To list images I run command:
which hangs up forever and after long time exits with message "connection reset by peer".
I have disabled iptables to eliminate firewall issues. No help.
All manuals assume that euca-describe-images should simply run and do not give instruction what to do if it does not.
Following Josh's advice I did:
strace -o edi_output -f -ff euca-describe-images
and then I looked into the output files. It seems that there might be two problems:
- Some euca2ools files are missing - in particular the .eucarc configuration file.
- There are messages about missing python files, like for example "open("/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/gtk-2.0/org.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)" (There are manu more like that).
That's all I know for now.
