I can't run easy_install-2.6. Older versions work fine.

For example, when I run

easy_install-2.5 --help
I get the a list of all the options for the command. But when I run
easy_install-2.6 --help
I get this back:

Traceback (most recent call last):  
  File "/usr/local/bin/easy_install-2.6", line 8, in <module>  
    load_entry_point('setuptools==0.6c9', 'console_scripts', 'easy_install-2.6')()  
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 277, in load_entry_point  
    return get_distribution(dist).load_entry_point(group, name)  
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 2179, in load_entry_point  
    raise ImportError("Entry point %r not found" % ((group,name),))  
ImportError: Entry point ('console_scripts', 'easy_install-2.6') not found  

What's wrong?

Hi Martin,

Can you submit a support ticket for us to look at this more closely?

The answer to this question is:

Download a new version of setuptools from PyPi, un-tar/zip it, run python2.x setup.py install where x is the version of Python that easy_install is not working for.
