This doesn’t make any sense but here it goes.
I was running fail2ban just fine when I got a patch from Cyril, I tried to compile it but in the end it didn’t work.
I backed out my change and re-compiled but it wouldn’t execute properly.
No problem, I untarred a new copy ran the python setup.py install and still no luck.
I then removed anything that said fail2ban on the whole server, un tarred a new copy compiled and still no luck.
It makes no sense and this is what I get when trying to run the client.
