A few questions to help:
  1. What version of Mac OS X are you on?
  2. Did you download a prebuilt installation (if so, which one)? Or did
  you build from source?
  3. Which version of Python 2.4 are you using?
  4. What specific error message(s) are you seeing?

I'm not in front of a Mac at the moment (so can't check if I'm using
2.4.1 or 2.4.3) but I'm using one of the latest builds from without any issues.

The current recommended version is the Universal Build of 2.4.3:

Feel welcome to follow this up with me offlist.
