[Buildbot-devel] Problems installing buildbot from arch

I played around with buildbot 0.6.6, built from tarball. 

I liked what I saw, but I'd like some changes (eg doing a build on schedule, 
rather than on change). Might as well do them from the top of the tree - at 
least then they have some chance of getting merged.

I tried to checkout from anon CVS, but it errors out with a complaint about 
"too many links".

I had more success with Arch. However it doesn't install correctly.  
Basically, it builds and installs without error, but then "buildbot setup 
master" fails:
[bradh at marginata ~]$ buildbot master Buildbot
mkdir /home/bradh/Buildbot
chdir /home/bradh/Buildbot
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/buildbot", line 4, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/buildbot/scripts/runner.py", line 
695, in run
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/buildbot/scripts/runner.py", line 
211, in createMaster
    m.sampleconfig(util.sibpath(__file__, "sample.cfg"))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/buildbot/scripts/runner.py", line 
154, in sampleconfig
    config_sample = open(source, "rt").read()
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 

Yep, the problem is that scripts/sample.cfg (and clients/debug.glade) are 
installed with just owner rw.

Thanks again for buildbot - I've got high hopes for it!
