I am attempting to install pip on RHEL.
When I run:
[root@somewhere ~]# python get-pip.py Traceback (most recent call last): File "get-pip.py", line 20204, in <module> main() File "get-pip.py", line 152, in main bootstrap(tmpdir=tmpdir) File "get-pip.py", line 82, in bootstrap import pip File "/tmp/tmpydnX0u/pip.zip/pip/__init__.py", line 15, in <module> File "/tmp/tmpydnX0u/pip.zip/pip/vcs/mercurial.py", line 11, in <module> File "/tmp/tmpydnX0u/pip.zip/pip/download.py", line 30, in <module> File "/tmp/tmpydnX0u/pip.zip/pip/_vendor/__init__.py", line 81, in load_module ImportError: No module named 'pip._vendor.requests'
It seems this error was caused by OpenSSL not being installed when python was installed. I have now installed OpenSSL, and want to re-compile python so that PIP will work.
It seems I'm supposed to go:
./configure make make install
from the python source folder, which in my case I think is /usr/local/lib/python2.7 (?) (It's certainly full of lots of *.py files)
However, I don't have a ./configure file in this folder (and can't find one anywhere else.)
How can I tell if I have what I need to do the re-compile?
