@qwcode: What do you make of this error? Is there something wrong with the setuptools wheel, or pkg_resources, or one of the other packages?

Original comment by qwcode (Bitbucket: qwcode, GitHub: qwcode):


the associated virtualenv issue is pypa/virtualenv#524

@pmoore suspects it's a bug with the assertion in _zipinfo_name. I'm not sure at the moment.

this virtualenv release is very different in that it's adding 2 whl/zip files (for setuptools and pip) to the pythonpath, and then using pip to do the pip/setuptools install from wheels

it's only an issue when virtualenv is installed using easy_install (or python setup.py install)

Original comment by qwcode (Bitbucket: qwcode, GitHub: qwcode):


to recreate easily outside of virtualenv, just add a pip or setuptools wheel file to your pythonpath, and then import pkg_resources

EDITED: this is not generally true, it's only true if you add the pip or setuptools wheel as installed in the virtualenv Egg

what's happening:

  • it's trying to add the setuptools whl/zip to the working set
  • it checking for 'PKG-INFO' in the zip
  • it ends up constructing the zip path using the virtualenv egg root (which contains the setuptools wheel), and not the setuptools whl file as the root

still trying to sort out where exactly it goes wrong.

Original comment by qwcode (Bitbucket: qwcode, GitHub: qwcode):


ok, I have a fix locally, that seems ok.

the problematic code is here: https://bitbucket.org/pypa/setuptools/src/735202ca6848d58bc59022f85cde10af64a61a7e/pkg_resources.py?at=default#cl-1383

this is what incorrectly constructs the path using the wrong root.

my fix is to override _setup_prefix in the ZipProvider to just pass.

If I can figure out PRs in bitbucket, maybe I'll log it.

Original comment by qwcode (Bitbucket: qwcode, GitHub: qwcode):


overriding _setup_prefix to just pass is too aggressive.
trying to sort out what the best fix would be that's not just a hack, which means actually understanding pkg_resources internals...

Is this the same issue I'm having? It's caused by installing virtualenv with easy_install instead of pip, but gives a different traceback:

@qwcode, @jaraco

Thanks for fixing this.

I don't mean to rush you, but can you estimate how long before this fix is on pypi? I need to weigh up whether it's worth me writing workarounds into our deployment scripts or if I should just wait until this is released.

Original comment by mdboom (Bitbucket: mdboom, GitHub: mdboom):


Is there going to be a new release of virtualenv to fix this?

I realize the fix itself is in setuptools here: https://bitbucket.org/pypa/setuptools/pull-request/32/convert-find_in_zip-into-find_eggs_in_zip/diff

but virtualenv 1.11 still includes the setuptools 2.0.1 wheel which doesn't contain the fix.

I believe 1.11.1 is in RC and will be released soon. You might get a more detailed answer by inquiring on the virtualenv ticket linked above.

the immediate work around is to not install virtualenv with easy_install, but rather pip. but virtualenv-1.11.1 should be out in a day or so, and that will work in any install scenario.

Great -- the following steps worked fine -- which implicitly set up the pip install -- sorry not a python maven....Note for other novices, 'myenv' is a string I add and the local install happens in a subdirectory created with the same name here.

>virtualenv --system-site-packages myenv

###>virtualenv myvirtualenv###
###>source myvirtualenv//bin/activate####

This worked for me. Thanks.

yes, unfortunately, we fixed the bug in setuptools' pkg_resources, but not in the vendored copy that pip now bundles inside itself (as of pip-1.5.1).

pip-1.5.2 and virtualenv-1.11.2 will contain that fix
