Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 192592
python installed with active assertions
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:33 EST
Description of problem:
Building python's RPM package doesn't honore ./configure calculated compiler
Although configured without debugging flags, rpmbuild manages to loose -DNDEBUG
option from compiler's command line i.e. in production version of python, there
are still active assertions.
It wouldn't be much a problem (except performance, of course), but it overlaps
with python's bug that can cause python extension modules to crash. See http://
