Sure thing! This is a common issue, and easily missed. Matt and I are discussing making it part of yt install now.

Yes, I have this issue every time I create a new yt install.

Once you "activate" the yt environment by setting the right env vars, run `pip install readline`. Basically the python readline package isn't installed by default for the yt python environment. Should be fine after that.

Happy hacking,

   I've installed yt on a new linux system and iyt is unable to find

   [taskere@purr ~]$ ~/yt/bin/iyt
   WARNING: Readline services not available on this platform.

   But readline is on this machine and works fine from the normal
   bash prompt. Any ideas?
