I've installed some/most of what I believe I need. I tried this line
(not knowing what to expect) and got an error.
This is on a Mac using the developer install (not the VM).

python web2py.py -S eden -M
Traceback (most recent call last):

Hi Charlie,

This is a common issue with the 1st run of web2py.
The solution is simply to run the program again & then the issue is resolved.
I agree that it's a highly unfriendly message & should really be
caught - a contribution upstream to web2py to get that fixed would be
appreciated!

Best Wishes,
Fran.
