No lib/python/site-packages are created !
Nor should they. When you use develop eggs, they are added to the develop-eggs directory.
Yes I understand that, but I wanted to install those eggs to a regular directory after.
But there is a file mymodule.egg-link in develop-eggs with the following content: /home/users/project
Yup, that's what you should get.
. What am I doing wrong ?
I don't know, what are you trying to do?
The idea is to have a link between lib/python/site-packages/mymodule.egg-link and /home/user/project/mymodule. That way I can't both have a representative installed environment (using "import mymodule" works in this environment) and the ability to continue developing on my regular personal directory.
What is the point to have the develop eggs in the develop-eggs if I'm not able to use them ?
I was under the impression that I needed to install those eggs: http://www.k4ml.com/node/271
Using pip, if I install a development environment, I end up exactly with that file (content is the same): lib/python/site-packages/mymodule.egg-link
I hope that I was clear on my intent. Don't hesitate if it's not the case !
