Hi to everybody,

I'm trying to run the installation (in-built and not) of SfePy in Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks). 

By now, I tried to do it using a python 2.7 distribution that came along with the anaconda package and installing all prerequisites using pip or conda. But when launching 'python setup.py install' or 'python setup.py build', the installer crashes.

My log window:

MacBook-Pro-de-M:sfepy-master slowpoke$ sudo python setup.py install

Traceback (most recent call last):

ValueError: unknown locale: UTF-8

Any idea about what could be happening?

Thank you very much in advanced.
