I'm trying to run trac as a standalone daemon (tracd) because it's much faster than the cgi version, but I'm getting the following error message whenever I try to do something that needs access to the repository (Timeline, Browse, ..):

Trac detected an internal error: 
("Can't create a converter from 'native' to 'UTF-8'", 2)

Traceback (most recent call last):

What does your subversion repository path look like?

comment:2 by m.dellaquila@…, 18 years ago

this is the command I use to launch tracd:

/usr/local/bin/python /usr/local/bin/tracd -p 10200 /var/svn/provasvn/trac

where /var/svn/provasvn is the repository path

So you placed the trac environment directory inside the subversion repository directory? That's probably not a good idea…
