I've decided to give python a go, but have been having real problems
getting it to speak to libSBML. All problems below may just be my being
a python newb, but thought I should ask.
I installed enthought (on my Mac OSX lion), a 64 bit python package
located by default at
After installing the stable 5.3.0 binary, I followed the instructions,
changing ~/.bashprofile to include the line
and the permissions of all files located there. However, typing
> from libsbml import *
> Fatal Python error: Interpreter not initialized (version mismatch?)
Further investigation revealed that the .py and .pyc files were missing,
with __init__.py/c in their place.
So I decided to try the experimental binary instead. This time the error was
> ImportError: No module named libsbml
and I saw that the file libsbml.pyc was missing.
Finally, I decided to try compiling the (stable) source with
but I ran into the same problems (error and wrongly named files) as when
using the stable binary.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
