[Setup] buildout problem

I'm currently reading Martin Aspeli's book "Professional Plone
Development". However, I got stuck while trying to use buildout. After
searching various forums, mailing lists and googling most of this day
without any success, I feel quite lost. I hope someone can help me out
I get this error while running ./bin/buildout -v
Installing 'zc.buildout', 'setuptools'.
We have the best distribution that satisfies 'zc.buildout'.
Picked: zc.buildout = 1.0.0b31
We have the best distribution that satisfies 'setuptools'.
Picked: setuptools = 0.6c7
We have no distributions for plone.recipe.plone that satisfies
After asking my question at #plone, it became clear that something must
be wrong with my environment, since my buildout.cfg seemed to be fine
for someone else. However I really can't find my mistake. Anyway, these
are the things I did:
- Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon
- Python 2.5.1 and Python 2.4.4 (including dev packages) installed
- PIL installed
- elementtree installed
$ cd ~
$ wget http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist/ez_setup.py
$ sudo python2.4 ez_setup.py
$ sudo easy_install ZopeSkel
$ paster create -t plone3_buildout optilux
$ cd optilux
I added the following line to the buildout.cfg in the [buildout] section
to make sure I'm using python 2.4 (as mentioned in the README.txt):
executable = /usr/bin/python2.4
And entered the following commands:
$ python2.4 bootstrap.py
$ ./bin/buildout -v
Which produced the output mentioned above.
I tried various things like reinstalling the prerequisites and doing
everything all over again. But without luck. As I mentioned, the
buildout.cfg seems to be fine, so I'm kinda running out of ideas...
