Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-09-10 16:23:22 EDT
Description of problem:

After an update to system-config-printer-0.6.142-1 one sees from
/etc/init.d/cups which runs on a startup:

Starting cups: Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/printconf-backend", line 7, in ?
    import backend
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/backend.py", line 42, in ?
    import rhpl.ethtool
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhpl/ethtool.so: undefined symbol:

Interestingly enough after that a status is reported as "OK".

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

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2005-09-11 06:20:56 EDT
What version of rhpl?
Comment 2 Daniel Malmgren 2005-09-11 06:27:45 EDT
I can confirm this. I started getting it after upgrading rhpl to 0.170-1, using
the same s-c-p as Michal.
Comment 3 bastiaan 2005-09-11 16:46:07 EDT
system-config-network fails to startup because of the same missing symbol:
system-config-network-1.3.26-1 with rhpl-0.167-1 is OK, with  rhpl-0.170-1 it says:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/system-config-network-gui", line 64, in ?
    from netconfpkg.NC_functions import log

Comment 4 Jonathan Kamens 2005-09-12 00:30:35 EDT
Changing status -- seems like requested info was provided.
This is happening to me too, with rhpl 0.170-1 and system-config-printer 0.6.142-1.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2005-09-12 10:52:52 EDT
The ethtool module is calling private functions that seem to be gone in newer iwlib

Created attachment 118734 [details]
call iw_saether_ntop() instead of iw_pr_ether()

According to the changelog, the iw_pr_ether() function was renamed to
iw_saether_ntop(), and expects arguments in a different order.
Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2005-09-12 23:06:11 EDT
Thanks Nalin -- applied and building
