Problem installing pyserial in angstrom distribution

I have download the pyserial installer, this package is supoused to let me work with the serial port, very easy.

After untar and

python import setup
on the python downloaded directory

this is the output:
stardart disutils
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 6, in
from distutils.core import setup
ImportError: No module named distutils.core

so, what should I do, is anyone working with python?


Why not do 'opkg install python-pyserial' as we told you on IRC yesterday?



I didn’t see that answer, and it has worked now, thanks
