Description Joe Orton 2007-06-26 07:27:01 UTC
Description of problem:
pyexpat.so embeds a statically linked copy of libexpat - this should either be:

1) fixed to use the system libexpat, or
2) fixed to not pollute the global namespace

Clashes for /usr/lib64/python2.4/lib-dynload/pyexpat.so:
  with /lib64/libexpat.so.0.5.0 => XML_Parse XML_SetExternalEntityRefHandler
(...75 symbols omitted...) XML_ParserCreate

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-06-26 23:22:31 UTC
Fixed for 2.5.1-3 to use system expat

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2007-06-27 14:05:38 UTC
This fix is broken. python no longer properly builds elementree; this breaks all
sorts of things.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-06-27 15:08:34 UTC
Ugh.  How nice of the build to continue even when things fail to build.  Fixed
and added something to help avoid that in the future
