Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 808071
[RFE] backport --controller from upstream
Last modified: 2015-09-27 22:28:52 EDT
Laszlo, you can probably just rpm -Uvh --force the rpm and it will work. If not you might need to just delete the installed pyc files, then next run of virt-install will just regenerate them. The actual code doesn't have any hard dep on a newer python version.
Unfortunately, it didn't work.
I tried "rpm -Uvh --force" first, but it kept complaining about "python(abi) = 2.7". Then I also added --nodeps (which allowed rpm to install the package), plus I removed all pyc and pyo files under:
When I start virt-install, it says:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/virt-install", line 33, in <module>
ImportError: No module named virtinst
python-2.6 most probably doesn't look for the required files under /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages. Can we change that with an environment variable? (I really don't want to move around or symlink files at this point.) Thanks.

For reference, you can see the system python path with
python -c 'import sys; print sys.path'
You can alter the python path like
PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages python -c 'import virtinst'
Regarding this bug though, it's pretty late in the cycle to backport what is essentially a new feature. Wouldn't be impossible though provided RHEL process isn't prohibitive, dallan what do you think?
