I installed django.contrib.admin to my new project. When I navigate to /admin/, I receive this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/django/django_src/django/core/handlers/" in get_response

  1. callback, callback_args, callback_kwargs = resolver.resolve(request.path)

File "/django/django_src/django/core/" in resolve

  1. sub_match = pattern.resolve(new_path)

File "/django/django_src/django/core/" in resolve

  1. sub_match_dict.update([(smart_str(k), v) for k, v in sub_match[2].items()])

AttributeError at /admin/

If I make the following changes to, basically undoing changeset 5636:

#sub_match_dict = dict([(smart_str(k), v) for k, v in match.groupdict().items()])
#sub_match_dict.update([(smart_str(k), v) for k, v in sub_match[2].items()])
#return sub_match[0], sub_match[1], sub_match_dict
sub_match_dict = dict(self.default_kwargs, sub_match[2])
return sub_match[0], sub_match[1], dict(match.groupdict(),

the problem goes away and I get the login page for the administrative interface for my project.

This is my first time submitting a bug to an open source project. If I'm unclear, please feel free to contact me at hangonline{at}
