Through another post, I was told to download Fink and install Python through it to get my scripts working correctly (kept getting an “import os” error).
I downloaded Fink 0.6.3 (for OSX 10.2) but I haven’t installed it yet. I’m a little nervous to install it because from what I’ve seen, it looks like it requires some Terminal knowledge, and I have no idea how to work from the Terminal. My problem comes in here, because I’m a bit nervous installing something that requires me to get into my system to do something. All I want to do is get scripts working correctly. Can anyone answer these questions for me?
Is there a right or wrong to install Fink?
Can I harm my system in any way?
I’ve read Fink downloads Open Source projects. How is this different from just downloading the full version of Python (which I’ve already done)?
It seems most people who need Fink who are on Jaguar (10.3). Do I really need it?
Thanks for any help!
