I am really hoping someone can help me as I have spent at-least 15 hours trying to fix this problem. I have been given a task by a potential employer and my solution is to use graphite/carbon/collected. I am trying to run and install carbon / graphite 0.9.12 but I simply can't get carbon to start. Every time I try and start carbon I end up with the following error.

I don't really know python so would appreciate any help you can provide.

/etc/rc0.d/K20carbon-cache -> ../init.d/carbon-cache
/etc/rc1.d/K20carbon-cache -> ../init.d/carbon-cache
/etc/rc6.d/K20carbon-cache -> ../init.d/carbon-cache
/etc/rc2.d/S20carbon-cache -> ../init.d/carbon-cache
/etc/rc3.d/S20carbon-cache -> ../init.d/carbon-cache
/etc/rc4.d/S20carbon-cache -> ../init.d/carbon-cache
/etc/rc5.d/S20carbon-cache -> ../init.d/carbon-cache
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/graphite/bin/carbon-cache.py", line 28, in <module>
