Description Henrik Andersson cendio 2012-06-20 13:06:18 CEST
os.EX_NOTFOUND attribute is not found in os.

see issue in tracker:


Comment 1 Aaron Sowry cendio 2012-07-13 13:23:50 CEST
From http://docs.python.org/library/os.html:

"Note: Some of these [exit code definitions] may not be available on all Unix platforms, since there is some variation. These constants are defined where they are defined by the underlying platform."

We should stop using os.EX_NOTFOUND (possibly even os.EX_*) in our code.
Comment 2 Aaron Sowry cendio 2012-07-13 15:26:47 CEST
EX_NOTFOUND is not defined on any of our supported platforms. In fact I can't find any mention of it at all, except for a handful of oblique references to POSIX.2 (from 1998). We should stop using this.

As far as I can tell, all the other EX_*s seem to be okay.
Comment 3 Aaron Sowry cendio 2012-07-13 15:44:54 CEST
Fixed in r24592
Comment 4 Karl Mikaelsson cendio 2012-10-10 14:41:39 CEST
Installation on "RHEL 5" went just fine. (It was actually CentOS 5, but it didn't have os.EX_NOTFOUND anyway)

The actual commit is r25492 and not r24592, though. The commit message for 25492 references this bug.
