I have installed squid and its running fine
now i am trying to install videocache
First i did # python setup.py install [in videocache-1.9.1 folder]
But at that time python-iniparse was not installed
I then installed iniparse, but now when i try to do # python setup.py install i get the following errors:
vpro:/home/ztel/videocache-1.9.1# python setup.py install Traceback (most recent call last): File "setup.py", line 397, in <module> setup(root) File "setup.py", line 288, in setup if not dir_perms_and_ownership(new_dir, squid_user, squid_group): File "setup.py", line 76, in dir_perms_and_ownership user = pwd.getpwnam(user) KeyError: 'getpwnam(): name not found: squid' vpro:/home/ztel/videocache-1.9.1#
and here is the videocache setup log
2009-06-17 13:03:15,039 INFO Directory /etc/apache2/conf.d already exists. 2009-06-17 13:03:15,039 INFO Directory /etc already exists. 2009-06-17 13:03:15,039 INFO Directory /usr/share already exists. 2009-06-17 13:03:15,039 INFO Directory /usr/share/man/man8 already exists. 2009-06-17 13:03:15,039 INFO Directory /usr/sbin already exists. 2009-06-17 13:03:15,040 INFO Directory /var/log/videocache already exists.
Please tell me how i can overcome this.
Thank you very much
When videocache tries to install its files by default it attempts to 'chown' them to the 'squid' user on the machine. In your case, this user does not exist. Please modify setup.py (lines 33 and 35) to reflect the user which you run Squid under.
I guess you are using Debian or a derivative. In your case squid is run by user proxy and not squid (in Red Hat derivatives). So you need to change the user and group to proxy before attempting installation.
