#2888 closed defect (fixed)

Django install fails to find setuptools from Cheese Shop

I just checked out the latest version from the SVN trunk [3896] of Django and tried to install with Python 2.5 on Windows XP. It tries to incorrectly download the file which does not exist (throws a urllib2.HTTPError).

Downloading the latest setuptools 0.6c3 and renaming the file to setuptools-0.6c1-py2.5.egg in the setup directory works fine and the installer correctly processes the .egg.

I'd suggest that the installer fetch the directory indext from and process it for the correct file name, if possible.

/me sighs.

We really need something that's less brittle than setuptools.
