Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 434732
sync-engine cannot find config.xml
Last modified: 2009-01-09 02:40:48 EST
Description of problem:
If ~/.synce/config.xml does not exist running sync-engine gives:
SynCE sync-engine starting up
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/sync-engine", line 84, in <module>
configObj = Config.Config(progopts)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/SyncEngine/config.py", line 292, in
oldconf = os.path.join(self.path,"config.xml")
AttributeError: Config instance has no attribute 'path'
Copying /usr/share/apps/quanta/csseditor/config.xml to ~/.synce allows
sync-engine to run. The SynCE wiki indicates config.xml should be created
automatically. So something is preventing sync-engine from doing so.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install synce-sync-engine-0.11-6.fc8
2. Run sync-engine with no config.xml file in ~/.synce
Error message and crash
config.xml should be automatically created
You are right that sync-engine should create this file automatically. The cvs
version does so but 0.11 never did so this is not a package bug...
I included /usr/share/doc/synce-sync-engine-0.11/config.xml as a workaround in
the package. Just copy that file to your home directoy and everything should work.
I will see that the synce guys release a 0.11.1 which fixes this.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
This happened to me in Fedora 9
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
