Enhanced version of pythondeps.sh which detects the version of Python with which .py[co] files were built and adds the needed "python(abi) = ..." dependency none

Description Nils Philippsen 2010-08-11 16:36:59 UTC
Created attachment 438224 [details]
Enhanced version of pythondeps.sh which detects the version of Python with which .py[co] files were built and adds the needed "python(abi) = ..." dependency

Description of problem:
Recently, all packages requiring "python(abi) = 2.6" were rebuilt for Python 2.7. Unfortunately, this left out all packages that don't have files in the Python standard module paths. As bug #621726 shows, python modules not in the standard paths will let the new python version attempt to rebuild them which fails due to SELinux policy, if run as root and policy is enforced (which is the right thing to do). If not run as root, startup time of the affected programs might be longer than necessary because python can't simply use the pre-built .py[co] files. In my opinion, the affected packages should simply have the "python(abi) = ..." dependency as well (since the shipped pre-built .py[co] files depend on it). I'll attach a version of /usr/lib/pythondeps.sh which generates such a dependency if .py[co] files are in a package.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-0:4.8.1-5.fc15.x86_64
rpm-build-0:4.8.1-5.fc15.x86_64

How reproducible:
Reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:
A.1.) Install an affected version of e.g. system-config-firewall (1.2.25-1.fc14 from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=168786 will do)
A.2.) Run it.

B) rpm -q --provides system-config-firewall | grep 'python(abi)'

  
Actual results:
A) SELinux alerts, as described in bug #621726
B) nothing

Expected results:
A) No SELinux alerts.
B) "python(abi) = ..."

Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2010-08-12 09:52:45 UTC
To really work with Python 2.7, this needs file to be patched to recognize byte-compiled files generated by Python 2.7. See bug #623602.

Comment 2 Orcan Ogetbil 2010-08-13 03:13:02 UTC
But I don't think that is sufficient, as far as I can tell, 
   /usr/lib/rpm/pythondeps.sh 
does not use file to determine python(abi) type dependencies. Or is this caught by some other script?

Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2010-08-13 05:20:32 UTC
The internal dependency generator which eventually calls pythondeps.sh and the like does uses libmagic (ie file) to figure file types, so fixing file does help.

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-16 16:51:32 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

Could you provide more information? The issue in file has been fixed however you reopened the bug. Is this issue somewhere else then?

Comment 6 Panu Matilainen 2012-08-17 06:57:57 UTC
File getting fixed was a pre-requisite for fixing this on rpm-side. It's the rpm-side of things that still hasn't been fixed (as I had pretty much forgotten the whole thing).

Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 19:56:18 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 21:44:59 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 9 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-18 13:27:54 UTC
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
bug.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
