CDMI Proxy packages installation not well documented


The installation of the CDMI Proxy package should be more documented: http://resources.venus-c.eu/cdmiproxy/docs/intro.html#installation-from-packages
I installed the deb and I could just find the /etc/cdmiproxy and looking in the system dirs I found a cdmipd binary that I supposed was the startup script. From there I got an error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/cdmipd", line 5, in <module>
from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 2707, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 686, in require
needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py", line 584, in resolve
raise DistributionNotFound(req)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: distribute

If one has a different installation of the dependencies these should be defined somehow (if that is the problem).

Could you please tell me exact OS distro? To assure deb's work there. Ubuntu and Debian versions have somewhat different package names.

It's a Debian

This was caused by a missing python-setuptools package. Documentation was updated to include a reference to this.
