Description Michael Jennings (KainX) 2004-11-14 00:50:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute '_RPMVSF_NOSIGNATURES'

being recognized as valid attributes in the rpmmodule python module. 
This occurs on CentOS 3.3 with python 2.2.3, so it would seem to be
the subclassable wrapping which has caused the error, not python 2.4.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rpm-4.4-0.x
2. Run "yum update" on yum 2.0.x or 2.1.x
3. Blame jbj :-)

Additional info:

0936 <jbj[#cAos]> KainX: python-2.4 appears to enforce making symbols
that start with '_' opaque.
0937 <jbj[#cAos]> put the numeric value in, or -1 if you're too lazy
to look up the value, all the bits are disablers.
0950 <jbj[#cAos]> KainX: the other thing it might be is that rpmmodule
is now wrapped so that it can be subclassed. so perhaps the wrapping,
not python-2.4, is what enforce '_' symbols opaque.  bugzilla, and
I'll get you a fix. I've seen, I slammed in a -1, but I'm wrestling
python-2.4 problems too.

Commited a fix to rexport those symbols in wrapper

Thanks Paul.  That did the trick. :)
