Can you please give me an example of somethig that tries to link
against python? I am not sure I understand if the problem is in the
python package or in distutils or somewhere else.
Comment 2 rudolf kastl 2004-10-28 11:25:03 EDT
one example is the wolfpack ultima online emu. 

just configure it with using the python configure script for static
linking (dont enable mysql that triggers another bug in the current
mysql package. prob is fixed in rawhide).

linking then will fail. linking succeeds if -lutil is added. the
problem can be tracked back even to 7.x releases of redhat and only
seems to occur with us because -lutil for some magical reasons is
missing from the python flags.


hope this helps. if more input is required or another case to
reproduce it no problem just ask.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
