First time install issues


#1

Hi Guys,

I am trying to install Senaite Lims on Ubuntu.
Once I add the egg to the buildout.cfg and run bin/buildout i am getting the following error:
Error: Couldn’t find a distribution for ‘senaite.lims’

What does this error mean?

Hi @BrewCruBrewingLabs,

That’s wired… The PyPi egg is there: https://pypi.org/project/senaite.lims/

I am sharing my buildout:

############################################
# Eggs
# ----
# Add an indented line to the eggs section for any Python
# eggs or packages you wish to include in your Plone instance.
#
# Note that versions may be specified here or in the [versions]
# section below. You should always specify versions that you know
# are compatible with the Plone release and at an acceptable
# development level.
#
# If you update to a later version of Plone, remove the hotfix.
#
eggs =
    Plone
    Pillow
    senaite.lims

Make sure the computer or virtual machine has internet connection.

Try running the Plone Unified installer first, once that is
successful, add the egg. You might be missing prerequisite
packages?


#4

I ended up adding the index link just above the eggs section as recommended in the glitter chat and that worked perfectly.
Thank you guys!!!

Hi everyone!
I’m too trying to install senaite (in Plone 4.3.18) in ubuntu too (xubuntu 16.04 32 bits), but on the process I get this error:

Couldn't find index page for 'z3c.jbot' (maybe misspelled?)
While:
  Installing instance.
  Getting distribution for 'z3c.jbot'.
Error: Couldn't find a distribution for 'z3c.jbot'.

what I’m doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!!
Regards!

@jbonomo1982 just try running it again, sometimes the buildout doesn’t find a file and I have no idea why.
