PyPlot conflict with Intel MKL?



I’ve been invariably unsuccessful in trying to make PyPlot work with any Python 3.5 version that compiles Numpy against the (multicore) Intel MKL library (I have tried it with two versions: Intelpython35 from Intel Corp, and stock Python 3.5.2 with conda pkg manager installed – this automatically installs a MKL compatible numpy version). In the end success was only met with stock Python and Numpy compiled against openblas. Is my experience commonplace?


Yes, if you are using a Julia version compiled against MKL too…it’s often a problem if you are trying to link two pieces of software that link against slight different versions of a library. See
