hi.  after a nice tutorial here at FOSS4G2016, i've been installing
grass 7.0.4 on my Mac (as an x11, "normal" unix app, rather than as

there were various hurdles (many involving the fact that macosx tends to
suppress passing on the environment variable DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH,
presumably for security reasons).

my last (known) problem gave me symptoms similar to

this seems to come from wx-2.8-gtk2-unicode/wx/lib/plot.py, where there
is the following code:
# Needs Numeric or numarray or NumPy
    import numpy.oldnumeric as _Numeric
        import numarray as _Numeric  #if numarray is used it is renamed Numeric
            import Numeric as _Numeric
            msg= """
            This module requires the Numeric/numarray or NumPy module,
            which could not be imported.  It probably is not installed
            (it's not part of the standard Python distribution). See the
            Numeric Python site (http://numpy.scipy.org) for information on
            downloading source or binaries."""
            raise ImportError, "Numeric,numarray or NumPy not found. \n" + msg

i guess new versions of numpy don't contain oldnumeric.  i solved this
by installing the python Numeric package.

sorry if this isn't the correct place to report bugs/hopeful-solutions.

cheers, Greg Minshall
