Up Topic Frequently Asked Questions / SeaDAS 7 FAQ / Installing the OCSSW Processors on a Mac
- By knowles Date 2017-03-27 10:48
In order to install the OCSWW processors on a Mac you will need to have the right version of python (the Mac default version 2.7.10 won't work).   Otherwise it complains and fails.

At the command line type "python --version" to get the version info.

1.  Updating the Python Version: Update this either laboriously with MacPorts or the quick and easy by downloading Anaconda Python Version 2.7:
https://www.continuum.io/downloads follow their instructions (currently: select Python Version 2.7 "COMMAND-LINE INSTALLER (358M)" for the download and then run "bash Anaconda2-4.3.1-MacOSX-x86_64.sh ").  This installs and automatically updates your $PATH environment variable.  Open a new window and make sure the version is right.  Currently "Python 2.7.13 :: Anaconda 4.3.0 (x86_64)".

NOTE: You will now need to restart your computer if you are running SeaDAS via the GUI.

2.  Delete OCSSW Directory and Reinstall OCSSW: Here's a nuanced bug: If your installation of OCSSW failed due to the wrong python version,  it will likely have left an ocssw directory there.  This directory is a failed installation of ocssw, and may prevent installation to succeed.   Delete this ocssw directory, and then install the processors.
