Re: Debian question



Question, after I entered python manage. py syncdb, then there's a error
which says that I haven't set the database ENGINE settings yet. I opened the
settings.py file and the ENGINE says 'django/db/backends/sqlite3'. You know
why I'm facing this problem??

You probably want to direct your questions to the list instead of to
individuals, because the list as a whole is generally more knowledgeable
than any one individual (such as in this case; I know next to nothing about
python), and because the exchange is archived and therefore available for
future seekers of similar information.

I have installed the django into the linux-Debian on my machine. I ran

What does that mean? I am trying to go into the Django site where it
has the internet, the terminals, etc. So how can I access that??

I quickly googled for django; looks to be a python-based web-app
development tool.

Your question doesn't quite make sense; it sounds like you installed
Debian for the first time in addition to django, and you're not familiar
with Debian, or with GNU/Linux in general.

It sounds like you want to have a graphical system running; currently,
you just have a text-based system running on your Debian box.

You may already have the X Windowing System installed (which will give
you graphics), in which case you can just enter the command "startx &".

If it's not installed, you'll have to install it; probably the quickest
easiest way is to run "tasksel" and choose the option to install a
graphical desktop environment, which should pretty much give you
everything you'll be wanting.
