Re: [virt-tools-list] virt-manager reporting wrong virtinst version and refuse to start



Hi,

I know that you already showed to me what I should do now and that I should be able to walk with my own legs, but I don't know what argument I should use in 'python setup.py install'.

The available options are:

Options for 'install' command:
  --prefix            installation prefix
  --exec-prefix       (Unix only) prefix for platform-specific files
  --home              (Unix only) home directory to install under
  --user              install in user site-package
                      '/home/lamps/.local/lib/python2.6/site-packages'
  --install-base      base installation directory (instead of --prefix or --
                      home)
  --install-platbase  base installation directory for platform-specific files
                      (instead of --exec-prefix or --home)
  --root              install everything relative to this alternate root
                      directory
  --install-purelib   installation directory for pure Python module
                      distributions
  --install-platlib   installation directory for non-pure module distributions
  --install-lib       installation directory for all module distributions
                      (overrides --install-purelib and --install-platlib)
  --install-headers   installation directory for C/C++ headers
  --install-scripts   installation directory for Python scripts
  --install-data      installation directory for data files
  --compile (-c)      compile .py to .pyc [default]
  --no-compile        don't compile .py files
  --optimize (-O)     also compile with optimization: -O1 for "python -O", -O2
                      for "python -OO", and -O0 to disable [default: -O0]
  --force (-f)        force installation (overwrite any existing files)
  --skip-build        skip rebuilding everything (for testing/debugging)
  --record            filename in which to record list of installed files
  --install-layout    installation layout to choose (known values: deb, unix)

Since 'python -c 'import sys; print sys.path' gives me these directories:

lamps ubunteira:/opt/virtinst-0.500.5$ cd /
lamps ubunteira:/$ python -c 'import sys; print sys.path'
['', '/usr/lib/python2.6', '/usr/lib/python2.6/plat-linux2', '/usr/lib/python2.6/lib-tk', '/usr/lib/python2.6/lib-old', '/usr/lib/python2.6/lib-dynload', '/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages', '/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/PIL', '/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/gst-0.10', '/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6', '/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/gtk-2.0', '/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/gtk-2.0', '/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages']

I tried installing with sudo python setup.py install -f --home /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6, and also setting this --home parameter to /usr/lib/python2.6, installation runs OK, but virt-manager still not launching.

I'll reboot the machine, just in case. =]

You should be able to mess with setup.py install arguments to install virtinst
into /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6, which is where ubuntu seems to store
things, or some other place in the default python path.

See python -c 'import sys; print sys.path' to see all the place python looks
for modules on your system.

See python setup.py install --help to see available install options.
