Cc: Trac Release: 0.9


I have installed and configured AccountManagerPlugin on my TRAC v0.95 server,
but when I try to change my password from "MyAccount" section, I receive the following error message

Trac detected an internal error:
[Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/dev/urandom'

It seems to be the use of '/dev/urandom' that does not exist on Windows sistems...

Is it a known problem?

  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

Htpasswd is currently unsupported on Windows due to the lack of a secure random number generator in Python 2.3. See #63

For now I'd recommend using htdigest instead.
