I put my credentials in /etc/boto.cfg as suggested on pages 6-7 of the AWS and python cookbook, and I got an error

boto.exception.NoAuthHandlerFound: No handler was ready to authenticate. 1 handlers were checked.

However putting the credentials in ~/.bashrc resolved this problem (as did manually entering them as

import boto
ec2 = boto.connect_ec2(aws_access_key_id='xxxxxxxx', aws_secret_access_key='xxxxxxx')

has anyone else had similar problems?

I'm keeping them in .bashrc for now, but it would be nice to figure out how to keep them only in /etc/boto.cfg (I also tried keeping them in ~/.boto and that also didn't work)
