Some more details (i probably should have included earlier). This is
the official Amazon Linux AMI which is based on CentOS 5.5. The
Amazon AMI is fully supported by Amazon and is highly recommended by
them. The problem is the unavailability of s3cmd dependencies. I
know that it's possible to make s3cmd work in this environment, but
most users aren't going to know those hoops and loops. I would have
to say that if s3cmd doesn't need Py2.4, and elementtree, then perhaps
you can alleviate a lot of future support requests by having the
installation work in the official Amazon Linux AMI (caveat: I know you
are a busy person and this may not be a priority)
Here's the link on the AMI:
