Ned Deily <nad at acm.org> added the comment:
If a version of Python 3.2 has been previously installed, a subsequent re-install of Python 3.2 may fail attempting to install the Documentation package. On Mac OS X 10.6, the message reported by the installer is:
"The following installation step failed: run postflight script for Python Documentation. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance."
Avoid the problem by dragging the folder /Library/Frameworks/Python/Versions/3.2/share to the Trash (you may be asked to enter an administrator password to do so) or, equivalently, run the following from a command line shell:
sudo rm -rf /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.2/share
Then re-run the installer to ensure that all installation steps have been completed.
stage: -> needs patch
