UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 6034: ordinal not in range(128)The solution is to comment out the
config = config.decode('ascii')line in Lib/site-packages/setuptools/
Here's an even more fun one:
File "geopts.py", line 128, in xp2str s = etree.tostring(resultset, method="text") File "lxml.etree.pyx", line 3165, in lxml.etree.tostring (src\lxml\lxml.etree. c:69399) exceptions.TypeError: Type '_ElementStringResult' cannot be serialized.
This says that the XML library's own tostring() function cannot convert one of its own string types to a string. What's especially brilliant about this is that _ElementStringResult inherits from the native string class.
Here is a hacky attempt to manage the problem:
r = resultset if isinstance(r, etree._ElementStringResult): s = r else: s = etree.tostring(r, method="text")
