"import pygsl" causes segmentation fault
Last modified: 2011-03-23 18:57:13 EDT
Description of problem:
Importing pygsl in python gives segmentation fault.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
pygsl-0.9.5-1.fc13.i686 and gsl-1.13-2.fc13.i686
I only have one FC13 system in a VMware environment. It was always reproducible in that system.
Steps to Reproduce:
python -c 'import pygsl'
It seems that pygsl.init wasn't able to load.
I installed the newer build, pygsl-0.9.5-2.fc14.i686 and gsl-1.14-1.fc14.i686 from rawhide, and the problem is gone. Not sure if the problem was with gsl or pygsl.
hmm, rawhide now moves to Python 2.7, and the trick to use the rawhide pygsl doesn't work any more (otherwise yum will try to replace all the python packages). Is it possible to issue an update to Fedora 13? Thanks.
You are right, it crashes for me as well as soon as I import pygsl, the backtrace I get is:
#0 0x0000000000000000 in ?? ()
#1 0x00007ffff0bfe54f in initinit () from /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/pygsl/init.so
I suspect that the problem is with pygsl.
Recompiling the rpm is enough to make the problem go away.
Right now I am trapped inside a proxy so I can't fix the problem. I will do it as soon as possible.
Thanks for the report.
Nice. Could you recompile the rpm for both x86_64 and i686? Thanks.
pygsl-0.9.5-2.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
Oops, it looks like I forgot this report. My bad. :-(
I have built a new version for Fedora 13,
and I have request a push to updates.
Thank you for the report.
pygsl-0.9.5-2.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
