Solution to 2.1.0 problem found!
Squishdot Posted by Alan Pogrebinschi on Friday December 03, 03:30PM, 1999
from the dept.
An email from Scott Kaplan to the Zope List describes a solution that was preventing Squishdot to work with the latest Zope versions. I tested it in my server and it worked just great. Read on...

I will quote Scott's email to the List: "When you add the squishdot product and it begins to create an instance of a squishsite, it would give this error message: Error Type: TypeError Error Value: call of non-function (type module) (i have added the traceback at the bottom of the message) What I did was change the file TextIndex.py in the Zope-2.1.0-linux2-x86/lib/python/SearchIndex and commented out the line 209 : BTree = BTree.BTree and changed lines 253: self._index=BTree() to self._index=BTree.BTree() and 264: self._index=BTree() to self._index=BTree.BTree() "

    I'm installing zope/squishdot for the first time and am having trouble getting the squishdot added. The symptoms are pretty much what you describe though this fix hasn't changed the behavior of the add function. Is there anything else that I must do for this to take effect?


    Following is the details of what I am seeing. Just in case it helps....

    Traceback (innermost last):
    File /usr/local/zope/lib/python/ZPublisher/Publish.py, line 214, in publish_module
    File /usr/local/zope/lib/python/ZPublisher/Publish.py, line 179, in publish

      A few observations:

      1. No it's not the first post
      2. Who cares if it was?
      3. Impersonating other people is a net.crime punishable with virtual hangin' (Butch, raytrace the rope)
      4. For goodness sake, we just got the comments opened up! One loser can screw things up for everyone. Don't be that loser.

      I've heard about first post syndrome (affecting the hard of thinking) on Slashdot, but fortunately I've never seen it because of moderation. Posts with no content disappear from my field of vision. Now we see how Squishdot might benefit from the same.

        2>i thought it was funny as hell (i laughed at the computer for 5 min,yeah my sence of humor is pathetic)
        3>how could i be impersonating other people if i've never impersonated myself
        4>the comments section seems to be working (whats this zope shit i'm reading about)

    Yes indeed. Good job. I have tested this on two platforms and it does indeed fix the problem. It also fixes the error I was experiencing on WinNT with my own Z object. Thanks for posting this fix.

    Does your fix explain why a site which is upgraded to 2.1.0 still works fine (even the search)? It seems to me that an existing site
    should also break but I have not experienced any side effects.
