Been playing with Python 2.6rc2. Have you tried virtualenv with it? Doesn't seem to work for me, since it attempts to download a 2.6 version of the setuptools egg, which doesn't exist. I glanced through the virtualenv source (in between extreme busy-ness at work), and it looked to me as though virtualenv would use a setuptools egg in /path/to/virtualenv.egg/support-files if one existed, but that doesn't seem to happen. The EZ_SETUP_PY embedded script seems to be the culprit, but I haven't dug into it any deeper than that due to work demands.
It's quite possible I'm just missing something stupid. If so, feel free to send me on my way.
Yes, the missing egg is causing the problem. ez_setup.py doesn't seem to use a tarball fallback (I'm not sure why). Phillip - can there either be a 2.6 egg uploaded, or have ez_setup.py install the tarball when the egg is missing?
