After the last upgrade wicd fails to start. It also stopped writing it's logs and when I call it directly by just entering 'wicd' I get following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/wicd/daemon/wicd-daemon.py", line 61, in <module>
from wicd.logfile import ManagedStdio
ImportError: No module named logfile
I tried purging and re-installing it but to no avail...
Should I file this as a bug or is it just me not seeing something obvious?
Ah yeah, sorry...
I'm running squeeze/sid (apt prefers testing) mainly testing yet I am
a bit confused as I can only seem to find version 1.7.0-2 of wicd on
my system but packages.debian.org states that the current testing
version is 22.214.171.124-4 and testing is 1.7.0-2 (my version). I tried
removing it and re-installing with 'apt-get install wicd=126.96.36.199-4'
with the reply: E: Version '188.8.131.52-4' for 'wicd' was not found?!?
I also run testing/sid and my wicd is from testing.
You might(?) want to try 'aptitude -t testing install wicd' after you
remove your current wicd sid package (not purge). That will bull in a
Just did an update and 'apt-cache show wicd'. Note: I have squeeze and
unstable in my sources.list. Your 1.7.0-2 version does not use the
python packages that 184.108.40.206-4 does.
Strange, I see that there is a python-wicd 1.7.0-2 package in unstable
but it is not shown as Depends in wicd 1.7.0-2 package. Wonder what that
Even if I remove the unstable and stable entries from sources.list and
apt/preferences no other versions show up
I would not put all 3 dists in sources.list. That could/would cause
quite some mess. testing/unstable is bad enough but you should be
careful using it. If I even 'think' about pulling in an unstable
package, and it's dependices, I first run apt-listbugs on all of those
packages before I download any of them
Is there a good way of checking from which repository an installed
package is, by the way?
Yes 'apt-cache policy wicd' will show the packages in every dist you
have in the sources.list, I believe. Here it shows both testing/unstable.
Hope this helps
