I'm getting a problem with "Failed to load application: No module named system"
I have a test.tac and a system.py inside a user (joe) home directory. I can start it as Joe:
[joe@bubbles joe]$ twistd -y test.tac
However, when I try to start it as root in joe's home dir, I get the "Failed to load application" error message.
[root@bubbles joe]# twist -y test.tac
Failed to load application: No module named system
I solved it via adding Joe's home dir (/home/joe) to the pythonpath in root's acct. Why can't it import the system module even though it's in the same dir? A python prompt does work when I manually import the module.
