#543 closed defect (wontfix)

TracOnDebian works, for sure. The problem is that for python 2.1 neither notification nor diff works (maybe more… dunno). Could anyone enlightened create a packaged depending on python 2.2? Or add the steps required to exchange python2.1 with 2.2 while still using clearsilver etc.?

Just for the record: I successfully installed Trac on a Debian/untsable machine. I had to download quicksilver (as it's not available for Debian, even though a RFP was file some time ago), and to build it. python2.3 was use while the compilation. And so far it seems to work :)

0.7.2 is cancelled

comment:3 by Jonas Borgström, 18 years ago

Email notification requires python ≥ 2.2.2 and Debian woody (stable) only comes with Python 2.2.1.

Current version of Trac is packaged on unstable and works nice. I think this bug can be closed since it is not Trac problem but stable package version.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

I'm closing this ticket because python 2.2.1 shipped with debian stable is also too old to get email notification to work, see my previous comment.

Hi there,

I resolved this on debian stable (woody) and Trac 0.8 with the following:

apt-get install python 2.2
cd /usr/bin
mv python python.orig
ln -s python2.2 python
cp -R /usr/lib/python2.1/site-packages /usr/lib/python2.2
apache2 -k restart

Diffs work fine now; have not tried notification yet but I see no reason it would fail.

comment:7 by bryan@…, 17 years ago

oops. Actually, replace the first line in the above with:

apt-get install python2.2 python2.2-xmlbase python2.2-sqlite

comment:8 by bryan@…, 17 years ago

Ooops again. Today I tried enabling the mail notification system and discovered that Trac wants Python 2.2.2 or higher for that to work. Oh well! I couldn't locate anything above 2.2.1 for Debian/stable, so folks who want notifications should consider running testing or unstable and getting Python 2.3 or 2.4 I guess.
