Issue #12 resolved

4.3.1 fails to install properly with pip

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

I am not sure it is a bug in cx_freeze but I have never had any problem with other packages. I use Ubuntu 12.10 (I have both 32b & 64b versions and the problem seem present with both)

sudo pip install cx_Freeze Downloading/unpacking cx-Freeze Downloading cx_Freeze-4.3.1.tar.gz (53Kb): 53Kb downloaded Running setup.py egg_info for package cx-Freeze adding base module named xxx ... adding base module named weakref

    The warning has been fixed (about no files named *.html in doc) but the error is due to a bug in pip -- if the package is not required to be installed as an egg then the error occurs because pip assumes the use of setuptools rather than distutils

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
