[Buildbot-devel] Command-line build master interface

Hi Joe, I was just messing around with that code and I got that same
error. Its probably because you're not specifying the correct port for
the TextClient to talk to the server. In your config, when you create
the PBListener you specify a port: client.PBListener(XXXX). You need to
pass this same port to the TextClient. The one used by default in the
test example conflicted with my slave port. To run the TextClient:

	python base.py localhost:XXXX

(if you're testing locally and the PBListener port was XXXX). I used
8007 for slaves, 8008 for TextClient and 8010 for waterfall.

Hope that helps. You might also want to change clients/base.py test to

	c = TextClient(master, "full")

so that you see all the messages. I believe this is just a listener so
you cannot control the process from here. I don't think there is a
mechanism to control BB from the command line remotely.
