scikit-image installation error

When i'm installing

it giving me this error. I am new in python image processing. I installed all the dependencies of this library but still it is not working.

It failed with:

ImportError: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: ATL_chemv

How can I deal with it? How fix it?

Thank you in advance.


I had the same problem.

Actually there are installation guides on the page

The Build Requirements are:

Python >= 2.6
Numpy >= 1.6
Cython >= 0.19.2
Six >=1.3

And the Runtime requirements are:

Pillow (or PIL)

I had them all installed before I installed scikit-image.

There are maybe other small accessory packages required when you installing above major ones. But there isn't a problem.

Another thing I paid attention to is to ensure the installed scikit-image versions were uninstalled before taking above ones installed 1 by 1. And you may need to exit Python IDLE.

Last, if you are a Windows user, I would recommend downloads from PyPi and

Good luck.
