Bug Description


I use the GPLHost repository for Grizzly on Debian Wheezy (
When i try to start the nova-novncproxy service it crashed with this traceback :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/nova-novncproxy", line 32, in <module>
    from nova import flags
ImportError: cannot import name flags

I found this link :
The important part of the thread is that :

" was removed from Grizzly, you may want to update the code for nova dns by using “from oslo.config import cfg” instead."

Package informations :

   - Package: novnc
   - Version: 1:0.4+dfsg+1-7
   - Architecture: amd64

So i did a patch which solves the issue for me, you will find it in attachment.
