Description Ville Skyttä 2004-07-10 19:31:27 EDT
Ethereal installs some Python stuff into
/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages, where 2.2 is hardcoded, and we have
2.3 already.  Will attach a patch against current rawhide.

Note: in order to produce expected results when/if this fix is applied
and the resulting package built on 64-bit archs, bug 125472 should be
fixed first.

On the other hand, the installed python files look like ethereal
development files, and depend on omniidl from omniORB, which AFAICS
isn't available in Fedora Core; so perhaps the python files could just
be dropped altogether...

*** Bug 122058 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2004-07-14 10:49:42 EDT
OK, despite omniidl from omniORB not being in Fedore Core i fixed the
installation, maybe someone installs those package manually and hopes
ethereal to work with the python modules. ;-)

Fixed in ethereal-0.10.5-2 and later available via development.

Read ya, Phil
