Of course, I am running Ubuntu 6.06 on Intel x86, and not macosx. My Python version is 2.4.3, not 2.5.

I don't know why setuptools would choose a file with the "macosx10.4" platform specifier for a Linux box. Weird.

  • Owner changed from cmlenz to jruigrok
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Is this still a problem on recent Linux systems with up to date easy_install? I cannot replicate this at all.

I happen to be on Ubuntu 8.04 now, which has Python 2.5. To be honest, I'm not sure if I used easy_install or compiled the source from SVN. I'm pretty comfortable with SVN+setup.py from all of the Trac plugins that I've installed that I could see me using either solution.

Does this help anything?

How does easy_install find the packages to get? I looked at the version of the wiki when I filed this ticket, and I noticed compared to the download page that exists now there was no linux eggs. Well, it's easier to point to it -- wiki:Download@35. It's interesting to note the commit comment, which mentions OSX download: "Fix Python version on OS X download (#188)"
