It seems the new Ubuntu 9.04 has python2.6 which is creating some
problems for GINI. You need to install python 2.5 and change the
python interpreter location to something like /usr/bin/python2.5 in
the .py files that point to the python interpreter. This solves part of
the problem.. still there are more. The auto assignment of IP and MAC
addresses does not work as well.
