Hi Adam,

Glad to hear you've resolved the issue. To be clear, you were trying to
install StarCluster on an Amazon instance launched with the
AMI-0af31963, correct? Just for drill, did you try simply running "sudo
easy_install StarCluster"? In general this *should* pull in all
dependencies including pycrypto (a dependency of paramiko) from PYPI and
compile/install the necessary modules. Of course, your approach of
apt-get'ing or compiling/installing libraries by hand will work,
however, easy_install or pip make it a much easier process most of the time.

With that said, I just tried a fresh install in an empty virtual
environment of StarCluster from PYPI using easy_install and it's failing
because of a bug in the new pycrypto-2.4 package that was released a few
days ago. I'm going to temporarily add pycrypto==2.3 to StarCluster's to prevent issues for users in the next 0.92.1 release which
should be out soon. Note that StarCluster is more than likely compatible
with pycrypto-2.4 once it's installed (I haven't tested it yet...),
however, the errors when installing pycrypto-2.4 from easy install/PYPI
is a show stopper for now. Anyway thanks for reporting pycrypto related
issues which brought all this up.

One last tip, in general you can use easy_install to install a specific
version of pycrypto or any package on PYPI:

$ easy_install pycrypto==2.3

Just to be clear

and an SC installation halt. I have resolved the glitch this morning by
directly downloading, building, and installing 'pycrypto-2.4' instead of
using apt-get. The SC installation then executed with no error returns.
For some reason I was thinking that SC needed pycrypto v2.1 . . . . but
in the light of day . . . .
