python path problems
#1
Hi,

there`s a problem with getting the current working directory while starting python scripts/plugins. Here's an quick example of what it looks like.

Code:
# main import's
import sys
import os

# Shared resources
BASE_RESOURCE_PATH = os.path.join( os.getcwd().replace( ";", "" ), "resources" )
sys.path.append( os.path.join( BASE_RESOURCE_PATH, "lib" ) )

print BASE_RESOURCE_PATH
print sys.path
Results in ..

Due to this bug its impossible to run any python script or plugin within the Linux port of XBMC that make use of it (almost all).

I can confirm this. a lot of python scripts are failing because of that. I believe the path that is returned is the build directory path (it must be hardcoded somewhere ).

What is weird is that this is working with the version on the PPA ( 2.1a1p1 ) and not with the svn ...

Could you let me know what revision is the 2.1a1p1? Maybe it could be fixed easily.

it was based on SVN REV 12195

I have tried with the latest SVN :

sys.path.append("lib")
print sys.path

and I get the right path.

Hm. Appending "lib" to sys.path should result in "lib" Smile But ill test it asap.
