I have installed OSQA using the wiki script.

Now I want to compile a message file and I get the following error: django msgfmt command not found

any ideas?

The command + output:

ls

apache2 bin lib osqa osqa.wsgi wfinstall.log

[rijkers@web303 hozburo]$ cd osqa

[rijkers@web303 osqa]$ ../bin/django-admin.py compilemessages

processing file django.po in /home/rijkers/webapps/hozburo/osqa/locale/bg/LC_MESSAGES sh: msgfmt: command not found

Could you please provide the command you are using when you get this error?

just posted the command

For

[rijkers@web303 osqa]$ .../bin/django-admin.py compilemessages -bash: .../bin/django-admin.py: No such file or directory

you have one too many periods at the beginning of your command. You should only have 2.

Not sure if the second command you are running works off of the result of the first one, so if it doesn't, please let me know.

As mentioned in the support ticket, this will be installed as soon as possible. It was just missed.
