Installation procedure does not set correct permissions on template files

The standard 'python install' procedure for django does not set the file permissions correctly on the template files that it installs under the /usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/django directory.

This means that when you try to go through the tutorial, when you try to view the /admin/ page for the first time, you get a TemplateDoesNotExist exception.

I had to do:

chmod -R og+rX /usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/django/

to get my django installation working.

We have plenty of evidence that the installation procedure works, and I just tested it myself and it worked fine for me.

It's difficult to know what is going on here - you haven't provided any of the details that would help us reproduce your problem, like, for example, operating system, the version you tried to install, and the exact installation procedure you followed.

Closing worksforme. If you care to provide more explicit instructions for reproducing your problem, please reopen.
