hi webfaction folks,

I decided to post another question which is similar to the last question I have asked here. What I did to resolve the problem there was simply to move back all the eggs to ~/lib/python2.6. That worked.

Problem is, I created a git repository for ~/lib/python2.6 and cloned the repository to my PC. Same issue again: I have the exact ImportError again with the eggs and not the folders when PYTHONPATH is pointing to the working tree. I even edited easy-install.pth to use the full path of the eggs instead but was no help.

I probably can download the modules on my PC again but that would really defeat the purpose of syncing my files locally and remotely using git, isn't it?

Now, what really happen during easy_install that can cause such a problem? I mean, isn't it just downloading the egg and inserting an entry into the .pth file? I have no idea what this error can arise..

See this post http://community.webfaction.com/questions/3435/managepy-satchmo_check-fails-with-python27 In it I have written a script you can use that will solve your PATH/PYTHONPATH issues with egg & standard library directories. It works.
