Description Thomas Capricelli 2019-02-25 11:16:17 UTC
If i install bpython and starts it, i have the following error:

% bpython
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python-exec/python2.7/bpython", line 6, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3191, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3175, in _call_aside
    f(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3204, in _initialize_master_working_set
    working_set = WorkingSet._build_master()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 583, in _build_master
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 900, in require
    needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 786, in resolve
    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'typing' distribution was not found and is required by curtsies

I can manually install the 'typing' by doing:
emerge -1 dev-python/typing

Then everything works well:

% bpython
bpython version 0.17.1 on top of Python 2.7.15 /usr/bin/python2.7
