having trouble getting Fabric to work

so I have this new server running on centos6.6 that I am trying to get fabric to work. In the past, I have another server that I installed fabric on, and it has worked for me since. I do not remember it giving me a problem in the past. Not sure if this is related to my pip-install

# fab --version
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/fabric/", line 24, in <module>
import ssh
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ssh/", line 62, in <module>
from transport import SecurityOptions, Transport
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ssh/", line 33, in <module>
from ssh import util
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ssh/", line 33, in <module>
from ssh.common import *
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ssh/", line 98, in <module>
from Crypto import Random
ImportError: cannot import name Random

There was a problem importing our SSH library (see traceback above).
Please make sure all dependencies are installed and importable.

I am running out of ideas.

The server is running with
Python 2.6.6
I believe I installed

gcc libffi-devel python-devel openssl-devel

sorry if this doesn't make sense, will provide more information if need to

Hi Ray

The most likely answer to your question is you have the wrong crypto module loaded.

I might try this one.
