Description Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2008-11-16 21:46:46 EST
Description of problem:

If python-cherrypy (3.x) is installed, ipa_webgui won't start.  This is due to setuptools not being able to find the python-cherrypy2 package in this case.

In order to reproduce and test this, do:

yum install -y python-cherrypy ipa-server

/usr/sbin/ipa_webgui -f

failed to start web gui: (CherryPy 3.0.3 (/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages), Requirement.parse('CherryPy>=2.3.0,<3.0.0alpha'))
2008-11-16 18:31:35,463 root ERROR failed to start web gui: (CherryPy 3.0.3 (/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages), Requirement.parse('CherryPy>=2.3.0,<3.0.0alpha'))
  File "/usr/sbin/ipa_webgui", line 196, in <module>

  File "/usr/sbin/ipa_webgui", line 157, in main

  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/", line 626, in require
    needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))

  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/", line 528, in resolve
    raise VersionConflict(dist,req) # XXX put more info here

The attached one line patch will make this work by having the ipa_webgui script say it requires turbogears before any imports are performed.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
