python-setuptools.tcz issue to build Ansible
« on: September 13, 2020, 08:19:32 AM »
I’m having an issue with python-setuptools.tcz to build ansible.
I ran into this also with the previous available version 41.0.1 and now also with 45.2.0.
I found a workaround by installing setuptools manually.

Error I get:
Code: [Select]
$ python setup.py build
Ansible now needs setuptools in order to build. Install it using your package manager (usually python-setuptools) or via pip (pip install setuptools).

The part in the ansible code that looks to be involved:
Code: [Select]
try:                                                                               
    from setuptools import setup, find_packages                                     
    from setuptools.command.build_py import build_py as BuildPy             
    from setuptools.command.install_lib import install_lib as InstallLib     
    from setuptools.command.install_scripts import install_scripts as InstallScripts
except ImportError:                               
    print("Ansible now needs setuptools in order to build. Install it using"
          " your package manager (usually python-setuptools) or via pip (pip"
          " install setuptools).", file=sys.stderr)
    sys.exit(1)

If I comment out the exit line I see the following:
Code: [Select]
$ python setup.py build
Ansible now needs setuptools in order to build. Install it using your package manager (usually python-setuptools) or via pip (pip install setuptools).
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 104, in <module>
    class BuildPyCommand(BuildPy):
NameError: name 'BuildPy' is not defined

If I install setuptools using the following steps it works fine with ansilbe:
Code: [Select]
cd /tmp
mkdir setuptools
cd /tmp/setuptools
wget https://files.pythonhosted.org/packages/68/75/d1d7b7340b9eb6e0388bf95729e63c410b381eb71fe8875cdfd949d8f9ce/setuptools-45.2.0.zip
unzip setuptools-45.2.0.zip
cd /tmp/setuptools/setuptools-45.2.0
python setup.py build
sudo python setup.py install

Are you sure that you have python3.6-setuptools.tcz installed ?

I haven't moved on yet, still with Python-2.7...

I would personally suggest python3.
Do you have python-setuptools.tcz ?

I am on x64 repo. I don't know if you are on 32 bit one. Please also say the architecture and the TC version you are on (find it with the "version" command).

Oops yes, that is missing.
arch = 32bit
TC version = 11.0

python-setuptools.tcz is indeed what I had installed.

When I first created the extension for Ansible it was advised to use Python2.

Is the issue solved ?

If yes, ask Rich to mark as solved.

Hi, Yes just found the reason to be a missing dependency.

I think extension 'python-cffi.tcz' is missing 'libffi.tcz' as dependency.
