bcfg 1.0.1 version rpm builds but fails to install

Reported by: Owned by: solj
Priority: major Milestone: Bcfg2 1.1.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-client Version: 1.0
Keywords: rpm python Cc: [email protected]


Hello folks,

being interested in running version 1.0.1 (after reading the ChangeLog? since 0.9.6) I succeed building rpms for

bcfg2-1.0-1.noarch.rpm bcfg2-server-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

but I cannot install them with the following reason:

error: Failed dependencies:

/usr/local/bin/python is needed by bcfg2-1.0-1.noarch

Despite the usual path for python is /usr/bin on Linux systems, the most amazing fact about that is that /usr/local/bin/python is indeed present in the system. I've even tried to remove the symbolic link to the /usr/bin/python and make the hard copy but nothing changes.

Any ideas how to get it working and why ever depending on binary instead of package?

How did you build the RPM package? Were you following the instructions at BuildingRPMPackages?

Replying to solj:

How did you build the RPM package? Were you following the instructions at BuildingRPMPackages?

No I didn't :(. Found in the redhat/ directory and tried to get success with it. The spec from misc/ allows one to obtain rpm packages, thanks. All I can say is no much links provided to that page.

There is another issue appeared, though. Now bcfg2-server doesn't start with the following error:

File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/Bcfg2/", line 19, in ?

import ssl

ImportError?: No module named ssl bcfg2-server [FAILED]

Perhaps, QuickStart? guide is obsoleted a bit? I needed to install python-ssl-1.15-3.el5.i386.rpm (found it via to get things working back.

Is python-cheetah obsoleted indeed? Can I safely remove it?

Yes, the Quickstart guide needs to be updated. We will get that done during the code sprint this weekend. You will only need python-cheetah if you plan to use the TCheetah plugin. Otherwise, it is not necessary. If you run into trouble, feel free to hop onto the IRC channel. There are usually a lot of people around to help.
