Hello,

I am new to Mac and used python in linux before. What I am trying to
do is to install "Ipython" and "PyCogent" in Mac OS X.

For PyCogent, after entering the package path, I typed "python
setup.py install". The results are as follows:

Didn't find Pyrex - will compile from .c files
running install
running build
running build_py
running build_ext
building 'cogent.align._compare' extension
gcc -fno-strict-aliasing -Wno-long-double -no-cpp-precomp -mno-fused-
madd -fno-common -dynamic -DNDEBUG -g -Os -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -
DMACOSX -I/usr/include/ffi -DENABLE_DTRACE -arch i386 -arch ppc -
pipe -I/Users/zhaojie/Downloads/PyCogent-1.0.1/include -I/System/
Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/include/python2.5 -
c cogent/align/_compare.c -o build/temp.macosx-10.5-i386-2.5/cogent/
align/_compare.o -w
unable to execute gcc: No such file or directory
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

After google, I installed Xcode,but it did not help. Also, the Xcode
folder is not within "applications" folder, but a separate one
parallel with "applications". Dragging Xcode folder into the
applications folder did not make a difference, either.

Hope someone familiar with Mac can help me out.

Thank you,

Jie
