Comment 3 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2011-10-08 22:33:42 UTC
I can't reproduce.  Are you able to reproduce on a different machine?  Is there some other commandline switch that you're giving easy_install?  What version of python do you have installed?  Does rpm -V python-setuptools and rpm -V python python-libs  all come back with no reported problems?

$ easy_install -n
install_dir /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/
error: can't create or remove files in install directory

The following error occurred while trying to add or remove files in the
installation directory:

    [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/test-easy-install-8500.write-test'

The installation directory you specified (via --install-dir, --prefix, or
the distutils default setting) was:


Perhaps your account does not have write access to this directory?  If the
installation directory is a system-owned directory, you may need to sign in
as the administrator or "root" account.  If you do not have administrative
access to this machine, you may wish to choose a different installation
directory, preferably one that is listed in your PYTHONPATH environment

Comment 4 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2011-10-08 22:52:57 UTC
I see reference to bsddb3 in the backtrace.  Doing easy_install -n bsddb3 reproduces the backtrace.  I think that there's a typo of a variable name in the bdist_egg.py file.  Looks like it was fixed in 0.6.15::


* Fixed typo in bdist_egg
* Several issues under Python 3 has been solved.
* Issue 146: Fixed missing DLL files after easy_install of windows exe package.

I'll update to the latest upstream version.
