Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2013-05-28 09:42:24 CEST
Currently, the installer verifies that our Python is "recent enough":

# Make sure we have valid Python
if ${PYTHON} -c "import sys; sys.exit(sys.hexversion < 0x2040000)"; then

However, we do not check that it is a 2.X version, ie *not* Python 3.X, which does not work.

[samuel@justina-60 ~]$ PYTHON=python3 thinlinc-nightly/installer/install-server 

Error: A Python interpreter between version 2.4 and 2.7 is required.
I was trying to use the Python interpreter named 'python3'.
If Python is installed under a different name, set the PYTHON
environment variable to the Python binary to use. Example:
PYTHON=/usr/bin/python2.4 sh ./install-server

Looks good.
