Fresh macbooc, libxml problemsΒΆ

Tags: grok, plone

My new shiny macbook arrived today. Bare as a baby's bottom, I expected no problems installing lxml in a fresh buildout. Wrong. I got file is not of required architecture warnings when building it with one of the static buildout recipes.

Solution: Don't build it with the mac's own /usr/bin/python as that's a universal binary. The static recipes build a single processor architecture's version. And those don't match.

Using my macports python version solved all issues. logo
