Working through the tutorial ( I get a syntax error when I run the following line: python sql polls. I named the project "tutorial" instead of "mysite" but other than that everything is the same. I copied and pasted the model code.

I'm using the development version downloaded from svn. I'm on OS X and my database is MySQL. The error message, in full:

towy:~/sites/django/tutorial marc$ python sql polls

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

You have a syntax error in your file. I suspect you want this:

votes = models.IntegerField()
