Scanning installed packages No setuptools distribution found running install Checking .pth file support in /home/lemburg/tmp/distribute/lib/python/ error: can't create or remove files in install directory
The following error occurred while trying to add or remove files in the installation directory:
[Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/lemburg/tmp/distribute/lib/python/test-easy-install-11648.pth'
The installation directory you specified (via --install-dir, --prefix, or the distutils default setting) was:
This directory does not currently exist. Please create it and try again, or choose a different installation directory (using the -d or --install-dir option).
Note that in standard distutils, the --home option will create all necessary directories, so the above traceback is unexpected.
