Need to know if this should be cloned for RHEL6 and the impact:

- is dynforms python module in RHEL6 / does it need to be?
- has this been resolved in another way?

Chris and I discussed this, and decided that it was best to just include that library with luci. It's pretty small (just provides an widget for a form that automatically grows fields).

The error is probably a packaging error (my fault). I'll look into it.

As mentioned by Kith Wright in bug #563372, a workaround for now is to use easy_install to install tw.dynforms:

$ sudo easy_install tw.dynforms
Searching for tw.dynforms
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/tw.dynforms/
Reading http://pajhome.org.uk/
Best match: tw.dynforms 0.9.8
Downloading http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/t/tw.dynforms/tw.dynforms-0.9.8.tar.gz#md5=188aafe67667f291812f4382a51eb7f8
Processing tw.dynforms-0.9.8.tar.gz
Running tw.dynforms-0.9.8/setup.py -q bdist_egg --dist-dir /tmp/easy_install-qBVIe2/tw.dynforms-0.9.8/egg-dist-tmp-U9VZuF
Adding tw.dynforms 0.9.8 to easy-install.pth file

Installed /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/tw.dynforms-0.9.8-py2.6.egg
Processing dependencies for tw.dynforms
Finished processing dependencies for tw.dynforms

Doing this, then restarting the luci service (required) then allowed the local web interface to function.

This bug is also present in RHEL 6 public beta.

Comment 2 Justin Clift 2010-05-03 01:55:44 UTC
It may be worth mentioning that even after installing the dynforms Python module as indicated above, luci doesn't really work.  The web interface loads, however any form that's submitted fails with an "unknown keyword" error on whatever variable was being submitted.

luci was de-installed from the test lab boxes yesterday, so my apologies about this low quality bug update and not being able to provide the exact error message. :(

Comment 3 Perry Myers 2010-05-03 09:42:51 UTC
Just to be clear, luci in beta1 was in non working condition as we still had major development effort to do on it at that point.  We are expecting it to be in working condition for the next beta.
