initial version

I had this same problem when trying to run Sage. My problem arose because the standard OS X python is being called instead of Sage's python, because the install script puts the path to Sage's executables AFTER /usr/bin/ in the $PATH variable.

My work-around was to open a new terminal window and enter the following two lines:

export PATH=/Applications/$PATH
'/Applications/'/sage --notebook

This presumes you are running BASH, which is what recent versions of OS X use by default, and that you are running the version of Sage; change the path to your Sage installation if you are using a different version. (I got the idea to do this from this posting on a mailing list.)
