Hi Jerome,

Some of the people in our group have found it painful to get everything 
in place to run the AG software on Mac OS X. Getting Python and wxPython 
installed, etc. (I am not 100% sure of the details, but what I heard was 
that it was painful). Did you experience any of this? The way I read 
your email is that the Python and AG software installs relatively easily 
and it sound like you are mostly having problems with the media tools.

Is that true? This has not been our experience thus far - not sure if we 
are doing something wrong or not...

Any info you could provide would be helpful...
