Issues with importing psycopg2

Postby vessilli » Tue Jul 09, 2013 8:43 pm

I am running EPD python 2.7.3. I have installed psycopg2 by easy_install . But When i try to import the psycopg2, It shows the following error:
Code: Select all
Enthought Python Distribution (EPD) free version -- www.enthought.com
Version: 7.3-2 (32-bit)
(type 'upgrade' or see www.enthought.com/epd/upgrade to get the full EPD)

Python 2.7.3 |EPD_free 7.3-2 (32-bit)| (default, Apr 12 2012, 11:28:34)
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Inc. build 5493)] on darwin
Type "credits", "demo" or "enthought" for more information.

Back when I was using Snow Leopard, I determined that trying to get third party Python modules working in OS X isn't worth it. I know this isn't a solution to your problem, and is instead a workaround, but I'd recommend forgetting about OS X and installing Linux or setting up a VM, such as with VirtualBox.

If you do solve your problem, we here at this forum would greatly appreciate you posting your solution though!

Thank you "micseydel" for your suggestion. I have solved it. Problem was I was running 32 bit EPD python distribution on 64 bit OS. I have Installed Canopy 64 bit and this has been solved.
