thanks for your reply. I need to re-thing my plan for the builout and found some ideas.

having a problem with my buildout and like to request some hints. I have a buildout which creates a simple python interpreter environment like explained in the buildout manual.
So an interpreter script.
Additionally I use a custom script.
Not sure what that is or why it matters.
It is a script which use the API of a trytond server (www.tryton.org) to create a database and install several modules into this database. The dependencies of trytond server are installed into the mypython environment. So when I wanted to maintain trytond I need to start it within the mypython environment, for now.
My problem is: How can I tell my_recipe to use the (newly created) mypython interpreter, instead of using the standard python interpreter?
Or as a workaround: Is there a way to install the custom interpreter before the buildout, maybe on bootstrap?
The custom interpreter isn't a true Python installation. Generally, you aren't going to be able to bootstrap a buildout with it. Why do you want to do this? What problem are you trying to solve?
Problem is to buildout a complete deployment of trytond including a database and installation of all needed modules. The buildout has these coarse-grained stages/parts:
1. Install dependencies into mypython as eggs 2. Install trytond and all tryton-modules needed 3. Create Database/Install Modules: (my custom recipe) import trytond create_database if not exist install_modules into database 4. Debian system works (init.d-script, links to /var/log, /var/run,...)
Part 3 is the problem, because for now, import trytond needs to be started in the mypython environment, because of the dependencies.
I think I rewrite this part and use the xmlrpc API of trytond and start the server in a prior part with a system call to an init.d-script. Then I do the steps from 3. inside the buildout via xmlrpc. This way I do not need the mypython environment in my recipe.
Thanks a lot! Cheers Udo
