I've just tried migrating a grok project to a new Linux box, and the
bootstrap process fails as it depends on distribute == 0.6.24, which
bootstrap tries to install into the system site-packages:-
An error occurred when trying to install distribute 0.6.24. Look above
this message for any errors that were output by easy_install.
Getting distribution for 'distribute==0.6.24'.
Error: Couldn't install: distribute 0.6.24
I already have distribute version 0.6.34 installed and the
setuptools-0.6c11-py2.7.egg-info file already exists. For now, I am just
testing a non-root user installation. I haven't set up a virtualenv
sandbox on this user account yet, which would no doubt install distribute
into the virtualenv's site-packages, but I'm curious as to where the
distribute version is pinned down.
In buildout.cfg, I have added the following:
extends = http://grok.zope.org/releaseinfo/1.5.5/versions.cfg
# newest= false
versions = versions
distribute >= 0.6.34
However, these changes don't remove the required dependency on distribute
version 0.6.24. There's no mention of distribute in the versions.cfg file
or the bootstrap script.
Is there any way I can configure bootstrap to use the version of
distribute I already have installed?
