installing pylint is a little more complicated then necessary because it doesn’t specify it’s requirements for easy_install and it also doesn’t list download locations for logilab-common and logilab-astng in it’s cheeshop record

in your workingenv:
easy_install pylint

then switch to the tmp directory in your workingenv, and download the two packages you need:

then unpack them and install them:
tar -xzvf logilab-common-0.21.1.tar.gz
cd logilab-common-0.21.1
python install
cd ..
tar -xzvf logilab-astng-0.16.3.tar.gz
cd logilab-astng-0.16.3
python install

now test pylint by calling it from the command line. If all is well you should get no error messages/warnings and the standard help output.
