Installed latest Pypy 1.5 on Ubuntu 10.10:

Python 2.7.1 (b590cf6de419, Apr 30 2011, 02:00:38)
[PyPy 1.5.0-alpha0 with GCC 4.4.3] on linux2

Then installed 'pypy distribute_setup.py' to get easy_install.

Next tried to install twisted
'pypy -m easy_install twisted'

Gets to download it, but hangs at the very end and never completes. Verified 
this on one PC with Ubuntu 10.10 and on a laptop with 11.04

pypy -m easy_install twisted

Best match: Twisted 11.0.0
Downloading http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/T/Twisted/Twisted-
Processing Twisted-11.0.0.tar.bz2

Just hangs on that last line, never completes.

Checked via htop, was running a long time, very busy consuming 80/90% CPU...but 
never actually completing

status: unread -> chatting
