@bigMouthCommie there's an error about running out of disk space, so I'd guess that's part of your problem.


cleaned up disk space, i'm in the right directory, getting an error with django

@bigMouthCommie in this one, you're missing a 'pipenv install' before you try to run the server. You also have to run migrations before running the server.

@gcupc so i nuked the whole dir and started again.

frankly i think my system is in bad shape, so i'm going to prioritize upgrading to a fresh install of deb10 and see if i can get it to run later in the week.

thank you for walking through all this with me. i really appreciate the help.


so i am running a fresh deb10 install, grabbed python3 along with -pip and -django

defined MY path and PYTHONPATH

git cloned the repo

followed the steps that started to do the thing on deb9...

and faled at pipenv install

can i ask what your production environment looks like? i'd love to run brutaldon but just the config has me almost in tears

@bigMouthCommie I have production installs on Fedora and CentOS, but I've run it in a Debian chroot on Android and Debian under WSL, so it shouldn't be picky. I think you're overcomplicating things. Let me make just a series of commands (next post).

@bigMouthCommie $ git clone && cd brutaldon
$ pip3 install --user pipenv # pip for python3 may be installed as pip3 on your system
$ pipenv update # This installs all the dependencies, including Django
$ pipenv run ./ migrate # This sets up your initial database (sqlite)
$ pipenv run ./ runserver # This runs the server

This really should be everything you have to run.


i git cloned right into ~/

so, strangely, i don't have ~/.local/bin in the path

i called pipenv in line 3 with ./../.local/bin/pipenv

it threw a series of errors


user@wayPoint:~/brutaldon$ ./../.local/bin/pipenv update
Running $ pipenv lock then $ pipenv sync.

@bigMouthCommie Not sure why, but your python3 pipenv is trying to import a python2 logging library. Your python environment is probably all messed up.

@gcupc wierd. i had previously broken my python env with sudo pip and, with other system instabilities, and being unable to install brutaldon, i decided to make a fresh install.

i am not a python dev (obviously). can you suggest a method to fix this? would making a user for brutaldon make sense?

@gcupc omg. im an idiot. i wasnt even in the right dir. i'll get back wtih you if i run into further issues
