Dependencies are bundled with setuptools again, so no hacks during first install are needed.

@travnick: You can fix this by:

sudo curl -o /opt/pypy3/lib-python/3/

See my older comment how to install pypy-setuptools for the first time.

@travnick: TLS support is broken in older pypy3 versions and already fixed in the latest pypy3 5.7.0. See

muesio: All the dependencies are needed for the packages to work.

Setuptools need packaging and appdir (they are used in code), packaging and appdir needs setuptools during build (they are used in

What's the rationale behind the cyclic dependencies?

dundee commented on 2017-02-01 22:46


Please note, that setuptools do not include their dependecies in vendor dir anymore. FIRST installation of setuptools is therefore little bit complicated, because there are cyclic dependencies.

You need to do:
1. install setuptools manually via ensurepip:

# sudo pypy -m ensurepip
# sudo pypy3 -m ensurepip

If you get error message "Ignoring ensurepip failure: pip 8.1.2 requires SSL/TLS", there is easy hack/fix:
sudo curl -o /opt/pypy3/lib-python/3/

2. install all setuptools dependencies (pypy-six, pypy-pyparsing, pypy-packaging, pypy-appdirs)

You will have to edit the PKGBUILD and remove dependency on pypy-setuptools during this first install.

3. install pypy-setuptools with --force (because ensurepip installed files on same paths)

I don't use pypy anymore, and maintaining against such a fast pace project is indeed a burden for me. I'm going to drop it and feel free to adopt it. For interested, you can find PKGBUILD template at
