Old title: Categories broken in current mac build

This is a general problem not mac only. I just installed on a clean windows 8.1 machine and found exact same errors in the logfile.

NOTE: THIS PREVENTS FITTING FROM LOADING. In other words the applications starts and does not crash on those errors but the fitting perspective is disabled so that when you go to choose fitting (rather than say P(r) ) no such thing is possible. This may be related to the problem Jeff is having on the datainfo and the reader.

The default_category file is in the sasview directory as it should be. Since nothing has been touched in the repository regarding categories, this may be left over from the code reorg project. With luck it is just a setup.py fix.

If I check out the source and do:

python setup.py install —user

and then run the script that is installed (~/Library/Python?/2.7/bin/sasview in the case of my Mac) then all is well. Running the packaged app build fails to load the fitting perspective.

Is this then a bundling issue?

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

For the Mac build, the problem was that py2app is zipping site-packages before putting it in the app directory.
Added the following to the build script:

unzip -q sasview.app/Contents/Resources/lib/python2.6/site-packages.zip -d sasview.app/Contents/Resources/lib/python2.6

Also made sure that the --always-unzip option is used when calling easy_install on the sasview package.

The windows app is still broken. After discussion at today's meeting am re-opening and tentatively assigning to Peter Parker.

With Mathieu's help I was able to make the following change:

http://sourceforge.net/p/sasview/code/6849/

It seems to have done the trick.
