    Huzzah! If only "wait for someone else to fix the bug" was always the answer :)
  2. In Topic: django failing on locale.getdefaultlocale()

    Is there a downside to downgrading back to 1.1.1 if it works? Or perhaps get it working under 1.1.1 first and then try and get it working under 1.4.3. Fortunately, they list most backwards incompatible feature in the changelogs when a new version is released (I think), so it may just be a case of scouring them and tweaking if you went that way.

    Good luck with that.

    I figured you might have tried that :) Don't think I can offer much more light on it right now.

    I really like working with Django, if you have a Python backend I'd definitely say Django was a good candidate for working with it over other web frameworks anyway. Hopefully it will all work out, I'd be interested to know what the fix was.

    Edit: I found this blogpost about locale error in, but a different part. Their solution was to export the locale variables in the environment instead of in the Python files.

    Posted 13 May 2013

    I haven't used Django for a couple of years now probably, and never had this error since it was before 1.4.3 anyway. This may be something you've already tried.. but let's see.

    When you put "in a line to explicitly set locale in the script" was it:

    locale.setlocale(LC_ALL, '')

    Lets it use the default locale as defined by the LANG variable. (Python docs)

    There is a set locale in the locale module, and default one in the os module, and perhaps some other places. Try sticking one of those (if you haven't) at the top of

    I'd be happy to help if you posted your code in the Python section of the forums.

    I don't understand the computation of how to solve the problem, not coding but the math. I need to a program that reads in the x and y coordinates of a triangle’s vertex's. I need to compute and output the triangle’s perimeter. I was told I could use Pythagorean Theorem 3 times and I could use
    Math.sqrt((x2 –x1) 2 + (y2 –y1)2)to compute each side length. A sample input and output...
