tgsetup.py fails with AttributeError when .pydistutils.cfg has find_link value

Reported by: aji Owned by: faide
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.0.x bugfix
Component: TurboGears Version: 1.0.8
Severity: normal Keywords: tgsetup.py AttributeError


If my system has a ~/.pydistutils.cfg file with a find_links attribute in the [easy_install] section, then tgsetup.py will fail:

$ sudo python tgsetup.py
TurboGears Installer
Beginning setuptools/EasyInstall installation and TurboGears download

Traceback (most recent call last):

AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'append'

The existing find_links value is a string, but tgsetup.py assumes that it is a list if it exists.

This patch will fix the error:

$ diff tgsetup.py.orig tgsetup.py
>             # this elif fixes the AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'append' error
>             elif isinstance(self.find_links, (str, unicode)):
>                 # encase string in list
>                 self.find_links = [self.find_links]
