So some time during week 4 of the project I had some down time, and I decided to learn how euca2ools worked. Simple command-line tools yet still very powerful as well. However recently we run to some problems with the version mismatches; so here it goes: “how to install everything from source with the latest versions”:

Very easy to install from source:
NOTE: make sure to remove older versions of the software.

Download newest boto: https://github.com/downloads/boto/boto/boto-2.3.0.tar.gz

cd /download/location
tar zxvf boto-2.3.0n.tar.gz
cd boto-2.3.0
sudo python setup.py install

Download newest M2Crypto: http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/M/M2Crypto/M2Crypto-0.21.1.tar.gz

cd /download/location 
tar zxvf M2Crypto-0.21.1.tar.gz 
cd M2Crypto-0.21.1 
sudo python setup.py install

Download euca2ools from: https://github.com/eucalyptus/euca2ools

cd /download/location
cd euca2ools
sudo make

And that should be it.
