Attic requires Python 3.2 or above to work. Even though Python 3 is
not the default Python version on most Linux distributions, it is usually
available as an optional install.
The OpenSSL version bundled with Mac OS X and FreeBSD is most likey too old. Newer versions are available from homebrew on OS X and from FreeBSD ports.
The llfuse python package is also required if you wish to mount an archive as a FUSE filesystem.
Virtualenv can be used to build and install
without affecting the system Python or requiring root access.
