#615 assigned defect

problems finding module zope

Reported by: jerobarraco Owned by: htgoebel
Priority: high Milestone: PyInstaller 3.0
Component: PyInstaller Version: 2.0
Severity: major Keywords:

Description (last modified by htgoebel)

my app depends on ZODB, and uses ZEO, that in turns depends on zope.event and zope.interface, which are two different eggs but use the same namespace.

site-packages /



the file contains :


and contains:

# this is a namespace package
    import pkg_resources
except ImportError:
    import pkgutil
    __path__ = pkgutil.extend_path(__path__, __name__)

i tried to write a hook, but it can't pick ""
i tried using hiddenimports and even tried to set the pathex
obviously the app works correctly when using from source. but when i try to package it (with pyinstaller) it says it can't find zope.event.
"matysek_" from irc recommended me to try modulegraph and file a report.
here's what i've done :

>>> from modulegraph.find_modules import find_modules as fm
>>> mg = fm(['banta/'])
>>> f = open('o.txt', 'w')
>>> for i in mg.flatten(): f.write(str(i))
>>> f.close()

and it finds it

We could try to use modulegraph library for finding dependent modules.

This is apparently making it so that people can't use Twisted with pyinstaller. Is there any known workaround?

  • Milestone changed from PyInstaller 2.1 to PyInstaller 3.0

Pushing to milestone PyInstaller? 3.0 again. Implementing this is complex. Since modulegraph says to support it, wait solving issue #439 should give it for free.
