Hmmm, that's odd. Glad you got it working though. I just tried creating a new empty virtual environment and ran 'pip install StarCluster' and it pulled in boto 2.0b4 correctly so I'm not sure what the issue might have been. Must have been a random fluke with pypi or something. Let me know if you run into this again...

Hi Justin,

Thanks for the pointer... I used 'pip install StarCluster' and version 'boto 2.0b3' was installed. It seems like the default version of boto that is in installed via pypi is 2.0b3.

After downloading the 'boto 2.0b4' tarball and installing it manually via 'python install' I was able to start up a cluster.

Hi Nolan,

I suspect this might be a version mismatch for boto. StarCluster 0.92rc2 requires boto 2.0b4. You can check the currently installed boto version using:

$ python -c 'import boto; print boto.Version'

If this is the case, running 'easy_install StarCluster' or, if you downloaded manually, 'python install' should pull in the required boto version assuming you have setuptools installed.
