I am trying to install python 3.2, and to get setuptools and pip in python 3.2. Everything seems to work right in python 2.7. However when I try to install setuptools using this code
wget https://bootstrap.pypa.io/ez_setup.py -O - | sudo python3.2 I get the following error
Extracting in /tmp/tmpcwnav_ Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 332, in <module> File "<stdin>", line 329, in main File "<stdin>", line 51, in _install File "/usr/local/lib/python3.2/contextlib.py", line 28, in __enter__ return next(self.gen) File "<stdin>", line 101, in archive_context File "/usr/local/lib/python3.2/zipfile.py", line 1004, in extractall self.extract(zipinfo, path, pwd) File "/usr/local/lib/python3.2/zipfile.py", line 992, in extract return self._extract_member(member, path, pwd) File "/usr/local/lib/python3.2/zipfile.py", line 1035, in _extract_member source = self.open(member, pwd=pwd) File "/usr/local/lib/python3.2/zipfile.py", line 978, in open close_fileobj=not self._filePassed) File "/usr/local/lib/python3.2/zipfile.py", line 487, in __init__ self._decompressor = zlib.decompressobj(-15) AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'decompressobj'
Based on some googling, it looks like I am getting the problem because zlib has not been installed. I do not have this problem when trying to install setuptools for python 2.7. I went into python 3.2 and tried to import zlib and got an error message when I tried that. I also tried to do
sudo apt-get install zlib and got the error message
E: Unable to locate package zlib. I did not get error messages when I tried
sudo apt-get install zlib1g or sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev` I really have no idea what's going on. How do I get zlib for python 3.2 (or otherwise fix this problem?)
