I'm trying to use pip to install the package carbon, a package related to statistics collection. When I run pip install carbon, it looks like everything works. However, pip is unconvinced that the package is actually installed. (This ultimately causes trouble because I'm using Puppet, and have a rule to install carbon using pip, and when puppet asks pip "is this package installed?" it says "no" and it reinstalls it again.)

How do I figure out what's preventing pip from recognizing the success of this installation?

Here is the output of the regular install:

I've come across the same problem (installing on OSX, not with puppet), it appears to be the same as on this discussion on the puppet-users mailing list (and this workaround on the carbon github repo).

In my case the solution was to set PYTHONPATH to include /opt/graphite/lib and /opt/graphite/webapp:

export PYTHONPATH=/opt/graphite/lib:/opt/graphite/webapp

Then the installation process completes successfully and pip list shows carbon installed.

I don't know if you're still having this problem, but I had the same thing yesterday. Here's how I got around this with puppet:

$graphite_version = '0.9.9'

exec {
  'install-carbon':
    command => "pip install carbon==${graphite_version}",
    creates => "/opt/graphite/lib/carbon-${graphite_version}-py2.6.egg-info";

  'install-graphite-web':
    command => "pip install graphite-web==${graphite_version}",
    creates => "/opt/graphite/webapp/graphite_web-${graphite_version}-py2.6.egg-info";
}

It doesn't solve the problem entirely (carbon and graphite not properly registering as installed with pip), but it does mean that your puppet run doesn't keep re-installing them.

I hope this helps,

Daz
