.
