Description Patrick 2005-06-25 16:53:00 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
When starting a python app like yumex I get the following error:
[root@srv12 ~]# yumex
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "yumex.py", line 23, in ?
  File "yumWrapper.py", line 26, in ?
"/usr/src/build/535819-i386/install/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py", line 37, in ?
RuntimeError: could not open display

Looks like pygtk2 was built with the %{buildroot} prepended in hardcoded
paths. pygtk2 version is 2.6.0-2 on FC4. The Xlib error is solved with Alexander Dalloz's suggestion to do xhost +local:root before starting yumex. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start yumex
2. read error message/traceback

Actual Results:  Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "yumex.py", line 23, in ?
  File "yumWrapper.py", line 26, in ?
"/usr/src/build/535819-i386/install/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py", line 37, in ?

Expected Results:  no traceback, yumex starts properly

patch for pygtk2-2.6.0-2

The buildroot in the compiled Python files has nothing to do with your display

But the fix is attached. Upstream ought to update py-compile and use --destdir

I was able to start yumex successfully with the current pygtk2 release (2.10.3),
so I'm closing this bug.  Please feel free to reopen it if you still encounter
the reported problem.
