I've got three different installs of Python 3.6.1 on my El Capitan Mac:
MacPorts, homebrew and the .pkg from python.org.
For reasons I haven't divined, the homebrew and MacPorts ones abort with malloc
related errors. So I went to install the distro from python.org, which happily
However, both the homebrew and python.org installs lack "dbm.gnu", upon which
my main project relies. Well, fair enough.
However, I do not know how to make it available to either. MacPorts has a
py36-gdbm package which binds the gdbm library to Python. homebrew seems not to
have such a thing and of course the python.org install is standalone.
PyPI seems not forthcoming either.
What should I be doing about this?
