It just so happens that we committed the fix for this to trunk last night:


So if you get the current trunk with:

darcs get --lazy http://tahoe-lafs.org/source/tahoe-lafs/trunk tahoe-lafs

Then you won't have this problem. There is a simple workaround,
though: uninstall (delete) the pycryptopp-0.5.17 package which is
stored in /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6.

How did you get past
http://tahoe-lafs.org/pipermail/tahoe-dev/2010-October/005496.html ?

I was wondering if it had to do with the difference between "cd
$BASEDIR && bin/tahoe" vs. "cd $BASEDIR/bin && ./tahoe". Was that the
difference? Or was it something else?
