Description (last modified by ramiro)

I'm running Django 1.2.1 on Python 2.5.4

Whenever I try to add a new instance of a model that contains one of either DateTimeField, DateField, or TimeField, I get "AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'day_abbr'"

I have a feeling it's related to but I'm not sure.

Here are my models. Adding a Baz works just fine, but adding a Bar causes the exception:

from django.db import models

class Bar(models.Model):
    name = models.TextField()
    publish_date = models.DateTimeField()

class Baz(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length = 10)
    age = models.IntegerField()

And a traceback:

Tested on a clean project with versions you gave. I'm guessing you named one of your apps or some other module "calendar" which breaks the built-in python module. Rename your app/module and it should work fine. A similar problem on django-users from the past.

Thanks for looking into this. I thought it might have been something like that too, which is why I started a new project named Foobar, with app Foo, and models Bar and Baz. I'm just going to try a fresh install of Python and Django.

Yup - a fresh install of Python (not just Django) solved this. Thanks again for your help.

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by Lexo

I found the original source of the problem - I had Google's gdata API installed, which includes a "calendar".
