Hi. I have already managed to repackage a couple of apps using
eggs only zope (zc.zope3recipes on svn.zope.org). Yesterday, I
began creating another eggs-only application as a test however
this app requires z3c.viewlet. The z3c.viewlet package has a
dependency upon zope.viewlet. When running the buildout stopped
during the zope egg installation. I deleted the zope.viewlet egg
and reran the buildout and it stopped at the same point. Hoping
someone can advise if this a possible problem with zope.viewlet
or how I might debug this a bit more to complete the buildout.
The error in the buildout is as follows:
buildout: Installing testapp
zc.buildout.easy_install: Getting new distribution for zope.viewlet
zc.buildout.easy_install: Got zope.viewlet 3.4dev-r73833
Couldn't find index page for 'PILwoTk' (maybe misspelled?)
zc.buildout.easy_install: Getting new distribution for PILwoTk
Getting distribution for PILwoTk
Error: Couldn't find a distribution for PILwoTk.
zope.viewlet doesn't depend on PILwoTk. The above output from
buildout doesn't even say that it is (it was getting a *new*
distribution for zope.viewlet accidentally at the same time, it
seems). A google search for PILwoTk only turned up references to
Buildout needs to provide more help in this situation.
PILwoTk is a special distribution of PIL that I created that
installs with setuptools (easy_install or buildout) and doesn't
require Tk. :)
I'd be happy to make it more widely available. AFAIK, there isn't
any other distribution of PIL that installs cleanly with setuptools.
I think that would be widely appreciated, especially by the Plone
folks who are distributing Plone 3.0 also as eggs.
