Fedora 20 Alpha TC5

  • Installed Fedora 20 Scientific TC5 x86-64 bit on bare metal
  • Login works
  • Tried out a few applications - works fine.

Tools/Libraries testing

C programming

Including use of math, gsl

C++ programming

Use of libraries such as Bliz++ and others

Java programming

Use of libraries

Numpy & SciPy

SymPy

IPython (including notebook)

matplotlib

Please test the following with both Python 2 and Python 3.

  • Basic plotting with the default backend using the pylab module:
# basic plotting with default backend
from pylab import plot, show

plot([1,2,3])
show()

  • Basic plotting with the default backend using the maplotlib package:
# basic plotting using the matplotlib interface
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

plt.plot([1,2,3])
plt.show()

The default backend is Qt4Agg. The next scripts will test theeTkAgg backend.

  • Basic plotting with the TkAgg backend using the pylab module:
# basic plotting with default backend
import matplotlib
matplotlib.use('TkAgg')

from pylab import plot, show

plot([1,2,3])
show()


  • Basic plotting with the TkAgg backend using the maplotlib package:
# basic plotting using the matplotlib interface
import matplotlib
matplotlib.use('tkagg')

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
plt.plot([1,2,3])
plt.show()
