An error with the file parsing for which package is the source archive.
trying to use netCDF4 in buildout I get this error on my ubuntu machine (python2.6):
Getting distribution for 'netCDF4'. Error: Couldn't install: netCDF4 0.8.2.macosx-10.5-ppc
I think because easy_install is getting the wrong file from here: http://code.google.com/p/netcdf4-python/downloads/list
It is mistaking the ppc binary for macosx as the source file. so I'd like to tell it to use: http://netcdf4-python.googlecode.com/files/netCDF4-0.8.2.tar.gz
Note the ppc macosx file name: 'http://netcdf4-python.googlecode.com/files/netCDF4-0.8.2.macosx-10.5-ppc.tar.gz' is the one that's being mistaken for. It should be getting 'http://netcdf4-python.googlecode.com/files/netCDF4-0.8.2.tar.gz' instead.
It seems to be an error with the file parsing for which package is the source archive.
