Just a note for upstream fix. On mac os x 10.7.3 with python 2.7.1,

pip install pyev

fails with a permissions error on configure. The fix is:

chmod 755 configure

This will prevent pyev from installing cleanly, and subsequently diesel from running.


I've also seen this fail in exactly the same way with a virtualenv on fedora core 16 linux.

This workaround also works with Python 2.6x on OSX 10.7.


This issue seems to be fixed with pyev==0.9.0
