"ipy setup.py install" in dreampie dir fails

Asked by dickswanson on 2010-02-25

Under IronPython "ipy setup.py build" appears to work but then on install it tries (and fails) to byte-compile the subp_zips.py.
I assume this is a vestige of CPython.
Executing 'ipy dreampie' from the expanded distribution directory also fails when it tries to import the
subprocess module (No module name subprocess).
Has anyone got this to run under IronPython 2.6?

DreamPie can run IronPython as a subprocess, but the main process must
be CPython.

So to install DreamPie from source, write:
> python setup.py install (where "python" is CPython 2.5 or 2.6)
and then:
> dreampie ipy

Or you can run ./dreampie ipy without running setup.py.

Note that you'll need pygtksourceview2.

Hope that this helps,
Noam
