I am going to close this ticket, as it seems this should be invalid (as said in comment:1). I don't know why this was then reopened, a bit confusing... So if I am mistaken, please reopen.

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by geoffhing@…

I ran into this issue when switching from Django 1.3.1 to 1.4.0

I wanted to add this comment to clarify the reason for getting the exception and my fix.

The exception is thrown because I had set the test runner to the GeoDjango like this:


According to the Testing GeoDjango Apps documentation:

In Django 1.2, the addition of Spatial Backends simplified the process of testing GeoDjango applications. The process is now the same as Testing Django applications.

So, specifying the GeoDjango test runner is no longer required and now seems to break things.
