virtual bricks giving terminal message failed install

Asked by TossedSalad 999 on 2011-08-17

after trying to install per directions on virtualbricks homepage this is what terminal says:
root@user3-laptop:~# sudo bzr branch lp:virtualbrick virtualbricks
You have not informed bzr of your Launchpad ID, and you must do this to
write to Launchpad or access private data. See "bzr help launchpad-login".
bzr: ERROR: Target directory "virtualbricks" already exists.

 installing our current development branch of virtualbricks is as easy as doing:
 bzr branch lp:virtualbrick virtualbricks
    cd virtualbricks
python setup.py install (as root)

do not hesitate to contact developers using mailing list:
  qemulator-list=AT=createweb=DOT=de
(this returns a spam letter saying I'm not a list member)

What did I do wrong? Had to manually download Virtbricks, python and a few other dependancies and install from packages before got net working in linux.

thank you

Yes we have missed a "/" at the end of the command, the correct one is:
bzr branch lp:virtualbrick virtualbricks/
Sorry for the mistake!
Bye,

Francesco

Francesco Apollonio (lorddex) said : #3

the correct command to get sources from launchpad is:
bzr branch lp:virtualbrick virtualbricks/

Hello, Doing install from your same website directions, adding the / to end of virtualbricks, didnt solve problem:

gives message from root:

You have not informed bzr of your Launchpad ID, and you must do this to write to Launchpad or access private data. See "bzr help launchpad-login". bzr: ERROR: Target directory "virtualbricks/" already exists.

What does "inform bzr of launchpad stuff" mean??

Thanks

What does using virtualbricks emulator have to do with "writing to launchpad or accessing private data"??

TossedSalad 999 (docrighter) said : #6

Per the terminal message: (to see bzr help)

3 folders exist for BZR --
bzrlib: help topics
   --> none named launchpad login.
  --> one named authentications, hard to make sense of as this is supposed to be a virtual emulator isnt it? I have no logon's to http etc that will be involved in using a program. This seems like corporate stuff not for a normal home user. (?)
bzr: README ---> no mention of launchpad except as a sponsor.
(per_bzrdir)--tests...
(and one duplicate of above).

Francesco Apollonio (lorddex) said : #7

You don't need to inform bazaar of your Launchpad ID to download sources from a public branch. You need to do this operation only to write on a branch or to access a private one.
The problem is that the directory "virtualbricks" is still there and you have to delete it before downloading sources.
Do this command:

sudo rm -r virtualbricks/
bzr branch lp:virtualbrick virtualbricks/

I'm waiting for your news.

Francesco

Hi Francesco,
Thank you for your help. I tried again and have not yet gotten out of root to go and see if it works, if it doesnt I will tell you. Not sure what the missing things mean/how important (glade?). This is what the screen said during the install:

root@user3-laptop:~# bzr branch lp:virtualbrick virtualbricks/
bzr: ERROR: Connection error: Couldn't resolve host 'xmlrpc.edge.launchpad.net' [Errno -2] Name or service not known

Yes you need to install 'msgfmt' command, if you use a debian-based distro
tha package that you have to install is 'gettext':
sudo apt-get install gettext
