I recently downloaded galaxy and had some problems installing it on my machine 
(running Mac OSX 10.6.7 ).  I've found a workaround to my problem, but I 
thought I should post here in case it is useful.  

I obtained the standard galaxy distribution using

hg clone https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-dist/

I then tried running sh run.sh but got;

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/iracooke/Sources/galaxy-dist/lib/galaxy/web/buildapp.py", line 
81, in app_factory
    from galaxy.app import UniverseApplication
  File "/Users/iracooke/Sources/galaxy-dist/lib/galaxy/app.py", line 11, in 
    from galaxy.tools.imp_exp import load_history_imp_exp_tools
line 6, in <module>
    from galaxy.web.base.controller import UsesHistory
  File "/Users/iracooke/Sources/galaxy-dist/lib/galaxy/web/base/controller.py", 
line 12, in <module>
    from galaxy.visualization.tracks.data_providers import get_data_provider
 line 16, in <module>
    from bx.arrays.array_tree import FileArrayTreeDict
  File "numpy.pxd", line 119, in init bx.arrays.array_tree 
ValueError: numpy.dtype does not appear to be the correct type object

I googled this error and found a post suggesting that I try virtualenv ... I 
tried that but it made no difference.  

Python --version returns 

After some digging I tried rescrambling the numpy and then the bx_python egg.  
After rescrambling the latter sh run.sh worked. 

Anyway I'm not sure if other mac users have had similar problems.  In my case 
I'm pretty sure I had installed things with easy_install in the past ...but I 
assume using virtualenv would have solved that problem.
