Error while installing bench and frappe-bench

Following instructions provided at : https://github.com/frappe/bench#setting-up-erpnext
I installed all the prerequisites one by one seperately and tried to install bench.
While installing bench (centos 6.5) I get the following error:


Installing collected packages: bench
  Running setup.py develop for bench

    file bench.py (for module bench) not found

Creating /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/bench.egg-link (link to .)
    Adding bench 0.1 to easy-install.pth file
    Installing bench script to /usr/bin

    Installed /home/frappe/bench-repo
Successfully installed bench
Cleaning up...


Since it still says bench successfully installed I went forward and run: bench init frappe-bench

I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/bench", line 9, in <module>
    load_entry_point('bench==0.1', 'console_scripts', 'bench')()
  File "build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/pkg_resources.py", line 357, in load_entry_point
  File "build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/pkg_resources.py", line 2394, in load_entry_point
  File "build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/pkg_resources.py", line 2108, in load
ImportError: No module named bench.cli

Was my bench installed succesfully? Do i need to run the "bench init frappe-bench" command as root or frappe. I did as frappe.

I am not able to reproduce this error all time (little random). The
fix for it is

pip uninstall bench
pip install -e /home/frappe/bench-repo

Basically install it again, and it runs fine.

Nope, nothing happened. You’ll have to init again and as frappe.

That is the problem. bench is package (dir with init.py file),
there is really no bench.py. The entry point is bench.cli

Can you try uninstall it and then installing it using the method below,

cd /home/frappe/bench-repo
python setup.py develop #as root

Thanks,

Pratik,

Thank you very much for your time. You guys are great.

I tried your options but missing file (bench.py) error was always there. But I went forward and init the frappe. Earlier my bench init error was due to permission issue (frappe user did not had permission), I looked in your old frappe-bench install scripts and I found out that we need to update sudoers file and provide frappe with admin rights (echo "erpnext ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/supervisorctl restart frappe\:" > /etc/sudoers.d/erpnext), this line is missing in new install scripts. 

Now I do have frappe running but not sure if that error might create some functionality issues. I hope not.

That is the problem. bench is package (dir with __init__.py file),
there is really no bench.py. The entry point is bench.cli

Can you try uninstall it and then installing it using the method below,

```
cd /home/frappe/bench-repo

Yes, that is a warning from distutils, you can ignore it.

Earlier my bench init error was due to
permission issue (frappe user did not had permission), I looked in your old
frappe-bench install scripts and I found out that we need to update sudoers
file and provide frappe with admin rights (echo “erpnext ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:
/usr/bin/supervisorctl restart frappe:” > /etc/sudoers.d/erpnext), this
line is missing in new install scripts.

That is replaced by a new command in the bench, bench setup sudoers
but if you’ve added it manually, it’s fine, just replace erpnext with
frappe

Now I do have frappe running but not sure if that error might create some
functionality issues. I hope not.

Nope, all seems to have run correctly.

Thanks,
