hi there,
I have been playing around with Django this weekend but I couldn't get
it installed on my Intel Mac running OSX (no problems on Ubuntu
Linux). I couldn't find any useful information searching google so I
was wondering if anyone can point me to a "howto". I used darwinports
to compile python 2.4 and psycopg but both failed...

thanks,
oliver

I'm running it fine.

I used the following: http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.4.3/
Universal-MacPython-2.4.3.dmg

thanks for the hint. I have Django with MacPython-2.4.3 running now.
what database adapter are you using? I tried psycopg which wouldn't
compile.

I'm using mysql.
if you paste the actual compiler error (either on list or privately)
I'll try to help.

If you come up with a solution, could you let me know? I've also run
into an inability to compile psycopg on an Intel Mac...

this is what "configure" complains about:

I know this seems to be some lib but I don't know where to find it...

I also tried MysqlDB which compiles fine but throws a runtime error:

I remember compiling psycopg was a pain, but that error isn't
intel-specific, so the comments at the bottom of this page should
help:

Yea, I have Django with psycopg running beautifully on an Intel iMac.
I'm pretty sure I used DarwinPorts to install everything, including
Python; I don't remember having any big compile errors, but if I did, I
was clearly able to fix them. So there is a way!

Jeremy is correct that you need the MX Python modules installed in
order to install psycopg; if you install them and still get the error,
it just means you have to make sure they are in the place that the
compiler is looking for them.

Regards,
Jeff

I'm fighting the same problem now trying to use MySQL with my Intel
Mac. This particular error is because
/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/lib/python2.4/site-packages/_mysql.so
was compiled for the PPC chipset.

I've tried compiling from source for the i386 architecture, but am
having no luck. :-(

What error are you getting?

I have MacBook, and although it was a challenge to get everything up
and running, I ended up using darwinports to install apache 2, mysql
5 and python 2.4.

Everything is working really well now

Fromt the error stack, it seems that the build process is still
targetting the PPC architecture, but I'm definitely a newb at mac build
processes & I have no idea how to change it. (I'm a bit surprised that
the system wasn't able to detect its own chipset, but I suppose using
the python-based build, I never did call ./configure)

Yeah, the only cases I've read about where people have gotten this
working on the Intel Mac has been through darwinports. I was really
hoping to avoid that and use independently-installed packages (such as
the pythonmac.org Universal distribution), and my currently-installed
MySql, which has been on my system for quite some time and has data I'd
like to keep - I'm not really keen on having two instances of MySQL or
having to port data from one to the other because of build/install
issues.

I think that you only need darwinports of python (and maybe apache2).
If your sql works, python mysql module should be able to connect to it
through local socket.
