I am finding this error a few times on different scripts when installing on CentOS

byte-compiling /usr/share/fail2ban/server/mytime.py to mytime.pyc

 File "/usr/share/fail2ban/server/mytime.py", line 49
   @staticmethod
   ^

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Any ideas


Are you sure that you have Python 2.4? Annotations are available since Python 2.4. --Lostcontrol 15:53, 8 May 2007 (CEST)


I got 2.4.3 root@usa2 [~]# python -V Python 2.4.3


I installed 2.5.1 and still the same problem.


Now it is working the version 0.6.2 installed from an RPM. I will try again 0.8.0 but later. Thanks

Can someone tell me why I´m getting these errors with fail2ban?

I´m using Debian Etch

Thanks!


Please use mailing-list for support next time. It seems that your iptables setup (related to fail2ban) get changed while fail2ban is running. Some firewall scripts/apps flush all rules when saving the changes. If fail2ban runs, it will not find its own chains anymore and will try to restore them. --Lostcontrol 09:57, 13 July 2007 (CEST)
