AssertionError: Unexpected python lib dir: 'my_new_envpypy'

Commenting line 1167, disabling the use of the fix_lib64 function, fixes this.


Same here, using Slackware64.


pretty sure this is related to #306.
virtualenv is not handling how pypy breaks the mold for it's lib and site-packages locations.
both of these issues could probably be handled in one pull.

might make an attempt at this.


Same for Fedora 18.


+1 Same issue here. Any workarounds?


Same for Fedora 20...

bes@besnik-pc pi$ virtualenv --version
bes@besnik-pc pi$ pypy --version
Python 2.7.3 (6c8420e89b80b4c90720115e31c2793ba7fff08d, Nov 19 2013, 13:04:31)
[PyPy 2.2.0 with GCC 4.8.2 20131017 (Red Hat 4.8.2-1)]

Just in case anybody stumbles over this: I had the same problem with version 1.8.4, and then upgraded to version 1.11.4 and the problem seems to be fixed now.

So I think this issue can be closed.


Cheers @treo . If anyone still encounters the issue on latest virtualenv, please feel free to comment or reopen.
