I've I think I've installed all of the necessary software to run SimplyCv.

But attempting to start it from the command line I get a long line of errors that I do not know what to make of. (See below)

Could somebody point me in the direction of what went wrong in the installation process.

I use a macbook pro running 10.6.8.

Snow Leopard installs are usually pretty easy. Did you install from source or superpack? Is that the full error message? What happens if you do an easy_install numpy?
