I'm new to ethereum & do not have any ethereum clients 'installed'. I'm trying to install pyethapp in a clean virtualenv following the github tutorial, but it produces the following error.

pip install pyethapp

Do I need to install this thing called 'leveldb' manually? Or am I doing something wrong?

  • My bet is on that this is some sort of Windows related packaging issue. It says "Using cached leveldb-0.193.tar.gz". Try clear your pip cache. – Mikko Ohtamaa Feb 16 '17 at 13:29
