Problems with installation #35

I'm running a Debian (Crunchbang - Wheezy) system at home and want to download my Garmin 910XT exercises, however, I'm having trouble installing python-ant-downloader.

Everything installs up until I run "sudo easy_install python-ant-downloader" and then get a long error message with the last part being:

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/setuptools/command/", line 638, in install_item
dists = self.install_eggs(spec, download, tmpdir)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/setuptools/command/", line 828, in install_eggs
return self.build_and_install(setup_script, setup_base)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/setuptools/command/", line 1105, in build_and_install
self.run_setup(setup_script, setup_base, args)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/setuptools/command/", line 1094, in run_setup
run_setup(setup_script, args)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/setuptools/", line 30, in run_setup
lambda: execfile(
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/setuptools/", line 72, in run
return func()
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/setuptools/", line 32, in
{'file':setup_script, 'name':'main'}
File "", line 2, in
ImportError: No module named ez_setup

It appears to be a problem with the easy_install command.

Can anyone help?


I got around this by doing:

sudo easy_install ez_setup


thx jzacsh! it works like a charm
braiden, you just have to update the easy setup doc to close this issue, you're lucky ;)
