i just had a user say the installer from distutils wininst crashed for him. he is using windows xp, which may or may not be a problem? the installer was also created for python2.2 using the latest rc1. his version of python was the activestate-2.2.
There was a bug in bdist_wininst in Python 2.2, up to version 2.2rc1. Fortunately this is fixed now, so Python 2.2 final (should be released today) should work fine. Note: This bug is not XP related. It results in a crash just before the files are actually copied.
sounds like a lot of possibilities, but i'm hoping people can rule out which of these situations are known to work fine, and perhaps which situations are known to not work? or perhaps it was a freak crash or a funky windows install?
so far i've had 75 downloads of the installer and this is the only problem reported. i'm just trying to be sure if there is a problem or not out there?
It seems only one actually tried to install this package, the bug is still there. I would suggest you remove the pygame-1.3.win32-py2.2.exe file, and rebuild it with Python 2.2 release version (if you can't wait, you can replace distutils\command\bdist_wininst.py in 2.2rc1 with the CVS version and rebuild).
