python-setuptools 0.6c9-1.fc9 broken
Last modified: 2009-01-21 17:55:58 EST
python-setuptools 0.6c9-1.fc9 is broken. Specifically, /usr/bin/easy_install (and /usr/bin/easy_install-2.5) still refer to version 0.6c8 of python-setuptools.
Simply updating those files to refer to 0.6c9 as expected seems to get things working again.
Looking at the contents of /usr/bin/easy_install from http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/python-setuptools/0.6c9/1.fc9/noarch/python-setuptools-devel-0.6c9-1.fc9.noarch.rpm:
# EASY-INSTALL-ENTRY-SCRIPT: 'setuptools==0.6c9','console_scripts','easy_install'
__requires__ = 'setuptools==0.6c9'
from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
load_entry_point('setuptools==0.6c9', 'console_scripts', 'easy_install')()
Unless I'm missing something, everything is correct.
Note, that /usr/bin/easy_install* is not provided by python-setuptools, but python-setuptools-devel. Perhaps these files on your system are left over from a manual installation? You can check by running:
rpm -qf /usr/bin/easy_install
Damn, you're right. I swear I checked that /usr/bin/easy_install was part of python-setuptools, but I just double checked, and it was not. It was indeed left over from a previous install.
Changing the status to NOTABUG, since this obviously is not.
