I was following the installation instructions and when I got to the step where I needed to execute the command: ./manage.py loaddata demo_events Running it threw the following exception: ImportError: Problem installing fixture '/Users/bsilverberg/gitRepos/remo/remo/events/fixtures/demo_events.json': dlopen(/Users/bsilverberg/.virtualenvs/remo/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Crypto/Cipher/_AES.so, 2): Symbol not found: _rpl_malloc Referenced from: /Users/bsilverberg/.virtualenvs/remo/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Crypto/Cipher/_AES.so Expected in: flat namespace in /Users/bsilverberg/.virtualenvs/remo/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Crypto/Cipher/_AES.so Note that the other loaddata calls worked (for demo_users and demo_functional_areas). I am on OS X 10.10 and Python 2.7.6
It turns out I see this same error when trying to run the site as well, so it's not specifically related to loaddata demo_events. I will investigate further.
I seem to have fixed it, but I cannot claim to have understood what I did. :P Based on this post: https://bugs.launchpad.net/pycrypto/+bug/1096207 I reinstalled the requirements specifying the environment variable `ac_cv_func_malloc_0_nonnull`, like so: ac_cv_func_malloc_0_nonnull=yes pip install -r requirements/dev.txt and that seems to have resolved the issue. I'm not sure if this is worth documenting somewhere in case someone else comes across the problem.
