I want to install the dateutil module to work with Python 3.1. I didn't get very far through this installation however before I was advised that I also needed to install setuptools. I've tried to do this using the commands given below, but am not having any success.
$ tar -xzvf distribute-0.6.19.tar.gz
$ cd distribute-0.6.19
$ python setup.py install I think the problem might be to do with the fact that on my computer Python 3.1 is not the default version. So my question is how do I point the version of setuptools that I've downloaded in the direction of Python 3.1 (residing in /usr/local/bin) as opposed to at Python 2.6 (residing in /usr/bin)?
