<rekado>I wonder if I'm doing something wrong, but Python setuptools is weird. Can't seem to fix pbtranscript-tofu and that I need to replace setuptools with distutils.core in other packages is troubling.
<civodul>what's the problem with pbtranscript-tofu?
<rekado>I get this unhelpful error: "AttributeError: Extension instance has no attribute '_convert_pyx_sources_to_lang'"
<sneek>tyrion-mx, mark_weaver says: your home directory is probably on the root partition, obscured by the mounted filesystem. you should copy the dot files from your home directory as created by guix. you can get to your hidden home directory by bind-mounting the root filesystem somewhere else, using a command like "mount --bind / /rootfs"
<rekado>pbtranscript-tofu can be built with python2-setuptools at version 12.1 (I added a variant locally).
<rekado>I'll try to identify with which version number things broke.
<rekado>setuptools 17.1.1 is the last working version; 18.0 is the first to break. It's not fixed in 18.4 (latest release).
