Logged out. Made a new administrator user. Logged in as that user. No
external devices attached to my machine.
The installation finishes with "There were errors installing the
software. Please try installing
I should say that Python appears to be working:
darnold $ python
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54869, Apr 18 2007, 22:08:04)
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5367)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
But the installation finishes with that error message.
