Description Sam Varshavchik 2005-09-16 01:40:00 UTC
Description of problem:

The python bindings breaks on FC3 + all updates applied.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

$ python
Python 2.3.4 (#1, Feb  2 2005, 12:11:53)
[GCC 3.4.2 20041017 (Red Hat 3.4.2-6.fc3)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import vte

Actual results:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/gtk-2.0/vtemodule.so: undefined
symbol: pyg_set_object_has_new_constructor

Expected results:

The python binding to load.

Additional info:

Google suggests that vte is using an obsolete pygtk2 API, that has been removed
some time ago.

Can you please report this to upstream bugzilla.gnome.org too, and post the link

Oracle, I highly suggest that you investigate into this issue if you rely on
this feature for your product, as the newer upstream GNOME.org versions of vte
seem to be broken with vte python bindings.  This means it is currently broken
for RHEL5, and any users using FC3, FC4, or FC5 with Oracle.

I suggest emulating the debian solution if possible,
ie. rm python/vte.c and rebuild.

Hi, this seems to be fixed with vte-0.11.16 and pygtk 2.8
