   Howdy! I'm new to the list.
   I just installed PyNIO from source onto my Mac (OS X 10.6.8) with only one departure from instructions (I needed to use the config_fc command for setup.py). I'm using the Enthought Python Distribution free version 7.3-2.
   When I type "import Nio", I get the following error:

>>> import nio
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: dlopen(/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/7.3/lib/python2.7/site-packages/PyNIO/nio.so, 2): Symbol not found: _GDattach
  Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/7.3/lib/python2.7/site-packages/PyNIO/nio.so
  Expected in: flat namespace
 in /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/7.3/lib/python2.7/site-packages/PyNIO/nio.so

   Some googling implies that GDattach is associated with the HDF-EOS2 package. But I didn't install HDF-EOS2 and the value of HAS_HDFEOS in my user environment is 0. Furthermore, the recommended version of HDF-EOS2 is not available at ftp://edhs1.gsfc.nasa.gov/pub/, which is where the installation instructions say I should obtain
   Any ideas?
