Comment 1 Dave Malcolm 2006-07-27 13:28:12 EDT
OK, looks like the recent at-spi needs a recent atk, but this isn't expressed in
the RPM metadata.

I was using:  
which didn't provide the necessary symbol.

Updating to atk-1.12.1-2 fixed it.  This isn't expressed in the RPM metadata;
should the so-number of libatk have been bumped?
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2006-07-27 14:36:31 EDT
looks like a pyspi problem to me; at-spi source does not contain 
Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2006-07-27 16:16:42 EDT
It's not a pyspi problem, it's a dep/version issue of at-spi on atk: a symbol
was added to atk without bumping the so-number.  Hence if you had the newer
at-spi that used the symbol without upgrading atk, at-spi would be unusable.

Fixed by using the most recent version of everything in rawhide, so probably
closable as RAWHIDE
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2006-07-27 16:20:44 EDT
No, as I said, at-spi in rawhide is not using that symbol. Anyway, closed.
