> Please install python-setuptools-devel.

Thanks, but why is this in '-devel'?  Not what I expected.  I'm not developing 
python-setuptools, I'm using it.
Comment 3 Konstantin Ryabitsev 2007-10-29 10:15:06 EDT
Because easy_install runs a series of checks against python, some of which
require parts only provided by python-devel.
