Bug Description

I installed checkbox from the certification website on Jaunty Alpha5 running on a Samsung NC10. When I run checkbox I get the following error.

$ sudo checkbox-compatibility-gtk
[sudo] password for manjo:
/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/checkbox/lib/safe.py:20: DeprecationWarning: the md5 module is deprecated; use hashlib instead
  import md5
$

That's only a warning. If it's failing to start, it must be for some other reason. This looks a little bit like bug 334896

Could also be a result of the Python update. We've changed the compatibility packages to fix the issue.

Manoj, could you try with the current version?

I tried the latest checkbox that cr3 pointed me to and I can confirm that this works on the NC10, I was able to complete the certification and submit to the website.

This has been fixed in version 0.7 of checkbox currently in jaunty:

def safe_md5sum():
    try:
        import hashlib
        digest = hashlib.md5()
    except ImportError:
        # for Python << 2.5
        import md5
        digest = md5.new()

    return digest

Changed in checkbox-compatibility:

Changed in checkbox (Ubuntu Jaunty):
assignee: schwuk → cr3
status: Incomplete → Fix Released
