I'm trying to setup a Plone buildout for a non-root user "plone".

So far my environment is:

- fresh install of CentOS 4.6 brought up2date

- as root user, ran a modified version of the Plone 3.0.5 Unified Installler
to setup Python 2.4.4 and other required stuff (commented out install of
zope/plone). This installed python in /opt/plone/Python-2.4.4

- as root user, ran "easy_install ZopeSkel" which setup "Best match:
ZopeSkel 1.5.1"

- modified plone user's profile to pickup new version of python

- as plone user, created project buildout with "paster create -t
plone3_buildout centenary"

- as plone user, bootstrap the buildout with "python bootstrap.py"

- as plone user, build the system with "bin/buildout"
this produced the following output and error:
Getting distribution for 'plone.recipe.plone'.
Got plone.recipe.plone 3.0.5.
Getting distribution for 'plone.recipe.distros'.
Got plone.recipe.distros 1.3.
Getting distribution for 'zc.recipe.egg'.
Got zc.recipe.egg 1.0.0.
Getting distribution for 'plone.recipe.zope2install'.
Got plone.recipe.zope2install 1.2.
Getting distribution for 'plone.recipe.zope2instance'.
Got plone.recipe.zope2instance 1.3.
Installing plone.
  Installing plone.

An internal error occured due to a bug in either zc.buildout or in a
recipe being used:

too many values to unpack

any ideas what went wrong?

any help is appreciated

thank you,
