The same setup.py works fine with Python 2.6 (python setup.py install), and it fails with Python 3.1.


Traceback (most recent call last): File "setup.py", line 292, in <module> [os.path.join('doc', 'source', 'rpy2_logo.png')])] File "/usr/lib/python3.1/distutils/core.py", line 149, in setup dist.run_commands() File "/usr/lib/python3.1/distutils/dist.py", line 919, in run_commands self.run_command(cmd) File "/usr/lib/python3.1/distutils/dist.py", line 938, in run_command cmd_obj.run() File "/usr/local/packages/python/python-3.1/lib/python3.1/site-packages/distribute-0.6.10-py3.1.egg/setuptools/command/install.py", line 73, in run self.do_egg_install() File "/usr/local/packages/python/python-3.1/lib/python3.1/site-packages/distribute-0.6.10-py3.1.egg/setuptools/command/install.py", line 101, in do_egg_install cmd.run() File "/usr/local/packages/python/python-3.1/lib/python3.1/site-packages/distribute-0.6.10-py3.1.egg/setuptools/command/easy_install.py", line 236, in run self.easy_install(spec, not self.no_deps) File "/usr/local/packages/python/python-3.1/lib/python3.1/site-packages/distribute-0.6.10-py3.1.egg/setuptools/command/easy_install.py", line 439, in easy_install if not self.editable: self.install_site_py() File "/usr/local/packages/python/python-3.1/lib/python3.1/site-packages/distribute-0.6.10-py3.1.egg/setuptools/command/easy_install.py", line 1108, in install_site_py if not current.startswith('def __boot():'): TypeError: expected an object with the buffer interface

    That's because the file is open in binary mode. In python 3 read() returns bytes in that case.

    I can safely decode it to a str since this file is pure ascii.

    "I can safely decode it to a str since this file is pure ascii."

    The file causing trouble seems to be a .png data file file. In the call to setup, that's

     data_files = [(os.path.join('rpy2', 'images'), 
                       [os.path.join('doc', 'source', 'rpy2_logo.png')])]
