Bug Description

Starting the GUI, it consistently fails on an "import gnomekeyring".

Problem is, I can't find it's whereabouts (there must be a 'gnomekeyring.py' somewhere!).

Anyway, this is on an EEE-PC, running some Xandros derivative.

Any clues appreciated.

Thanks,
    Tom.

Hi,

I'm not sure which packaging system does xandros use, but could you check that you've got the gnome-keyring package installed?

It uses a debian-derivative.
There is no package like that mentioned in any of the archives.

SO I thought I'd install it from source (as I've done with some other packages)
but I can't find its' origin...

Regards,
Tom.

Ok, so I got fep-up with the default distro and installed Easy Peasy on it (an Ubuntu-flavor for EEE PC).
This works.
I did find out something though.
The default packages that come with the Asus OS are a Debian derivative from a Xandros derivative. The default repositories contain very little.
You can add debian-repos and that works most of the time (I also tried to add Xandros-repos but they are limited as well). As for the proper packages, I couldn't find them.

To my surprise however, most python-packages are located under the "src"-branch of the repositories (which are by default switched off on most package managers).
I understand the reasoning to put them there but it's not very logical. After all, we're distributing an executable package.

I'm no longer able to test this for the original OS on the EEE PC but I think the solution is to include debian-repositories (including "src"!) to get to packages like python-paramiko etc.

So that might be one for the FAQ: can't find package xyz?, enable "src" in your package manager.

This bug can be closed.

Thanks for this ! I keep it in mind for the FAQ.
