Comment 1 Łukasz Jernaś 2010-04-21 20:18:53 UTC
After executing sudo conary update pkgconfig:devel gtk:devel git:runtime it started working, so it must be a package alogn the way…
Comment 2 Jesse Zhang 2010-04-22 00:47:14 UTC

This error message of python is not really helpful,

  • File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 1139
    raise child_exception
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

But what it says is that, you are missing git:runtime. (It tries to run git in a child process but can't find it).

Needs some documentation for this.
