I am trying to install nova from packages through nova PPA as per ( . I am unable to install nova from the recent packages. Looks like its internally installing python-nova and is developing some file conflicts. Below is what I see:

root@node15:~/openstack# dpkg -l | grep nova root@node15:~/openstack# apt-get install nova-common Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree

Could you tell me what could be wrong here. I tried installing two days ago, and it was working fine then with bzr revision number 440. Is there any specific way to download nova packages for a particular bzr revision number?

Thanks Shiny

This should be resolved in the most recent version in the trunk PPA.
