After install Python 3.0 r64319 on my Linux system, running 2to3 given
the below error:

$ 2to3
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/2to3", line 5, in <module>

Collin, how does this look?

#!/usr/bin/env python
from lib2to3 import refactor
import sys
import os

fixers = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(refactor.__file__), "fixes")

The suggested fix succeeds but then the next problem occurs

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/2to3", line 6, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.0/lib2to3/", line 81, in main
rt = RefactoringTool(fixer_dir, options)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.0/lib2to3/", line 160, in 
self.pre_order, self.post_order = self.get_fixers()
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.0/lib2to3/", line 185, in 
mod = __import__(fixer_pkg + ".fix_" + fix_name, {}, {}, ["*"])
ValueError: Empty module name

Do what Benjamin Peterson suggested and also edit get_fixers(self) in so fixer_pkg is initialized like this:

fixer_pkg = os.path.relpath(self.fixer_dir,
os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), '..'))
fixer_pkg = fixer_pkg.replace(os.path.sep, ".")

This works for me.

Here is the patch (against both current svn and beta 1).
msg68471 - (view) Author: Georgij Kondratjev (orivej) Date: 2008-06-20 20:17
After uploading the patch I noticed

-#!/usr/bin/env python

in it.
They just should be dropped.

The patch looks good, but I'm going to let Collin deal with it because
I'm not sure if he wants to maintain backwards compatibility with older
version. (os.path.relpath was introduced in 2.6)

This patch seems to work, but

when invoked it tries to write to /usr/local/lib/python3.0/lib2to3
( I get 
root: Writing failed:[Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/local/lib/

I hope this will be handled during install in future.

Furthermore, as a test, I copied to
and ran 2to3 on

Here I get
RefactoringTool: Can't parse ParseError: bad input: type=22, 
value='=', context=('', (67, 71))

This error message is a bit terse for someone not knowing the details
of 2to3

Thanks for the patch,

> when invoked it tries to write to /usr/local/lib/python3.0/lib2to3

2to3 always worked like this. I always had to run it as root. Seems
weird for me too.

> Furthermore, as a test, I copied to
and ran 2to3 on

It seems to be a bug with 2to3 processing

I think we'll defer this as a blocker.  It would be good to get 2to3
working right for the betas, but I don't think it should hold up beta2.

Installation of PatternGrammar pickle is now fixed in r65368 and r65369.

HWJ, please don't report multiple problems in a single tracker issue;
instead, create separate tracker issues for independent problems.

I tried the patch and it works well. Thanks Georgij! So, why the patch
havn't merged into SVN?
msg71191 - (view) Author: Benjamin Peterson (benjamin.peterson) * (Python committer) Date: 2008-08-15 23:59
I don't like the patch because it constricts possible fixer dirs. IMO, needs some refactoring its self in order to separate command
line logic from application logic.

I reported the same bug with another patch: #3553. I used __import__ 
and module.__file__ attribute (and not realpath).
msg71438 - (view) Author: Benjamin Peterson (benjamin.peterson) * (Python committer) Date: 2008-08-19 16:09
Fixed in r65853. Hopefully we can do the real refactoring fix after the
