I was trying to install the galaxy on my laptop and run into the following

Some eggs are out of date, attempting to fetch...
Warning: MarkupSafe (a dependent egg of Mako) cannot be fetched
Warning: pycrypto (a dependent egg of Fabric) cannot be fetched
Warning: simplejson (a dependent egg of WebHelpers) cannot be fetched
Fetched http://eggs.galaxyproject.org/ssh/ssh-1.7.14-py2.7.egg
One of Galaxy's managed eggs depends on something which is missing, this is
almost certainly a bug in the egg distribution.
Dependency "ssh" requires "pycrypto>=2.1,!=2.4"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./scripts/fetch_eggs.py", line 37, in <module>
    c.resolve() # Only fetch eggs required by the config
line 345, in resolve
line 168, in resolve
    dists = pkg_resources.working_set.resolve( (
self.distribution.as_requirement(), ), env, self.fetch )
  File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/pkg_resources.py", line 569, in resolve
    raise VersionConflict(dist,req) # XXX put more info here
pkg_resources.VersionConflict: (ssh 1.7.14
Fetch failed.

Because I have numpy installed which seems to be conflict to galaxy, so I
was install with virtual python environment (virtualenv), and also tried
the protection environment provided in the galaxy instruction page (
and both came across the same error as indicated above.

Some information you may be interested:
(GalaxyENV)yinan@Macbook galaxy-dist$ python -V
Python 2.7.3
(GalaxyENV)yinan@Macbook galaxy-dist$ python scripts/get_platforms.py

It will be great if you can help me out.
