I was surprised a couple of days ago when trying to assist a colleage with his
python setup on a ubuntu 9.04 system.
We built our c-extensions and manually copied them into place, but site-packages
wasn't there. It seems that ubuntu now wants stuff to go into
What is the relation between dist-packages/site-packages if any? Is this just a
name change or is there some other problem being addressed?
For developers is it best just to create one's own private installations from
the original tarballs?
