Hi Team,


Trouble creating virtual environment for Zope server installation in linux environment

1) We are facing trouble installing zope with virtual environment when executed we are facing the below error
when executing the shown command

 virtualenv --no-site-packages Zope
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/bin/virtualenv", line 5, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 3084, in <module>
    @_call_aside
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 3070, in _call_aside
    f(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 3097, in _initialize_master_working_set
    working_set = WorkingSet._build_master()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 651, in _build_master
    ws.require(__requires__)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 952, in require
    needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 839, in resolve
    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'virtualenv==20.0.21' distribution was not found and is required by the application


2) We were unable to install virtualenv first with easy_install so we did the following

3) Installed pip package with yum instal python-pip

4) Downaload virtualenv using pip command. Output is shown below

 /bin/python -m pip install --user virtualenv

You are using pip version 8.1.2, however version 20.1.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.

5) Then we installed virtualenv using easy_install and it did not work and gave below error

Hi Saloni,

it's probably something "stupid". I'll have to read everything very closely.

But before I do so, what platform are you using?
I assume it's not a RHEL7 or 8 (or compatible like CentOS)?

And please have a look at $BICSUITEHOME/lib/zope-pre.script
It is the pre-install script that is used by my rpms and it works pretty well on bothe RHEL7 and 8.
Note that in case of RHEL8 not virtualenv but virtualenv-2 is used (Zope still runs with python2; people are working on a port to python3 but that's not as stable as we would like to).

Best regards,

Ronald

... not as stable *yet* as we would like to...

I'm not blaming any of the people doing this magnificent and difficult work!
On the contrary, I really appreciate their huge efforts!

Hi Ronald,

The issue has been resolved.

We have faced a major issue while creating the python virtual environment for a Zope Server , we followed couple of links which helped us installed Virtual env “virtualenv 20.0.21” .Still no luck. After checking  we have observed there it was “virtualenv 16.0.0” was present.

Then we installed it and the issue is resolved now.

Thank you,
Saloni

Hi Saloni,

I'm glad you've found the culprit. I would have had a hard time finding that remotely.
Thank you for the feedback!

Best regards,

Ronald
