This non-system python-2.4.4 has an empty site-packages, and is owned by root. I don't have setuptools or buildout installed in the non-system python. When working with a z3c.formdemo checkout for example, I can start: # /opt/python24/python/bin/python bootstrap.py Without using sudo. That bootstrap process creates a local bin/buildout, uses setuptools and zc.buildout from ~/.buildout/eggs, and the non-system python: #!/opt/python24/python/bin/python import sys sys.path[0:0] = [ '/home/myuser/.buildout/eggs/setuptools-0.6c7-py2.4.egg', '/home/myuser/.buildout/eggs/zc.buildout-1.0.0b30-py2.4.egg', ] import zc.buildout.buildout if __name__ == '__main__': zc.buildout.buildout.main() I'm going to familiarize myself with virtualenv; I haven't yet only because the above method seemed both convenient and clear about its use of python environment and eggs.
