Q: I’m getting
entry_point errors when I try to run Curator. What am I doing wrong?edit
A: You likely need to upgrade
If you are still unable to install, or get strange errors about dependencies you
know you’ve installed, or messages mentioning
entry_point, you may need to
setuptools package. This is especially common with RHEL and
CentOS installs, and their variants, as they depend on Python 2.6.
If you can run
pip install -U setuptools, it should correct the problem.
You may also be able to download and install manually:
wget https://pypi.python.org/packages/source/s/setuptools/setuptools-15.1.tar.gz -O setuptools-15.1.tar.gz
pip install setuptools-15.1.tar.gz
Any dependencies this version of setuptools may require will have to be manually acquired and installed for your platform.
