Can´t start, unknown error

Asked by Christian Widell on 2009-05-26

I get this when I try to run entertainer:

christian@Taurus:~/entertainer$ ./entertainer
Entertainer backend starting...
Exception in thread IndexerThread (most likely raised during interpreter shutdown):
Traceback (most recent call last):

Original exception was:

Any idea how to solve it? I haven´t been able to test entertainer before.

By the looks of the traceback, this isn't an Entertainer error. It looks like it is a python error on your Linux distribution. I looked at my /usr/lib/python2.6/ file at line 42. Your traceback is indicating that "os" is None. Since "os" is a core module of python, something is very fishy. Maybe one of your path variables is wrong.

What distribution are you using? Is there any way to get support from them?

Could you try the following from a terminal? Do you get a similar "NoneType" error? (Don't include the backticks in what you type on the command line.):

1) `python`
2) `import os`
3) `os.error`

I think that's about as much help as I can provide. I hope it's enough to get your problem figured out.

Can you help with this problem?
