Honestly I don't understand your question. Best is to use 'git clone ...'. Then activate your virtualenv as written in the docs and do 'python setup.py develop'.
Which of these steps did you do, in which step do you see problems?
I meant that i couldnt find the mediacore tarball i download so i can upack and install it. i tried using git but i'm still having issues with enabling epel repository which is required to install git.
Hmm, https://github.com/mediacore/mediacore/zipball/master returns a zip file which you can unzip using the unzip tool. To get a tarball you need to fetch this url: 'https://github.com/mediacore/mediacore/tarball/master'

Huh? Enabling is pretty easy usually (assuming you are on CentOS/RHEL 5):
rpm -i ftp://ftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/linux/fedora-epel/5/x86_64/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
Felix i appreciate the help. The file from 'https://github.com/mediacore/mediacore/tarball/master' saves as master on my local computer, i have tried to unpack it with tar xzvf MediaCore-0.9.0.tar.gz but it returns cannot open: no file or directory. how do reosolve this?
I used the developer install commands but i get this error" error: /usr/include/python2.4/pyconfig-32.h:No such file or directory" when i run "python setup.py develop" how do i resolve this?
If the file is saved as 'master' you should use 'tar xzvf master' of course.
Never had the problem with pyconfig-32.h. Are you using a 32 bit system? Sounds like you did not install python-devel.
Btw: MediaCore (git) is currently not compatible with Python 2.4 which you are using. Either install python26 from epel (+ the virtualenv for python26) or you need the patches which I sent as pull requests (see MediaCore github page).
I had almost the same problem:
error: /usr/include/python2.4/pyconfig-64.h: No such file or directory
But i have installed python-devel and now python setup.py develop works.
@icecrash: Can you please open a new thread for your issue and describe what you did?
