Error installing pycrypto in setuptools 10.0 #319
Originally reported by: Anonymous
While installing pycrypto using buildout I got the following error
Getting distribution for 'pycrypto==2.6.1'.
error: invalid command 'bdist_egg'
I see the same error. Here's what's happening - setuptools is removing itself from the environment before invoking setup.py for pycrypto. It does this to avoid the issue described in #315.
Since pycrypto uses only distutils and not setuptools, the commands for setuptools aren't available.
