Description tengel 2007-06-09 16:54:17 UTC
NOTE: there is no 'Democracy' component, assigning to dbus-python since it's the
related package causing the error.

Description of problem:

Attempting to run/start democracyplayer crashes on startup with a TypeError in
the dbus-python bindings.

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

Democracy-0.9.5.1-8.fc7
dbus-python-0.80.2-3.fc7

How reproducible:

Consistently.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install Democracy
2. democracyplayer
3.
  
Actual results:

/usr/bin/democracyplayer:81: DeprecationWarning: The dbus_bindings module is
deprecated and will go away soon.

dbus-python 0.80 provides only a partial emulation of the old
dbus_bindings, which was never meant to be public API.

Most uses of dbus_bindings are applications catching the exception
dbus.dbus_bindings.DBusException. You should use dbus.DBusException
instead (this is compatible with all dbus-python versions since 0.40.2).

If you need additional public API, please contact the maintainers via
<dbus@lists.freedesktop.org>.

  import dbus_bindings

    retval = dbus.dbus_bindings.bus_request_name(bus.get_connection(), name,

TypeError: request_name() takes no keyword arguments

Expected results:

Unknown, never used Democracy before. I would assume some sort of GUI window
like in the screenshots. :)

Additional info:

A full rpm -Va was run to ensure there were no dependency problems known.
Additionally, 'yum upgrade' was run to ensure the latest available components
across the board.

Comment 1 Laurent Rineau 2007-06-14 09:49:22 UTC
I confirm the bug.

Same arch (i386). My rpm versions are identical:
  Democracy-0.9.5.1-8.fc7
  dbus-python-0.80.2-3.fc7
    (and python-2.5-12.fc7)


Comment 2 Joshua Daniel Franklin 2007-06-14 18:44:14 UTC
This closed ticket (with patches) at the Democracy trac site makes 
me think that the problem may be solved in 0.9.6:

https://develop.participatoryculture.org/trac/democracy/ticket/5645


Comment 3 David Zeuthen 2007-06-14 20:16:26 UTC
Reassigning to distribution until there's an appropriate bug component.
