Hi, All.
I'm a (old....) delphi developer.
I want to learn Python.
I've python 2.7 and django.
For learning purpose I want to use firebird.
But, package (egg) to use firebird needs easy_install for setup.
When i run:

python ez_setup.py install

python says me error:

Downloading http://pypi.python.org/packages/2.7/s/setuptools/setuptools-0.6c11-p
Searching for install
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/install/
Couldn't find index page for 'install' (maybe misspelled?)
Scanning index of all packages (this may take a while)
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/
No local packages or download links found for install
Best match: None

.py", line 475, in fetch_distribution
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'clone'

In download site I get info about installer works only on win32, but I'm uisng 64 bit version, so I need to do setup manually.

Searching error, I see a lot of message baout errors AFTER easy_install was done.
Also, I see that some link used in python file does'nt exist or is broken.

TIA for any suggestion.
