Update on grok web development tryout

After dancing around the pale moonlight with a newly slaughtered chicken in my birthday suit, offering fruits to the grok gods, finally today the gods were kind on me and helped me along to find this solution that works! The closest I got the example in the grok book to work is to install the grokproject and start a new project without errors, but when I try to start up the devel server, all sorts of strange manner of monsters jumped out at me.

Just have a look at this : What needs to be done is to edit the paster template and everything will work fine. I guess either this bug has not been looked into or is still an open bug.

Heh! I spoke too soon, I got to the main page of grok management but as soon as I try to do anything, I get this:

"TypeError: character mapping must return integer, None or unicode"

Hmmm ... google gods say this:

Not really a solution

Not much of a solution it seems, just that Python-2.6 is not supported. I am using grokproject, but how can I see what version of grok is grokproject using. As the mail says, errors like this is really really off putting and does not help with building confidence with the project!
