created an issue

Fresh install of jython 2.71b1 on Oracle Java7u55 on Mac OS X 10.9.2

$ jython 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 278, in <module>
  File "", line 212, in main
    from setuptools.command.easy_install import main
ImportError: No module named setuptools

If i download the mentioned egg file, the installation finishes, but then easy_install fails on every installation of anything.

    Based on the output, that looks like a very old version of setuptools. 0.6c11 is 4.5 years old. Can you try again with a late version? Please comment or re-open if you continue to have an issue with late releases.

    Sorry about that. Still having an issue with the latest release:

    Although I was able to install it but downloading the file first and then running it with jython.

    Even then, I still cannot install anything with easy_install:

    $ ./easy_install virtualenv
    Searching for virtualenv
    Couldn''t find index page for 'virtualenv' (maybe misspelled?)
    Scanning index of all packages (this may take a while)
    No local packages or download links found for virtualenv
    error: Could not find suitable distribution for Requirement.parse('virtualenv')
