which version of openstack are you trying to install? which documentation are you using to install it?

Please check you have the python prerequisites, did you install virtualenv? sudo easy_install virtualenv

Arthur, he's trying to setup horizon in development mode.

its not properly installed.. you should update python and do yum update on your server. Try to reinstall horizon once these update completed.

I want to install 2 new modules in Horizon but have no clue how it installs in its virtualenv.

I mentioned pisa >= 3.0.33 and reportlab >= 2.5 in requirements.txt file, ran ./ and ./, but still do not get these installed in its virtualenv.

As a result, when I do ./, I get " ImportError: No module named ho.pisa"

Please suggest me if I am going wrong somewhere or how to proceed with this.

Thanks in advance.
