I want to run python.NET  on MAC OSX (Mountain Lion) and since I'm new to MAC/UNIX and I'm not a programmer I naturally turned to the web:

*1st : I tried iron python using eclipse with MONO (configuring eclipse iron python interpreter to the mono framework "/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/icy" file) - eclipse doesn't allow this and I got the following error:

"No output was in the standard output when trying to create the interpreter info."

*2nd : I tried python.NET on XAMARIN :

I found this link: http://curtis.schlak.com/2012/01/17/howto-run-pythonnet-on-osx.html

I followed all the instructions but it's not clear to me how can I write python in XAMARIN, import clr  etc. (I set up the solution as explained in the link above but I'm not sure about the next step).

* 3rd try :
I found a post on this mailing list :

I tried using the original makefile and setup.py (both makefiles) with "sudo setup.py install" and received the following error:
"dyld: DYLD_ environment variables being ignored because main executable (/usr/bin/sudo) is setuid or setgid
/bin/sh: pkg-config: command not found
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 46, in <module>
    argsDict = pkgconfig('glib-2.0', 'mono-2')
  File "setup.py", line 32, in pkgconfig
    raise RuntimeError("An error has occured")
RuntimeError: An error has occured

I also tried editing the makefiles and setup.py according to the diff file supplied in the thread but still no success.

Is there a makefile/ setup.py file that will work on MAC ? maybe some sort of step by step monkey guide... :-)

I appreciate the help,
