Re: Some Debian fixes I pushed in the launchpad bzr


I think you may have just hit an edge case in the ring-builder code.  I
don't think it likes it if you remove all the devices from the ring.  There
is also another edge case where some operations (like rebalancing) will fail
if you have less than 3 zones.

BTW, the easiest way to test a working installation would be to follow the
all in one instructions (http://swift.openstack.org/development_saio.html).
 This will allow you to also run the suite of functional tests.
