python - an eggs...

Hi Diez...

I've never used setuptools, (it's not on the box) and i don't have
easy_install tools installed...

But in looking at your output, I have some questions...
-The 1st, I'm assuming that easy_install works with python2.4.3?
-The 2nd, In the output, is see the durus egg... with the "durus" path being
relative to the egg... are the actual durus files in that dir??
-3rd question.. in searching the 'net, it appears that i have to download
setuptools in order to get easy_install. Am I missing something here, or is
this correct?

Thanks for your pointers on this!!

I doubt that. And I get the feeling that you did not read anything
belonging to setuptools I pointed you to.

I just did this:

192:/tmp deets$ easy_install-2.5 -Z durus

As you can see, ONE simple setuptools-command sufficed to install durus,
as unzipped egg so that you can see every single source file.


I don't know what durus is, how to use it and I don't care about it, so
I can't comment on your actual problems with durus itself.
