in the last few days there was more than one thread discussing PyQt
installation on Snow Leopard but I'm still unable to get it running.

In my case the error happens at import time (I can't provide details
since I'm not on my macbook right now).

Please can you provide more details on installation procedure you used?

Which version of Qt 4.6 RC did you used? Cocoa? 32 or 64 bits?
In this case did you still use the -arch=i386 flag?

Thanks in advance

Antonio Valentino
