Problem with FunctionSpace In instant.recompile:

Asked by Antoine

I just installed Fenics on my mac, I have the following problem when I try to run the demo
python -i

Calling FFC just-in-time (JIT) compiler, this may take some time.
In instant.recompile: The module did not compile with command 'cmake -DDEBUG=TRUE . ', see '/Users/antoine/.instant/error/d90675a333a0cf9426be4e77462853b0f4a37678/compile.log'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 41, in <module>
    V = FunctionSpace(mesh, "Lagrange", 1)

Any idea what the problem could be? Many thanks
