I am trying to prepare a Debian package of freevo new version 1.8.0rc2 ;
the package is ready, but unfortunately, I can't seem to use it start

To try to understand what is going on, I removed all Debian packages;
then I installed dependencies (see below);
I unpack the 1.8.0rc2  tar.gz;
I 'cd' into it
$ ./freevo setup'
$ cp local_conf.py.example ~/.freevo/local_conf.py
eventually I try to start the program, and it exits immediately, with
just this output
$ ./freevo
trying "/var/log/freevo"...
trying "/var/cache/freevo"...

If I try to get some debug info, I see this.

$ ./freevo --debug --trace
version='2.4.4 (#2, Jan  3 2008, 13:36:28) \n[GCC 4.2.3 20071123
(prerelease) (Debian 4.2.2-4)]'
getpid(name='freevo', arg=['python',
'/home/debdev/freevo-1.8.0rc2/src/main.py', '--trace'])
fname='/tmp/freevo-1013.pid' pid=0
start(name='freevo', arg=['python',
'/home/debdev/freevo-1.8.0rc2/src/main.py', '--trace'], bg=0, store=1)

Nothing happens, it dies with no further info.

When I try the above procedure with 1.8.0rc1, I can start freevo.

Here is the install status of some freevo-related packages in this box.
