I have a CentOS 6 (minimum install or netinstall, I can't remember which) on a virtual machine. I'm trying to install Plone 4.2.4 on it for testing purposes. I have installed all the required dependencies, or at leat I think so.
I run the Plone Unified Installer (I use the
--static-lxml option because Plone requires a libxml2 version not present on CentOS)
./install.sh --static-lxml standalone
I get the following error:
Stand-Alone Zope Instance selected Detailed installation log being written to /root/plone/Plone-4.2.4-UnifiedInstaller/install.log Root install method chosen. Will install for use by system user plone Installing Plone 4.2.4 at /usr/local/Plone User 'plone' already exists. No need to create it. Skipping libjpeg build Skipping readline build Installing Python-2.7.3. This takes a while... Install of Python-2.7.3 has failed. Installation has failed. See the detailed installation log at /root/plone/Plone-4.2.4-UnifiedInstaller/install.log to determine the cause.
I installed Pythonbrew to try to install Python 2.73 using it. I can sucessfuly install Pythonbrew, but when I run
pythonbrew install 2.7.3 I get the following error:
[test@plonemachine root]$ pythonbrew install 2.7.3 Use the previously fetched /home/test/.pythonbrew/dists/Python-2.7.3.tgz Extracting Python-2.7.3.tgz into /home/test/.pythonbrew/build/Python-2.7.3 This could take a while. You can run the following command on another shell to track the status: tail -f "/home/test/.pythonbrew/log/build.log" Patching Python-2.7.3 Installing Python-2.7.3 into /home/test/.pythonbrew/pythons/Python-2.7.3 ERROR: Failed to install Python-2.7.3. See /home/test/.pythonbrew/log/build.log to see why.
Here's the Pythonbrew build log. It's almost identical to the Plone install log(!), leading me to believe the problem lies somewhere else.
