Description

Friends,

I had a tough time trying to install django since I am on a Mac and had previously installed Python 2.5.1.

Well, Python 2.5.1 already comes with sqlite and doesn't need pysqlite anymore. I didn't knew that because I never needed to use sqlite (or sql) before trying to install Django.

Django install guide says that (if I choose sqlite as my database) I have to install sqlite and pysqlite.

So I tried...

To install sqlite on Mac you need to install apple developer tools (almost 1 Gb download) to have a compiler. Another surprise was when I discovered that sqlite comes preinstalled on Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger... So I tried to install pysqlite but, after many hours, I finally figured that I already had sqlite+pysqlite all the time (since I installed Python 2.5.1).

Well, I just ask you to say on http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/install/ that you don't need to install sqlite neither pysqlite if you have installed Python 2.5.1 on your machine.

Thank you,
Márcio
