Hi Eric,

Yup, I've run into this recently. You need to apt-get install libssl-dev and then rm $YT_DEST/src/python/done and rerun the install script.

I'm doing this from memory, so let me know if I got the details wrong. I'll correct when I'm in front of my computer...

Hope this helps,

Has anyone seen this error after clean install of yt on ubuntu?  I went through lists online to see what is going on, and it appears to be a compile of python without ssl support.  I'm not sure how to fix it however.  This is using the mercurial build from the install script.

$hg pull
abort: Python SSL support not found

Is it an Ubuntu problem?  Or do I need to rebuild python from the install script with some other flags?
