I'm on Scientific Linux 7 and have been trying to install QGIS. According to the instructions, I need to
sudo wget fedora.vitu.ch/EL/qgis.repo -P /etc/yum.repos.d/ sudo rpm --import http://fedora.vitu.ch/Fedora/RPM-GPG-Key-vitu sudo yum update sudo yum install qgis qgis-python qgis-grass qgis-mapserver
The first step fails with a 403, but running the final two steps anyway did work, as QGIS seems to be available in the epel repo.
Now when I run QGIS though, I get the error "No module named sip".
I've looked everywhere and the only installers/source for SIP are for python 3. Is it possible to install SIP on python 2.7? Is there a workaround to get QGIS plugins working?
