Hi everybody,

I am quite new to Zope and I want to use the Python debugger as
described in the How-To: The Debugger Is Your Friend.

I installed Zope with the Debian zope package version 2.1.6-5, so my
zope directory is /usr/lib/zope (this is where I have a lib/python
directory), but I have my 'access' file in /var/lib/zope.

That's why when I am in /usr/lib/zope/lib/python and I start python and
then I type "import Zope" I get a 'No access file found' error.

Here is the transcript

# cd /usr/lib/zope/lib/python
# python
Python 1.5.2 (#0, Apr  3 2000, 14:46:48)  [GCC 2.95.2 20000313 (Debian
GNU/Linux)] on linux2

>>> import Zope
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/zope/lib/python/Zope/__init__.py", line 95, in ?
    import Globals, OFS.Application, sys
  File "/usr/lib/zope/lib/python/OFS/Application.py", line 96, in ?

  File "/usr/lib/zope/lib/python/AccessControl/User.py", line 294, in ?
    raise 'InstallError', (
InstallError: No access file found at /usr/lib/zope - see INSTALL.txt

In /usr/lib/zope/lib/python/AccessControl/User.py the code look like

    f=open('%s/access' % INSTANCE_HOME, 'r')
except IOError:
    raise 'InstallError', (
        'No access file found at %s - see INSTALL.txt' % INSTANCE_HOME

Is the Debian package wrong or is the User.py code wrong ?

Can I just change INSTANCE_HOME with "/var/lib/zope"  in the User.py
code ?

Does this bug prevent the debugger from working ?

Thanks in advance for your help.
