There doesn't appear to be anything anything wrong with "distribute.egg-info/entry_points.txt"
It's the same file indeed. ..
The error is thrown on both the Gentoo and PyPi version.
Ok. I cannot reproduce this.
This seems to run fine on both Gentoo and PyPi versions. But running "python setup.py egg_info" throws the same error as I mentioned above.
Can you show us the output ? The error happens because split_sections() returns at some point a (group, lines) where group is None.
import pkg_resources for group, lines in pkg_resources.split_sections(open('distribute.egg-info/entry_points.txt').read()):
... if group is None and lines is not None: ... print 'ha!' ... print lines ...
You can also add a pdb in the code just before the raise, and call egg_info
