#6897 closed defect (moved_to_github)

python-mini package should include the termios module

Reported by: cory@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Kamikaze trunk
Keywords: Cc:


The package pyserial only requires the python-mini package rather than the full python package. Pyserial requires the python termios module, which is not included in the python-mini package. This prevents pyserial from being usable without the full python package. The termios module should be included in python-mini so that pyserial will be able to work without requiring the full python package.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Install python-mini and pyserial
  2. Start the python interpreter and type "import serial"

This has been a problem for me too.

There is a simple fix:

Install the full python package temporarily (to RAM or external storage) and copy the file /usr/lib/python2.6/lib-dynload/ from the temporary root to your real root.

import pyserial should now work.

I hope one of the developers will add this single file to the pyserial or the python-mini package.
