Description of problem:
when trying to up2date i receive:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 28, in ?
    from up2date_client import up2date
  File "up2date.py", line 36, in ?
  File "depSolver.py", line 4, in ?
  File "packageList.py", line 17, in ?
  File "up2dateComps.py", line 7, in ?

    import libxml2
  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/libxml2.py", line 1, in ?
    import libxml2mod
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/libxml2mod.so: undefined

I've update manually up2date and libxml2* (checked with rpm -V) but
nothing changes... Only 2 boxes on that network have this problem
(updated to v3 the same day), other boxes works perfectly

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
up2date-4.2.38-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.up2date -u
2.
3.
    

Actual Results:  Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 28, in ?
    from up2date_client import up2date
  File "up2date.py", line 36, in ?
  File "depSolver.py", line 4, in ?
  File "packageList.py", line 17, in ?
  File "up2dateComps.py", line 7, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/comps.py", line 5, in ?
    import libxml2
  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/libxml2.py", line 1, in ?
    import libxml2mod
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/libxml2mod.so: undefined
symbol: xmlNewTextReaderFilename

Expected Results:  updating some packages (other machines on the same
network do it)

Comment 2 Clifford Perry 2006-03-17 02:37:19 UTC
The most likely cause of this is a modified /etc/ld.so.conf file such that you
are loading a 3rd party version of the libxml libraries over the default Red Hat
supplied ones.

Cliff.
