  • LDTP installation
    gassho on Thu, 27 Nov 2014 08:21:18 +0000


    I'm working on test automation, and I need LDTP in this purpose.
    I tried it on a OpenMandriva 4.0 updated.

    In rpmdrake, it is possible to install LDTP v2.0.5, but a simple "import ldtp" fails in python 2.7. Note that dependency to pyatspi is missing.
    The error is:
    could not import gobject (error was: ImportError('When using gi.repository, you must not import static modules like "gobject". Please change all occurences of "import gobject" to "from gi.repository import GObject".',))
    The problem is that it appears in gi module itself, exactly when doing "from ._gi import _API".
    I will put a complete trace in a second message.

    When downloading last version of LDTP (v3.5.0) and processing installation, a simple "import ldtp" also fails in python (2.7 or 3.3).

    Has anyone a solution ?


  • firewall settings for Samba shares
    Giorgio on Wed, 26 Nov 2014 21:50:23 +0000

    When I try to explore network using Samba shares I get this error message:

    Unable to find any workgroups in your local network. This might be caused by an enabled firewall.
    I tried to change firewall settings but it seems mauch more complicated than in previous releases. Any hint?
