Hi Dave,

I made changes giving the suggestions of Ross, I got a different error and
that gave me insight as to what was going on.  I uploaded new xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
     <package name="requests" version="1.2.3">
         <install version="1.0">
                 <action type="shell_command">export
                 python install --home $INSTALL_DIR
--install-scripts $INSTALL_DIR/bin</action>
                 <action type="set_environment">
                     <environment_variable name="PYTHONPATH"
                     <environment_variable name="PATH"


And this worked for me.   I'm thinking you may have downloaded after I
made the changes.

I tried installing the ingtest repository on a local instance of Galaxy,
and the requests python module installed without errors. Which revision
of Galaxy are you trying to install this repository into, and what kind
of environment are you running on that system?

Try moving the <action

line so it's the one before
<action type="shell_command">python install --home $INSTALL_DIR
--install-scripts $INSTALL_DIR/bin</action>

I think I've been bitten by this - it seems download_by_url changes the
current path but only temporarily so you need to run immediately
as the next step?
If this works, please confirm to the entire list - I'm sending this to you
just in case I'm full of it :)

I've just created a repository  in the sandbox and have been trying to
test the installation of  a dependency my tool needs.  The tool needs the
python module "requests"  and I've written code. I get an error:
python: can't open file '': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

I've modeled my code on examples I've found in the tool shed.   I've
replaced the requests module with other python  modules and these are
installed ok.   I can also  download and  manually install requests with
"python install"

Any suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong?
