Ok, this worked on CentOS 7 box, but not on Fedora 24, which has QT5 and Python
3. Can you help me to debug this? The content of the file in Fedora 24 is:
$ cat /etc/pgAdmin\ Development\ Team/pgAdmin\ 4.conf
I'm still getting segfault, and:
An error occurred initialising the application server:
Failed to locate pgAdmin4.py, terminating server thread.

AFAICS, creating the file above helped to solve this issue, at least I can say
that both modes work on CentOS 7.

Actuallly they are installed via -docs subpackage, but I forgot to add this as

Ok, fixed. Pushed to 9.6 testing repo:
yum --enablerepo pgdg96-updates-testing install pgadmin4 pgadmin4-web
(Packages will appear in next sync ;) )
Can you please test again?
