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 readline. When I start it says:

[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?
