I'm trying to install picard (http://musicbrainz.org/wd/PicardDownload) with python -c "import setuptools;execfile('setup.py')" install --single-version-externally-managed --root=/path/to/root but it breaks with: usage: -c [global_opts] cmd1 [cmd1_opts] [cmd2 [cmd2_opts] ...] or: -c --help [cmd1 cmd2 ...] or: -c --help-commands or: -c cmd --help
error: option --single-version-externally-managed not recognized
Is that ok and i should use ./setup.py without "import setuptools;execfile('setup.py')" hack, or if this a bug in setuptools that should be fixed?
I'm having trouble reproducing the problem, as this tarball:
doesn't appear to contain a setup.py. Could you give me some more information about what package you are installing from and where its setup.py is coming from?
Sorry, i dind't say, i use 0.7.0-beta3 version https://helixcommunity.org/download.php/2009/picard-0.7.0-beta3.tar.gz
(By the way, --root implies --single-version-externally-managed, so you don't need to use the latter if you are using the former. However, you should only be using --root if you are planning to copy the contents of /path/to/root *to* the actual root, /. Usually this option is used in conjunction with a packaging tool such as RPM. If you aren't planning to copy /path/to/root to /, you shouldn't be using --root either.)
Yeah, i want to make a package. thanks for tip, i wan't use --single-... for manual tests :) (but i'll use it for packae building as it helps to find errors like this)
