can't build egg for plugin

I think this may turn out to be more of a support request than a bug ticket. Therefore, this may not be the correct place to ask this question. So, advanced apologies, and thanks for any and all help.

For some reason, we can't build the egg for this plugin. We're running Python23, with setuptools ver 0.6c9.win32-py2.3, and Trac 0.11. For setuptools, we used an executable distribution, which seemed to install into the right directory without any problems, so I assume setuptools is running correctly. However, I don't have a way to test it, and our timeframe to have this running is limited.

Here's the error:

$ python bdist_egg
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 3, in <module>
    from setuptools import setup
ImportError: No module named setuptools

We've modified the first line of with the correct path to Python23, and we've added the correct path to setuptools in the machine's environment var path. Everything seems to be in order, but it's still not working. Can someone please give us a hand here?

Is there any more error message (or a verbose flag you can set)? This is not something easily debugged from what you have provided. You might try opening a python shell (or ipython) and typing 'import setuptools' to see if you can import it there, or if you get this or a more explicit error.

Another approach might be to just python install to see if there are other error messages. (Based on what you have provided either there is an error in setuptools, or setuptools is not properly installed.)

At some point in the recent past there was a bug in the official setuptools release (I think version 6c7). I am not sure if you are experiencing this or a path problem. Further more it has been a very long time since I tried to do python with windows, so I wont be able to help clear up path issues there.

HTH, Russ
