Has anyone seen this error when trying to start a proxy server right after a fresh install/setup of Swift?

Error trying to load config from /etc/swift/proxy-server.conf: xattr>=0.4

I am not sure why the yum install commands pulled down such old versions of swift (see below). I have been working on Ubuntu and this is my first dance with CentOS. It's also python 2.6.

$ rpm -q -a |grep openstack

What repository are you getting OpenStack packages from? It looks like you have the Havana version of openstack-utils but as you note very old Swift packages.

Thank you. That was it. The docs I was following was not updated for grizzly. I created the following .repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d and was able to pull down 1.8 versions swift for Grizzly. CentOS was pretty painless to install once I got the more recent versions.

Place this file in your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory

[epel-openstack-grizzly] name=OpenStack Grizzly Repository for EPEL 6 baseurl= enabled=1 skip_if_unavailable=1 gpgcheck=0 priority=98 ~

This isn't because you have an old version of Swift. The version 1.10 comes after 1.9. This is bug somewhere in the packaging of Swift, I've already opened a bug for this:

Maybe you could work around it by installing xattr (not the same as pyxattr).
