Last modified: 2009-01-09 00:37:03 EST
Description of problem:
nautilus-python when used with python-2.5 doesn't work on x86_64.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use an arch where sizeof(ssize_t) != sizeof(int), like x86_64.
2. Try running any of the nautilus-python-devel examples
The nautilus extensions written in python are not actually loaded.
You can't find any of the additional context menu items etc.
The extensions actually get loaded.
see upstream 505594 with patch:
Thanks for the bug report. I will look into it asap.
Created attachment 299946 [details]
a patched SRPM
I just ran into this problem. I got the SRPM from the Fedora 9 repository and
the problem does not seem to be fixed. I just attached an SRPM that I made with
the patch posted here
This doesn't fix all of my problems with NautilusSVN (the nautilus-python
extension I want to use) but it does at least get it running.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
