Installing vitrualenv and pip on the HPCVL
|This page was developed by the Queen's University Applied Sustainability Research Group.|
This article assumes you have a properly installed version of Python. If you're using the HPCVL and haven't installed your own version, then chances are you're using their broken one. I wrote some instructions for getting your own installation of python going on the HPCVL here.
 Get virtualenv
Copy the link to the source from the pypi page. At the time of writing it's at version 0.8. Here's the link I found to the source:
Log into the HPCVL create a working directory
mkdir ve-working cd ve-working
gunzip virtualenv-1.7.2.tar.gz tar xf virtualenv-1.7.2.tar
cd virtualenv-1.7.2 python setup.py install
 Test It
cd ~/ virtualenv myenv
I got an error. Damn.
To be continued.
