Description Joe Orton 2007-06-26 03:27:01 EDT
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 19:22:31 EDT
Fixed for 2.5.1-3 to use system expat
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2007-06-27 10:05:38 EDT
This fix is broken. python no longer properly builds elementree; this breaks all
sorts of things.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-06-27 11:08:34 EDT
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
