It is like Marius Gedminas said earlier in his response: just install python2.4-profiler package and it works.


I'm glad that solved your particular problem. zope.testing is supposed to work without hotshot (and therefore its dependencies like profile), so I'd like to figure out why it's not working correctly.

hotshot.stats throws the ImportException and then exits; there is no traceback available. I think, the only way to catch this case is trying to import profile in testrunner itself before importing hotshot.stats.

This is what has me confused; the only imports of hotshot and hotshot.stats are protected by try/excepts.

You are completely right and there is no problem with python installed from source.

Just for the record, the problem is created by the ubuntu diffs that where automatically installed with the python2.4-minimal package
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/python2.4/python2.4_2.4.3-0ubuntu6.diff.gz

Here is the patch that made it break:

++    import pstats
++except ImportError, msg:
++    import sys
++    sys.stderr.write('ImportError: %s\n' % str(msg))
++    sys.stderr.write('please install the python%s-profiler package\n'
++                     % sys.version[:3])
++    sys.exit(1)
+
+ import hotshot.log
+

Hth anyone facing the same problem,
Michael
