#2063: Simfactory dependencies not explicit
 Reporter:  fedelopezar@…          |       Owner:  ian.hinder@…         
     Type:  defect                 |      Status:  new                  
 Priority:  minor                  |   Milestone:                       
Component:  SimFactory             |     Version:  ET_2016_05           
 Keywords:  python simfactory      |  
 When running the Simplified Tutorial for New Users I get the following
 error at configuring Simfactory:

 >> ./simfactory/bin/sim build --mdbkey make 'make -j1'

 Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "./simfactory/bin/../lib/sim.py", line 39, in <module>
     import libutil
   File "/home/fede/Documents/ET/Cactus/repos/simfactory2/lib/libutil.py",
 line 44
     print "could not create logging directory \"%s\", %s" % (log_dir, e)
 SyntaxError: invalid syntax

 The problem turned to be that I have Python3 as default, and Simfactory
 will only work with Python2. I got Python3 when installing Jupyter
 Notebook. I got help from Jonah Miller, and came with the solution:

 >> conda create --name python2 python=2 anaconda mpich2
 >> source activate python2

 The tutorial may needs to specify that you need python2.
