Description pogosyan 1999-11-05 02:46:55 UTC
I use FortyTwo.py script from

It worked find under RH5.2 but fails with segmentaion fault
in PyDict_New() after upgrade to RH6.0. This persists after
I upgraded to python-1.5.2-7 from RH6.1
GDB trace follows. What is interesting, the program works
fine if I download python-1.5.2-7.src.rpm and compile it
manually, enabling Tcl/Tk support

GDB output

(gdb) run

I have no vgetty settup, but I do have a question first: have you tried
using the gtk widget set instead of the tk widget set?

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 1999-12-20 21:00:59 UTC
Please see if this is fixed in python-1.5.2-9 or later from RawHide, and let me
know either way.

This is bound to have been fixed by now.
