I followed the instructions at http://www.satchmoproject.com/docs/dev/quickstart.html to install satchmo and I was able to install everything correctly (I think) on an ubuntu 11.04 machine.
The pip commands installed django 1.3.1 and satchmo 0.9.3
Then I ran "python clonesatchmo.py" command successfully and then ./manage.py runserver. The server started with no errors, but when I tried to access 127.0.0.1:8000/admin/ , all the static files were not loaded. Looking at the html source code of the page, all of them were at /media/css/
Something may be broken.
