RH72 install & bugs
Sat, 2 Feb 2002 14:33:34 -0600 (CST)
I just installed GNUe on my RedHat 7.2 desktop. There are a couple things
I had to do beyond Keith Nasman's guide so PostgreSQL would work:
- Install the "mx" package.
I downloaded egenix-mx-base-2.0.3-py2.1_1.src.rpm from
and built it with "rpm --rebuild", then installed
The prebuilt i386 RPM on that page doesn't work on RedHat 7.2. It uses
/usr/local/lib/python2.1 paths instead of /usr/lib/python2.1.
- Install pypgsql 1.6.
I downloaded pypgsql-1.6.tar.gz from
I changed include_dirs in setup.py to be "/usr/include/pgsql" and
library_dirs to be "/usr/lib", corresponding to the dirs in RedHat's
postgresql-devel RPM (which must be installed). Then
"python2 setup.py install"
In the process I ran into some bugs I don't know how to fix (in the latest
- Non-standard locales (try LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8") don't work well.
Lots of exceptions thrown and some important text missing.
- The error message when a driver fails to load is not helpful.
GConnections.py has this in _load_dbdriver:
dbdriver = dyn_import("gnue.common.dbdrivers.%s" % (driver))
except ImportError, err:
GDebug.printMesg(1,'ImportError importing driver %s' % (driver))
raise GDataObjects.ProviderNotSupportedError, \
"No database driver found for provider type '%s'" % driver
...but the GDebug lines don't actually work for some reason. I had to
comment out the exception-catching stuff so I could see the original
- The property editor doesn't let me edit things.
On Windows with the 29 Jan builds, I could edit pages, data sources, and
blocks. I couldn't get it to associate a text entry box with a field...it
just wouldn't let me edit the "field" property.
On Linux with today's CVS, I can't even edit data sources. I can look at
all of the properties but can't change anything. I can edit Pages and
the Form but that's it.
- On Windows with the 29 Jan build, I can't open existing GFD files in
the designer. It says "I do not know what to do with a .gfd file!"
Works fine with today's CVS on Linux, so either fixed or
Well, I'm getting closer anyway. ;)
