How do I work around the "TypeError: dist must be a Distribution instance" problem when following the Swift-all-in-one instructions [closed]
I was following the instructions on this page: http://docs.openstack.org/developer/swift/development_saio.html
on a fresh Ubuntu 12.04.3 and all was fine until the line:
cd ~/swift; sudo python setup.py develop; cd -
when I got a lot of messages ending in the error:
TypeError: dist must be a Distribution instance
I googled the error and saw some discussion but nothing has got me over this problem.
