Subject Re: Running cqlsh throws "No appropriate python interpreter found."
Date Wed, 06 Nov 2013 10:42:35 GMT
Now I'm experiencing this:

[iwuser@erwin-lab2 bin]$ ./cqlsh

Python CQL driver not installed, or not on PYTHONPATH.
You might try "easy_install cql".

Python: /usr/local/bin/python2.6
Module load path: ['./../lib/',
'/home/iwuser/dsc-cassandra-2.0.2/bin', '/usr/local/bin/python2.6',
'/usr/local/lib/', '/usr/local/lib/python2.6',
'/usr/local/lib/python2.6/plat-linux2', '/usr/local/lib/python2.6/lib-tk',
'/usr/local/lib/python2.6/lib-old', '/usr/local/lib/python2.6/lib-dynload',

*Error: can't decompress data; zlib not available*

Any idea?
