egg info for python-sqlobject
Last modified: 2016-09-19 22:38:59 EDT
Description of problem:
python-sqlobject-0.9.2-1.el5 appears to need to provide egg info to play nicely with TurboGears-1.0.4 that is also in EPEL. pkg_resources.require() checks for sqlobject fail, though you can import and use sqlobject from a python interactive shell.
It appears fedora versions of python-sqlobject were updated to provide this information for this very reason.
From update log for python-sqlobject-0.9.3-2.fc8:
SQLObject needs to provide egg-info in order for TG-1.0.4 to work. I plan on
pushing this to stable pretty quickly. I'll try to get people to test it ASAP."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install TurboGears which will pull in python-sqlobject
2. import pkg_resources; pkg_resources.require('sqlobject')
3. returns the package cannot be found.
Package cannot be found, there is not an egg-info directory for sqlobject.
expect pkg_resources.require('sqlobject') to work
Running on CentOS 5.2
I just built python-sqlobject-0.9.7-1.el5, which should fix this issue. It's currently in the needsign queue, and will be released in the next EPEL push.
This was fixed a while ago.
