Description (last modified by adrian)


In the 2594th revision of "django/core/" there's an error (I suppose) which was introduced in r2567.

$ ./ install sampleapp
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 17, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/core/", line 1184, in execute_manager
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/core/", line 1152, in execute_from_command_line
    output = action_mapping[action](mod)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/core/", line 535, in install
    sys.stderr.write(style.ERROR("""Error: %s couldn't be installed. Possible reasons:
TypeError: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'instance' objects

It can be fixed by:

$ svn diff django/core/

-The full error: """ % (app_name, app_name)) + style.ERROR_OUTPUT(e) + '\n')
+The full error: """ % (app_name, app_name)) + str(style.ERROR_OUTPUT(e)) + '\n')

Though I don't know if it was the author's intention.
