Bob is not found at the correct place
Created by: siebenkopf
When using the latest xbob.buildout version, we get an issue with using Bob other than from the default installation. The problem description is as follows:
- create a buildout.cfg without bob as an egg
- write your prefix, e.g. as: prefixes = /idiap/group/torch5spro/releases/bob-1.1.2/install/linux-x86_64-release/lib
- run bin/buildout
And you will end up with bob version 1.1.1 (as the one installed globally): $ bin/python
import bob bob.version 1.1.1
The problem seems to be that the prefixes is added at the end of the import list. A work-around is to add bob as the first entry in the buildout.cfg eggs list. Only then, the correct path of bob is the first entry.
- This problem seems not to occur when you use the mr.developer extension.
- Even if you specify that you want to get bob in version 1.1.2, you will end up with 1.1.1.
Without note 2, I would consider this as an inconvenience, but like that this is a more severe bug.
@André: After the discussion in this evening, I assigned you to solve it. Please feel free to re-distribute :)
