Yes, I went through the same problem.
iniparse-0.3.0 is the culprit!
Just rollback your iniparse to version 0.2.4 and it should install just fine.

I tried rolling back to 0.2.4 but it didn't help.

The initparse developer appears to be actively helping me fix the problem.

The developer has fixed the problem in svn.

i have a transparent proxy with squid and iptables working.

INTERNET-----ADSL----PROXY----LAN----USER

when i install videocache, all is ok,
but
when i paste the "videocache config for squid" in squid.conf, and restart the services, the connection between the LAN and INTERNET fail.

On the other hand, the LAN can ping the ADSL router, but firefox is no working in LAN.

could you help me?

Ezz,

That looks like an iniparse error. Can you please check that with iniparse developers?

Thank You!

Omartux,

Does squid crashes after you paste the videocache config? If so, please check videocache log (/var/log/videocache/videocache.log) for errors or squid logs (cache.log) for python exceptions.

Thank You!

the problem was the config file of videocache

i have been using older version of vc in the past few months. the last that i used to install is version 1.9 and it works just fine, until my box crashes and i need to redo from the start.

this current version (1.9.1) gives me the same problem as stated above...

it will be much appreciated if someone can send me a copy of the version 1.9? tnx....
