Testing deliverance

Failed attempts

First step is to create the deliverance setup. Doing it as http://deliverance.openplans.org/quickstart.html tells me fails however. I get some problems with compiling lxml. Great:

...
gcc -pthread -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -fwrapv -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -fPIC \
-I/home/joerg/projects/deliverance/DelivTest/build/lxml/build/tmp/libxml2/include/libxml2 \
-I/home/joerg/projects/deliverance/DelivTest/build/lxml/build/tmp/libxml2/include/libxslt \
-I/home/joerg/projects/deliverance/DelivTest/build/lxml/build/tmp/libxml2/include/libexslt \
-I/usr/include/python2.6 -c src/lxml/lxml.etree.c -o build/temp.linux-i686-2.6/src/lxml/lxml.etree.o -w
src/lxml/lxml.etree.c:138:26: error: libxslt/xslt.h: No such file or directory
...

(lines broken for readability)

Hurray. I try this with python2.6, python2.5, with --no-site-packages and without. Always the same.

Next try: cheeseshop to the rescue: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Deliverance/0.3c2. Unpack, go into it, do a

virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python2.5 --no-site-packages
./bin/python bootstrap.py
./bin/buildout

The last one fails as well, but I uncomment the first lines of the buildout.cfg:

[buildout]
extends = 
    lxml.cfg
parts = test coverage docs pylint
unzip = true
develop = .
....

Now the ./bin/buildout works fine. But now, what? How do I get the delivance proxy. Seems not to work. Mmmh, google to the rescue, maybe?

Successfully getting deliverance to run

http://www.coactivate.org/projects/deliverance/lists/deliverance-discussion/archive/2010/01/1264413333312/forum_view

Not quite, lxml still makes problems. But it seems that the following works:

virtualenv deliverance
cd deliverance
source bin/activate
easy_install DevAuth
wget http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/D/Deliverance/Deliverance-0.3c2.tar.gz
tar -xzf Deliverance-0.3c2.tar.gz
cd Deliverance-0.3c2/
python setup.py install
cd ..
rm -Rf Deliverance-0.3c2*
./bin/paster create -t deliverance thehub
...
Enter host (The host/port to serve on) ['localhost:8000']: 0.0.0.0:8000
Enter proxy_url (The main site to connect/proxy to) ['http://localhost:8080']: http://hubspacedev.the-hub.net/public 
Enter proxy_rewrite_links (Rewrite links from sub_host?) ['n']: y
Enter password (The password for the deliverance admin console) ['']: ******
Enter theme_url (A URL to pull the initial theme from (optional)) ['']: http://hubspacedev.the-hub.net/public/
...

./bin/deliverance-proxy thehub/etc/deliverance.xml

This at least boots up. My original configuration did not work, so I changed the theme/theme.html to:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head></head>
<body>
<div id='content' />
</body></html>

and the etc/deliverance.xml to

...
<proxy path="/">
    <dest href="http://baach.de/" />
    <response rewrite-links="1" />
</proxy>
...

the line

<replace content="children:#content" theme="children:#content" />

seems to trigger some form of replacement. Thats a good start ;-)
