Hi Edward -

This may sound very simple, but did the "%" get included in the command to do the download by mistake? You'll want to remove that from the command string run again (was used to note the terminal prompt, is not a part of the command). So, just this:


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

I just tested the galaxy-dist repository and there are no issues at bitbucket (right now). So, otherwise the MAC install should be fine.

Maybe this helps?

Both responses worked for checking python version, but trying to
download gave an error:

Install Galaxy on Mac OS10.7
1. Open Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app
2. Check Python version by pasting in "python -V", no quotes, and hit return
*response = Python 2.7.1*
3. Get Galaxy by pasting in "% hg clone
https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-dist/";, no quotes, and hit return
*response = -bash: fg: %: no such job*

Hi Edward

I am moving your e-mail to 'galaxy-dev' since it's about a local Galaxy
instance.

I don't think there are any differences between installing Galaxy on
Linux and Mac OS X. Hence you can follow the step-by-step instructions
on the wiki (well, there are actually only two steps anyway...):

WRT checking the python version:

just type 'python -V' on the command line, eg on my old MacBook:

bash-3.2$ python -V
Python 2.5.1
bash-3.2$


Hope this helps
Regards, Hans

Hello,
Could someone provide instructions for installing galaxy on a Mac OS
10.7? The
instructions provided by galaxy start off by asking me to check my python
version, but I don't know how to do that. I figure someone has
step-by-step
instructions or a screen cast?
Thank you,
Edward
