Comment 1 Daniel Veillard 2004-03-11 08:09:33 EST
The install path for the python module will depend on the
version of python libxml2 was built against. The package you
installed was built against Python-2.2 . You have Python 2.3
installed. The simplest is to rebuild the libxml2 package
from source. Dynamically trying to install in 2.3 if compiled
agaisnt 2.2 is just a good way to break the installation in
a nasty way, this should not be done.

Comment 2 Christian Ashby 2004-03-11 08:14:35 EST
Apologies, I may not have assigned this to the correct module; I've
therefore reassigned to distribution as the versions of libxml2 and
python(2.3) installed with the FC2-test1 distribution are compiled as
I described, and so up2date is broken after an upgrade from FC1.

I'm well aware that the installation path shouldn't be copied across,
it was just a quick fix to get up2date back up and running again.

libxml2-2.6.9-1 coming soon in rawhide solves this issue, it is built
against FC2 latest.
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2004-04-19 04:29:12 EDT
oops, I was wrong, libxml2-2.6.8 already fixed this.
