Error using right numberformat in calculation / LC_NUMBER should set right way

Hi, since a while I try to get satchmo running right way. The most horrible problem is, that it stores numbers in form "1234,56" not in "1234.56" into database. (Prices etc.) this results in an exception and installation becomes unusable. -> clean up.

After a while I've got it via the hack that I let run apache explicit with LANG='C' environment variable and setting explicit locale.setLocale('C'). voila. Seems working now.

Until I try to pay.

Item has a unit price of 20.00 €. Will - german site - displayed as 20,00 of course. All calculation works as expected (summary and so on), but on {{{/checkout/<paymentmethod>}}} I got the exception about wrong number format (in {{{ in _raise_error, line 2325}}}) again. Viewing into the local variables shows me, that will get a "20,00" instead of a "20.00" again. Now I'm giving up. appended the backtrace. I think, satchmo should make clear how to work in multi-lingual environments/setup, should internal check numbers stored into database or make sure that numbers going to backend are formatted the right way. Any hints for a workaround welcome.

    This only with sqlite database, with mysql I have some other problems (exceptions about data truncated when insert into sub_total but this is another bug).

    Which test do you mean? all inside satchmo-folder or some specific?

  2. Former user Account Deleted

    This is Django bug not Satchmo's. The details are here: [ #6783] As a quick hack around, before someone commits a proper fix to Django's trunk would be to either check values in satchmo/payment/common/ right before processing them (i.e. treat them as string first and do .replace(",", ".") or with regexp) or on models level (i.e. override the save() on Order model and do the same trick with replace or regexp)

    I ran it and I didn't see any error in database checks, no idea anymore whats going wrong with sqlite :(

    You can run "./ test" in your project directory to run the unit tests.

    What database are you using? If you switch to sqlite does this go away?

    Also, could you try running the included unit tests and see if they work properly.
