Description Christopher Stone 2006-12-17 12:41:26 EST
In FC5 gobject was built into the gtk module, now in FC6 gobject has been
seperated out into the pygobject2 rpm.  The gtk module in FC6 no longer supports
a gobject and gtk2reactor.py needs to be patched to accomodate this.

I am not sure on if this file has been fixed in FC7, but I know for a fact that
it is broken in FC6.

Please see attached patch.  To demonstrate what has changed try:

import gtk

on FC5 the above script will indicate it is included, in FC6+ an error occurs. 
The patch I have attached fixes python-twisted for FC6+ in this regard.  Please
communicate to upstream and apply updates to Fedora FC6, as I need this patch
for a package I am about to submit for review.

the patch is probably not acceptable upstream since it will not be

A better approach is probably to hide away the difference by trying to import
either gobject or gtk._gobject as a "gobject" global and then keep the code as is.

That sounds good to me.  My python is very rusty so I'm not sure how to do such
a patch.

This problem seems to be fixed in python-twisted-core package.

Closing bug, if there is any reason why this bug should not be closed, then
reopen explaining why or add a dependency.
