  2. Hi Ronny,

    Try this first: sudo easy_install sploitego

    If that doesn't work then you'll need the setuptools package installed. You can download these tools from the pypi website. Once you've installed sploitego then you can run the command: canari install-package sploitego

  3. Thank you, man! You saved my day.
