The zenpack installation instructions on zenoss wiki are obsolete for Zenoss 5. Here is how you have to do it on Zenoss 5

mkdir /tmp/zenpack && cd /tmp/zenpack/
serviced service stop zenoss.core
serviced service start ZooKeeper
serviced service start mariadb 
serviced service start RabbitMQ
serviced service start redis
serviced service start zeneventserver 
serviced service start Zope

#If redis fails then use the serviceid shown by the serviced start command for redis service

#Then download zenpack
wget http://wiki.zenoss.org/download/zenpacks/ZenPacks.zenoss.PythonCollector/1.7.4/ZenPacks.zenoss.PythonCollector-1.7.4.egg 

#and install
serviced service run zope zenpack install ZenPacks.zenoss.PythonCollector-1.7.4.egg

#Then start Zenoss
serviced service restart zenoss.core
