Thanks, posted that and headed out.. realized that I hadn’t checked if there were any pre-req missing. But, I think we could improve the error message here.. to indicate what’s missing
But that did solve it 🙂
Hm, I was going to suggest cherry-picking into Pex's vendor of packaging to remove this dependency on distutils, but
was only added in Python 3.2+ So Pants would need to drop Py27 support. cc @enough-analyst-54434
Wouldn't help. Next issue you'd hit is a lack of
-m venv
support unless you installed
on some of the Debian flavors. Can't remember which.
