Jenkins build fails on (at least) Amazon Linux

On (at least) Amazon Linux, the virtualenv tool configures python with the following sys.path directories:

  • ''
  • '${PYTHON_ENV}/local/lib64/python2.7/site-packages'
  • '${PYTHON_ENV}/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages'
  • '${PYTHON_ENV}/lib64/python2.7'
  • '${PYTHON_ENV}/lib/python2.7'
  • '${PYTHON_ENV}/lib64/python2.7/site-packages'
  • '${PYTHON_ENV}/lib/python2.7/site-packages'
  • '${PYTHON_ENV}/lib64/python2.7/lib-dynload'
  • '${PYTHON_ENV}/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages'
  • '${PYTHON_ENV}/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages'
  • '${PYTHON_ENV}/lib/python2.7/dist-packages'
  • '/usr/lib64/python2.7'
  • '/usr/lib/python2.7'

However, running pip install PyYAML in that same virtualenv will install the yaml module into the ${PYTHON_ENV}/lib64/python2.7/dist-packages directory, which is not on the search path.

For now, I am working around the problem by creating dist-packages.pth files as follows:

find ${PYTHON_ENV} -type d -name dist-packages -exec sh -c "echo dist-packages > {}.pth" ';'

I have created a pull-request and issue.

I will also be filing a bug-report against virtualenv as soon as I create a self-contained script illustrating the problem.

I think we should keep the discussion only on github, thanks :slight_smile:

When I opened a pull-request, github suggested that I read the contributor guidelines, which start with:

Please post all questions and issues first on before opening a Github Issue.

The Contributing to Beats document likewise starts with:

If you have a bugfix or new feature that you would like to contribute, please start by opening a topic on the forums.

So I was just posting here by direction. Sorry if my interpretation of the guidelines caused offense.

Don't worry, everything is fine! Thanks for pushing it.
