#19 startup abort...



Startup abort with messages :

14:30:17: Plugin skipped: ProdPageTemplates.plug-in.py,
Zope support is not enabled
14:30:18: ZopeExplorer not installed: No module named

I found a module ZopeExplorer.py in directory ZopeLib
but I don't see what I must do to identify this module
for boa. Is it a bug ?

My configuration is :
Linux redhat 9 and Python 2.2.3

Best Regards,
Stephane G.

    Hi Stephane,

    By default Zope support is turned on and aborting on an
    exception is turned off, so you should have none of these
    issues with a default setup.

    Nonetheless, these messages are not errors, they simply
    reflect the way your Boa is configured.

    I'll explain.
    It looks like Zope Support is simply turned off, but because
    the ProdPageTemplates.plug-in is enabled it gives and
    because it depends on the Zope Support.

    Now depending on what you want there are many options ;)

    Firstly in prefs.rc.py change:
    pluginErrorHandling = 'report'

    Now Boa won't 'abort' at startup (this is the default option)

    Start Boa.

    If you actually want to use the Zope support:
    Under Explorer->Preferences->Plug-ins->Transports->Loading
    order, add a new transport named:

    If you don't want Zope support, you may turn off the extra
    Zope plugins.
    Under Explorer->Preferences->Plug-ins->Plug-in files, disable
    ProdPageTemplates and ProdFormulator.

    Restart Boa.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Riaan,

    I downloaded this last version (not the CVS) and I didn't
    modify any files. The value of pluginErrorHandling is
    'report' in the file prefs.rc.py but Boa stop during or just
    after "Importing Explorers.SSHExplorer. I can see 2 messages

    First is with title "Error on startup" and contains just
    "File" and button OK.
    Second is with title "Warning" and contains ZopeExplorer not
    installed: No module named ZopeExplorer" and two buttons :
    "OK" and "Detail".

    Boa abort when I close 2 windows (but pluginErrorHandling =
    'report') and I can see this :

    importing Explorers.SSHExplorer
