OK, some people are having trouble running Mattricks on Mac OS X.

First, you should install wxPython and pyXML according to the webpage.
Hopefully you will come to a stage where python complains about _bsddb
when staring Mattricks.py (e.g. by double-clicking on it)

The trick then is to do as follows (where # denotes a new line as the mail
will break the lines):

# curl
http://undefined.org/python/pimp/bsddb-4.1.6.darwin-6.6-Power_Macintosh.tar.gz > bsddb.tgz
# tar xzvf bsddb.tgz
# mv ./Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/python2.3/site-packages/_bsddb.so .
# install_name_tool -change
/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/Python
/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/Python
_bsddb.so
# mv _bsddb.so
/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/python2.3/

Then it should actually work (according to those who knows)

For more information look at:

Good luck!
