User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686 on x86_64; rv:8.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0.1
Build Identifier: MonetDB-Aug2011-SP3

Ubuntu keeps python packages in /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages, not in site-packages. The latter is typically for user-build/installed packages (i.e., built from source code), and those should end up in /usr/local/lib/pythonx.x or a cumstom directory anyway.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Follow install instructions:
  2. We only want to install on the client nodes:
  3. sudo apt-get install monetdb-client python-monetdb

Actual Results:

It is installed in /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages

Expected Results:

installed in /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages

This is hopefully fixed now.
No test since this cannot be tested in our test setup.
