Hmm, then it's strange.. Kenton (cc-ed) also got the same problem when running this on Ubuntu + python 2.6. The pkg_resources is from /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/, while the egg should have a higher import priority than /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages in sys.path...

I got some error messages when using ez_setup to download and use the easy_install.

So I guess there might be some import problem in my machine (ubuntu lucid) that the pkg_resources.py cannot be loaded from the egg?
Try running this script in your project directory:
from ez_setup import use_setuptools use_setuptools()
import sys, setuptools, pkg_resources print sys.path print pkg_resources.__file__ print setuptools.__file__
This should tell us what's going on with your "import problem" more specifically. ;-)
