Problem loading python-mode on emacs 24.3 on OS X
I've compiled emacs 24.3 from source on Mac OS X 10.8, then installed python-mode 6.1.2, then Pymacs 0.25 (all from source). This resulted in the following message:
Pymacs helper did not start within 30 seconds
The Pymacs README states that:
2.1 python-mode.el difficulty
2012-05-07 lun After I recently acquired a new machine and installed a flurry
of software on it, I was saluted with:
The problem turns out to come from python-mode.el (a development copy), which
insists on providing and using its own older copy of Pymacs. The problem shows
in the Pymacs communication buffer: a failed attempt at importing Pymacs/
__init__.py. Indeed, this file does not exist anymore. Pymacs now stands as a
single file on the Python side, not as a module. This yields confusion at run
time. The problem vanishes if I comment out python-mode.el initialization, or
more simply (thanks holmboe) if py-load-pymacs-p is set to nil. I'll talk to
Andreas Röhler about this.
However, setting py-load-pymacs-p did not help. I'd like to know how to solve this problem manually or if there's a patch for it.
Can you help with this problem?
