[Buildbot-devel] "no script named 'buildbot'"

Update:  The problem was that the buildmaster user could not see the
contents of /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/buildbot-0.8.1-py2.4.egg/,
or the eggs for any of buildbot's dependencies.


That is to say, the eggs for Twisted, Zope.Interface, PySqlite, or
simplejson.  Those last two have me a bit confused, as BuildBot doesn't
claim to depend on them.

I'm through my dependency issues and connection issues with the slave
machines, and now I'm trying to create a build master for our real
source tree.  (There was a 'fooproject' build master set up for play


On the master machine, I run `buildbot create-master -r projectname`,
and I receive:


Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/usr/bin/buildbot", line 5, in ?

    pkg_resources.run_script('buildbot==0.8.1', 'buildbot')

  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 407, in

    self.require(requires)[0].run_script(script_name, ns)

  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 1078,
in run_script

    raise ResolutionError("No script named %r" % script_name)

pkg_resources.ResolutionError: No script named 'buildbot'


Talking to the tech who set up the 'fooproject' play area, when he
encountered this problem he switched to root and "never went back".
What could be missing from my buildmaster account's permissions?
