It seems that starting with Ubuntu 11.10, one has to patch Python in order to
make MirrorBrain work. Sadly, I forgot to document the precise error message
today, but here's what I had to patch in order to make it run:

sed -i s/"conn.autocommit(auto)"/"conn.autocommit = auto"/g

sed -i s/"conn.autocommit(1)"/"conn.autocommit = 1"/g

That's actually a bug in Ubuntu's python-sqlobject package then.

Looking at ,
it has been fixed at some time, but I can't see on which Ubuntu versions
an update was issued. Anyway, we can't do anything here than

  1. document the problem, and
  2. complain upstreams (Ubuntu resp. python-sqlobject upstream).

Do you happen to know if the problem was fixed everywhere?

I agree, we can't fix it, but stating a warning makes sense.
I just grabbed and looked at
the file, and it seems this bug is still in 12.04. Given that LTS release is in
wide use, a warning makes sense.

And, can you confirm that this is really a bug in Ubuntu? I'm a Python noob, so
I don't know in detail. Happy to open a bug report if so (I thought I had, but
can't find it right now somehow...)

Yes, it is really a bug in Ubuntu.

And I found the bug report you were thinking of:

msg469 (view) Author: floeff Date: 2014-01-23.10:34:06

Seems to require some work to get that escalated to be fixed in 12.04. I lack
time for it right now, but maybe someone wants to have a look :-)
