What is the version of pip you are using. If your pip version > 10, then it doesn't support python 2.6. Make sure to upgrade python or install pip version < 10. Then try install the mrjob package.
Please "Accept" the answer if this works.
when i try: pip intall mrjob==0.5.11 it "No module named sysconfig" after looking for sysconfig in python2.6/site-packages. How may I make it work with python3 ? Any help is appreciate.
Add this: need for mrjob error reading this config file as Json (without yaml library)
sudo yum install python-yaml (+ others before)
It's working on Python 2.X
