Python nova Client for Openstack
Hey LQusers

I'm having an issue with install an application called Nova client for Openstack. It's python based but it failed to install with a few errors for example, of course the error code is much longer:

PHP Code:

File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/distutils/"line 972in run_command


File "<string>"line 13in replacement_run

"/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/setuptools/command/"line 379in write_pkg_info


File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/distutils/"line 1106in write_pkg_info


File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/distutils/"line 1118in write_pkg_file


File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/distutils/"line 1145in _write_field

.write('%s: %s\n' % (nameself._encode_field(value)))

File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/distutils/"line 1154in _encode_field

if isinstance(valueunicode):

RuntimeErrormaximum recursion depth exceeded while calling a Python object 

The Install guide is here;

Can anyone suggest what to do to get this installed?

Many thanks!!

Do you have all the dependencies like setuptools ? Did you run the installation under sudo as the instructions mention ?

Can you post the commands you ran to get to that point?
