Description Axel Ulrich 2017-11-08 01:07:27 UTC
Description of problem:
On a system with Python2.7 and Python2.6, with Python2.7 being the default, site-packages from GlusterFS and Python dependency prettytable are installed into Python2.6 when install via rpm packages.  When running gluster commands that depend on those they are not found.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GlusterFS 3.12

$ sudo gluster-mountbroker setup /var/mountbroker-root geogroup
this command comes back with an error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/gluster-mountbroker", line 5, in <module>
    from gluster.cliutils import (execute, Cmd, node_output_ok,
ImportError: No module named gluster.cliutils

Fix without changing Python default to 2.6:
$ sudo cp -r /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/* /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/
$ sudo yum install python27-prettytable

Because the gluster documentation states support for Python2.6 'or higher', wouldn't a better approach of the install be to install packages/dependencies into all Python2.6 or higher versions on the system at the time of install? I wonder actually what happens on a system with only Python2.7 at the time of install.
