Running Django 0.96.2 in Leopard

The installer script for the Python based web development framework Django contains a bug on OSX 10.5 which leads to problems with the default applications “admin”, “comments” and “sitemaps”. The template and media files of these applications are copied to a wrong directory.

As a workaround for this bug, you can copy the files manually to the correct location:

sudo cp -r /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/django/contrib/* /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages/django/contrib/
