Installing 1.9.5 fresh | importerrors
  • After careful consideration we decided to upgrade to 1.9.5. Upon importing the full media library the monitor holds on what its seems is still an encoding error. It fails with:

     File "/usr/lib/airtime/airtime_virtualenv/lib/python2.6/site-packages/", line 2075, in __walk_rec
        for root, dirs, files in os.walk(top):
      File "/usr/lib/airtime/airtime_virtualenv/lib/python2.6/", line 294, in walk
        for x in walk(path, topdown, onerror, followlinks):
      File "/usr/lib/airtime/airtime_virtualenv/lib/python2.6/", line 284, in walk
        if isdir(join(top, name)):
      File "/usr/lib/airtime/airtime_virtualenv/lib/python2.6/", line 70, in join
        path += '/' + b
    UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 21: ordinal not in range(128)

    which still seems to be the unicode error. I checked on the dev site and its supposed to be fixed.
    Any solutions ?

  • Hi,

    Please private message me a link to the file causing the problem.

  • Our Other sysadmin fixed the problem by reinstalling. After a long talk ( shame he did not keep the log files ) we both figured it had probably something to do with the monitor service being interrupted and after continuing not knowing where to pick up.

    Reinstalling imported the whole database of music again.

  • So are you saying that the problem cannot be reproduced anymore?

  • Yup I had a quarrel about it with our other sysadmin. Always back up youre logfiles before reinstalling !
