1.0/InstallNonRoot page shows incorrect option usage for tgsetup.py

Description

Under Method 1, step 3

$ python tgsetup.py --install-scripts=</path/to/new/environment>/bin/

I get:

error: option --install-scripts not recognized

The option list shows --script-dir but not --install-scripts, so I tried that instead and that appeared to work. So I suspect it was a mistake.

But could somebody more knowledgeable confirm this? I'm not familiar enough to be confident making this change on my own.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Keywords installation added
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Severity changed from blocker to major
  • Summary changed from suspected use of incorrect switch for tgsetup.py to 1.0/InstallNonRoot page shows incorrect option usage for tgsetup.py

Fixed in doc revision 6.

This was my error, based on the inconsistency between the name of the easy_install command line option and the distutils configuration file option.

The diff was correct, but you don't need to provide diffs for on-write-protected pages. Just change the page yourself directly. If you are not sure about the change, say so in the change comment. The wiki has revision control, so have no fear that you are breaking something, we can always revert the change.

If you are reviewing the doc and have several changes and you are not sure about some of them, just open a single ticket for the page review. And please put the document title in the ticket summary.
