I'm running Mountain Lion which has Python 2.7.2 installed by default. I've installed Python 2.7.8 from .dmg at python.org and I've installed the latest version of R (v 3.1.1). I've set up a new Python environment using both versions of Python. I can install packages using pip install such as numpy, matplotlib, ipython, and a few others. When I start up Python in the terminal, I can import all the installed packages (e.g. numpy, matplotlib, etc.) and there are no problems. But when I enter either:
import rpy2.robjects as objects
and then exit() from Python, there is a segmentation fault 11 reported. This also happens with:
import pandas.rpy.common as com
The version of pandas that is installed is 0.14.1 (but the same problem occurred with previous version 0.14.0).
I've tried reinstalling R and recreating new virtual environments with new installations of all the packages but problem persists.
