ParaView internal Python libraries are still broken

I tested new nightly build MacOS ParaView-5.7.0-1035-g5b9485e246.app and it’s still broken like to MacOS ParaView-5.7.0.app:

from scipy import linalg
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<console>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/Applications/ParaView-5.7.0-1035-g5b9485e246.app/Contents/Python/scipy/linalg/__init__.py", line 190, in <module>

    from .blas import get_blas_funcs
  File "/Applications/ParaView-5.7.0-1035-g5b9485e246.app/Contents/Python/scipy/linalg/blas.py", line 214, in <module>
    from scipy.linalg import _fblas
ImportError: dlopen(/Applications/ParaView-5.7.0-1035-g5b9485e246.app/Contents/Python/scipy/linalg/_fblas.so, 2): Symbol not found: _main
  Referenced from: /Applications/ParaView-5.7.0-1035-g5b9485e246.app/Contents/Python/scipy/linalg/_fblas.so

That’s very bad because many internal libraries are broken and we can’t load them and any related libraries from PYTHONPATH. And that’s [almost] impossible to replace all of them by not related libraries from PYTHONPATH.

One more thing: this binary lib can be loaded without issues:
from numpy import linalg

Also, I can remove “scipy” internal package manually and load it from external PYTHONPATH.

Very strange, I can run from scipy import linalg without any error.

Please share what otool -L /Applications/ParaView-5.7.0-1035-g5b9485e246.app/Contents/MacOS/paraview reports.

As I mentioned over in this thread, the fact that it is looking for _main is very odd. Does this still occur today?
