My main issue is that httplib module of python is missing HTTPSConnection.
When I try to use pip to install fabric using pip it gives me this error: 'module' object has no attribute 'HTTPSConnection'
I used easy_install and it worked for the most part but it also threw an error:
Download error: unknown url type: https -- Some packages may not be found!
This was my procedure for installing python2.7
sudo apt-get install build-essential sudo apt-get install libreadline-dev libncursesw5-dev libssl-dev libsqlite3-dev tk-dev libgdbm-dev libc6-dev libbz2-dev wget http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.7.5/Python-2.7.5.tgz tar –xvf Python-2.7.5.tgz cd Python-2.7.5 ./configure --enable-shared --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc make sudo make altinstall
