Python eggs and openSuse 10.2 errors

Heyas

So I got all hooked on python eggs at pycon, but then I got all hooked
on openSuse 10.2 (with the xgl cube and the beryl fanciness, and some
other misc debris). Unfortunately, it doesnt appear that openSuse
10.2, which is using python 2.5, wants to play nicely with python
eggs. When I try to run `sudo python ez_setup.py`, I simply get an
error:
Downloading http://cheeseshop.python.org/package....6c5-py2.5.egg
error: invalid Python installation: unable to open /usr/lib/
python2.5/config/Makefile (No such file or directory)

The /usr/lib/python2.5/config directory didnt exist, so I tried
creating it but with no change in results.
Thanks,
Tfdml

Ahh bother...

After messing around with yast, I realized that I didnt have the
python dev packages installed. Once I installed them with yast, I
just had to create a directory 'site-packages' under /usr/local/lib/
python2.5 and it all worked fine...

Bah!

You need to install the development package for python. It should be called
python2.5-devel or something similar.

I'm trying to install a program that uses Durus on a server. It appears that if a Python program uses eggs, it creates a ~/.python-eggs/ directory, so the home directory must be writeable. This conflicts with server environments where you want to run a daemon with minimum privileges. Second, it appears to use the real user ID rather than the effective user ID to choose the home directory. In this case I'm trying to use start-stop-daemon...

Eggs are important to Python and will become more so over the next few years, if understood and embraced by the community. They are a key competitive feature - I've been asked so many times what is the Python equivalent to CPAN and finally we're developing an answer.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
