Python Question

Locate MacPorts package?

I just installed the py27-numpy package via MacPorts and python will not find the module when I use this command:

import scipy


I used the
help('modules')
command and the scipy port did not come up.

Clearly the path is not configured correctly or MacPorts is not installing in the correct place, but either way, it would solve my problem to know where this package is being installed.

Where can I find the path to MacPorts-installed package, py27-scipy?

Output of
echo $PATH
command:

/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin:/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11/bin:directory/bin

I cannot find the package in any of those locations.

Thanks for the help.

Answer

Your PATH is incorrect. It appears to be picking up another Python 2.7, likely one installed using a binary installer from python.org or elsewhere, and not the MacPorts installed one. Try removing the the /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin from PATH or just invoke the MacPorts Python directly:

/opt/local/bin/python2.7
