if i try to emerge dev-python/matplotlib
dev-python/matplotlib-0.80-r1 +doc +gtk
over ssh it fails giving this error:
>>> Unpacking matplotlib-0.80.tar.gz to /var/tmp/portage/matplotlib-0.80-r1/work>>> Source unpacked.
X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication.
The application 'setup.py' lost its connection to the display localhost:10.0;
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
!!! ERROR: dev-python/matplotlib-0.80-r1 failed.
!!! Function distutils_src_compile, Line 35, Exitcode 1
X11 forwarding is enabled, i can easily run any X application over ssh.
i should be able to emerge matplotlib over ssh. i emerged nearly the whole system over ssh with no complaints.
had ~ # echo $DISPLAY
I suspect this is fixed by the disabling of automagic dependencies in newer versions of matplotlib. Can you try with a ~arch matplotlib and report back if it works?
(In reply to comment #1)
just tried reemerging matplotlib-0.80-r1. Now it worked! Tried with and w/o ForwardX11.
tried matplotlib-0.87.7, it worked as well.
i cannot reproduce the bug from 6 monts anymore. i consider the bug closed.
