pywebdev for Ubuntu v9.10 released

I’ve posted a release of the pywebdev Python Web Developer package for Ubuntu that has been updated for compatibility with the recently released Ubuntu v9.10 Karmic Koala .

Version 2.6 (updated to the recently released 2.6.4) is the default Python environment in Karmic.   For compatibility and flexibility pywebdev also includes complete environments for Python versions 2.4 and 2.5.

A small number of packages have changed since the v9.04 release:

Installing Ubuntu 9.10 Beta under VMware Fusion 2.06

This evening I installed the recently released Ubuntu 9.10 Beta in virtual machine under VMware Fusion version 2.06 on OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard).

I downloaded the “Alternate Install” ISO so that I would have an image that will work for the widest variety of hardware and situations.

The installation went fine and operationally the system appears to run just fine, but the installation of the VMware Tools consistently gave a “black screen” upon reboot. I tried a couple (1 2 ) of the proposed workarounds with no success.

So at this point I’d suggest not installing the VMware Tools or at a minimum creating a Snapshot of the system prior to installing the tools to allow for an easy recovery.
