From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Fedora/1.0.6-1.2.fc3 Firefox/1.0.6 Description of problem: NO dependency conflicts showing. everything installed from apt rpm repos for fc3. running any python program causes crash with tracebacks like: ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/<some library.so>: undefined symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_<something> Looks like these add-on libraries are somehow incompatible with the python interpreter installed. Dunno how this happened. Note to developers: You have my full cooperation. If this is a packaging problem, please let me know what I can do to help fix it (email@example.com). I really need python to be working. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): python-2.3.4-13.1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Execute any python program (eg, Bram Cohen's bittorrent client) 2. It crashes with errors of the type mentioned above 3. Actual Results: crash: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/bittorrent", line 32, in ? import gtk File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/PIL/__init__.py", line 33, in ? ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gobject.so: undefined symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_AsUnicode Expected Results: application should have started Additional info:

This is actually something that we've fixed in FC4

(In reply to comment #1) > This is actually something that we've fixed in FC4 Erm, here's the wierd thing. There is a bug in fc4 installer that causes it to crash whenever I try to install it. I tried the "garbage' fix in: https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2005-June/msg03392.html . It started the installer, but it crashed whenever I tried to upgrade. Screenshots of tty's at the time of the crash are here: http://www.ph.utexas.edu/~daneel/photoalbum/KIPIHTMLExport/mem1/index.html Is there any possibility that this can be fixed in fc3?
Comment 3 Mihai Ibanescu 2005-09-30 15:20:09 UTC
Very unlikely for this to be backported to fc3, mostly because it requires significant packaging changes.
