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?
Can't really say as you forgot to tell us what you are running on and which version of wicd isn't working.

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 and testing is 1.7.0-2 (my version). I tried
removing it and re-installing with 'apt-get install wicd='
with the reply: E: Version '' 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 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 is about???

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
