0.95 to 0.96 upgrade glitch under Mac OS X (10.4.9)

Reported by: ajstarks@… Owned by: jacob
Component: Documentation Version: 0.96
Severity: Keywords: egg update mac
Cc: Triage Stage: Ready for checkin
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


one 0.95->0.96 upgrade gotcha on Mac OS X:

the 0.95 installation created /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/python2.3/site-packages/Django-0.95-py2.3.egg.

This caused the 0.95 version to continue to be imported even after 0.96 was installed (in /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/python2.3/site-packages/django)

The workaround is to rename the egg:
cd /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/python2.3/site-packages
sudo mv Django-0.95-py2.3.egg Django-0.95-py2.3.egg-

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted

I've added an "upgrade" section to the install docs for this sort of thing as I assume there will be plenty of these sorts of things along soon :)
