This post is for everybody who uses python on Mac OS 10.6 together with some “scientific” goodness such as numpy, scipy, matplotlib.
I installed MacPorts today, and it’s all there.
No problem whatsoever.
I tried individual packages with easy_install before, I tried Fink before. Both options were painful. MacPorts is reasonably well up to date, and works just fine, so far, knock on wood.
