Error in latest binary installer

Hi guys,

When trying to install using the latest binary (on debian lenny 64bit) it dies with the following error. Any idea how I can get past this?
Code:
[...]
Creating /usr/bin/ebook-viewer
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "<string>", line 327, in <module>
  File "<string>", line 293, in main
  File "<string>", line 248, in do_postinstall
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/subprocess.py", line 444, in call
    return Popen(*popenargs, **kwargs).wait()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/subprocess.py", line 594, in __init__
    errread, errwrite)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/subprocess.py", line 1147, in _execute_child
    raise child_exception
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory
Note that this is a headless server - so almost anything GUI-related is missing. I have previously installed calibre on this box using the easy_install method, but that no longer works.

Cheers,
Erayd

This is the post install stage so most things should work even if it fails.

Except that they don't. Trying to run any of the standard utilities results in this error:
Code:
osiris:/opt/calibre# ./html2lrf --help
-bash: ./html2lrf: No such file or directory

osiris:/opt/calibre# ./mobi2lrf --help
-bash: ./mobi2lrf: No such file or directory

osiris:/opt/calibre# ./lit2lrf --help
-bash: ./lit2lrf: No such file or directory
Thanks for such a prompt reply - that was *very* quick!

Assuming you mean the full installer output, here it is. If you're referring to a separate logfile, where is this located?

Cheers,

It gives me this:
Code:
osiris:/# /usr/bin/calibre-debug
/usr/bin/calibre-debug: line 6: ./calibre-debug: No such file or directory
Running it from /opt/calibre gives this:
Code:
osiris:/# /opt/calibre/calibre-debug
-bash: /opt/calibre/calibre-debug: No such file or directory

Yep.... I'm stumped too. Is there anything I can try that would help solve this? I'm not sure whether it's an issue with my system or with the installer. The current mess occurred after trying to install the latest version via the binary installer. The previous version on the system was pre-epub, and was installed via easy_install-2.5. As I couldn't find an uninstaller for this, I just let the new calibre installer steamroll whatever else was in the way - could this be part of the problem?

Another thought - is it looking for GUI libraries or something that don't exist?

No a previous installation shouldn't matter. According to that error message it's failing to find a file that exists, which should be impossible

It is? My understanding of that error is that the named file is generating the "No such file or directory" message, but isn't saying which file it failed to find. That's the way bash usually handles such things iirc, although I could be wrong.
