I can't seem to get my head around solving this problem after installing Python 2.7 on a mac os x 10.6.4. The error message that comes out after clicking IDLE from the applications reads:

"IDLE's subprocess didn't make connection. Either IDLE can't start a subprocess or personal firewall software is blocking the connection."

Appreciate any help.

This is a duplicate of open Issue9227.  As described there, a workaround is to use the 32-bit only ("10.3") installer for Python 2.7.

Ned, any reason not to close this as a duplicate, with #9227 as superseder?

Terry, go ahead, I think that's the proper resolution.

I didn't see this issue resolved in the changelog for 2.7.1 release. Are we going to wait until 2.7.2 now??

This issue was closed as a duplicate of #9227.
Please direct further comments there.
In any case, all issues wait until a person with the requisite knowledge volunteers a fix and a core developer commits the fix.
