Each Answer to this Q is separated by one/two green lines.
I used easy_install to install pip, pip to install django, virtualenv, and virtualenvwrapper.
I have just returned to it a few weeks later and django does not seem to work anymore, but more concerning is I can’t start the process over again as easy_install is returning the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/easy_install-2.7", line 10, in <module> load_entry_point('setuptools==0.6c12dev-r88846', 'console_scripts', 'easy_install')() File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/setuptools-0.6c11-py2.7.egg/pkg_resources.py", line 318, in load_entry_point File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/setuptools-0.6c11-py2.7.egg/pkg_resources.py", line 2220, in load_entry_point ImportError: Entry point ('console_scripts', 'easy_install') not found
After a good evening of hunting I am stumped as to how to resolve this.
You seem to have a version conflict; note the
setuptools-0.6c11-py2.7.egg path, but the
/usr/bin/easy_install-2.7 script wants to load
The latter is a development version; it has the revision number of a subversion repository embedded in the version (
I suspect you have two python installations; one is the system version (in
/System/Library and the other is installed with the python installer into
/Library/, and the stub script in
/usr/bin/ may be installed with the system python.
If so, there’ll be another copy of the stub at
/Library/Python/2.7/bin/easy_install-2.7, which should work correctly.
I had the same issue, eventually ended up running the 2.7.3 easy_install by
/opt/python2.7.3/bin/easy_install which worked fine
