Re: [pygame] pygame1.9 does not install in ubuntu from easy_install


this is confirmed, it's not working...

It's when setuptools is installed, it takes over some code in distutils which raises this error.  Without setuptools installed the source install works fine.

This only happens with OSX source installs I think, not linux/windows/etc since OSX is the only platform that invokes setuptools.

So I'll do another release right away with an added readme.html file.

Marcus: I've already uploaded the tar ball...
MD5 (pygame-1.9.1release.tar.gz) = 1c4cdc708d17c8250a2d78ef997222fc
MD5 (pygame-1.9.1release.zip) = 01824b893d1d910fa3fa8bb37740f580


The binaries and rest of the release will happen later.

   As it only seems to have an impact on easy_install, I'm fine with
   it, as
   the port uses the usual setup procedure. So, if there are no more
   complains from other packaging systems, we can leave anything as is.



sorry, I spoke before reading all my emails...

there does seem to be another bug report (about solar wolf not working)... I'll investigate that soon.  Don't have much internet access at the moment.

Or if anyone else can confirm if solar wolf is working for them?  From the tar.gz source installer?


Superficially this bug looks like an incomplete install of Pygame 1.9.0-1 on Arch Unix.


cool thanks.  No new quick release then.
