Successes and failures trickle in (So far three of them...)

So far the count (for people other than me) of successes/failures is 1:2, with Blake getting a flawless install on OS X and Simon and Bill getting "Unexpected HTML page found at" errors. I'm now plowing through the 170 messages sitting in my distutils folder (I subscribe, but I often ignore the mailing list) to see if this is a known problem before I start asking stupid questions. I'm wondering if this is a setuptools version problem (i.e. maybe the sourceforge download code is getting more robust as versions progress).

I updated Python on my workstation to 2.5 last night so I could generate a 2.5 egg. Unfortunately, SIP (a dependency for my primary IDE (Eric)) doesn't seem to build on Python 2.5 on Gentoo. Sigh.

I won't be back to that machine this evening, so won't be able to test the 2.5 egg myself. Anyway, back to my distutils catchup reading.

    SourceForge keeps fiddling and messing things up, and it just sucks. You can upload the package directly to the Cheese Shop ("python upload"). This is much more reliable. It's a well-connected box with a big disk, no need for the dumb mirroring stuff.
