Description of problem:
Please upgrade python 2.2.1 to 2.2.2

2.2.1 contains some nasty bugs, that under some circumstances, can cause a
segfault. Distributing 3rd party products, that expose this bug, to RH8.0 users
will be a pain otherwise :-P

It's a bugfix only release, so please upgrade.

Comment 1 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-10-15 19:43:05 UTC
Do you have examples of ways 2.2.1 is broken? If there are compelling reasons to
release python, sure, will do.

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-11-12 20:37:42 UTC
Haven't check, if this really got fixed in Python 2.2.2, but if your file
contains non-english UTF-8 characters ...

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-11-12 21:06:29 UTC
This _thread_ describes a bug in 2.2.1, that does happen in RH8.0 python2.2.2 
too. It causes python to segfault. 
Other problems with 2.2.1 are here; 

Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-11-12 21:07:31 UTC
Happens in that does happen in RH8.0 python2.2.1, not 2.2.2

Comment 5 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-11-25 22:02:12 UTC
Not exactly the same thing, but rawhide should have 2.2.2 packages available.
Until rawhide catches up, here's a link where you can test these pacakges:


Comment 6 Jack Moffitt 2002-11-26 05:27:20 UTC
Python 2.2.2 also includes enhanced MIME handling in the email package of the
standard library that is not in 2.2.1.  I've already run into a program that
failed to run on RH8.0 because of this.  Specifically it imported the
email.MIMEMultipart module, which is new in 2.2.2.

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2006-08-04 20:36:56 UTC
Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Powertools are currently no longer supported by Red
Hat, Inc. In an effort to clean up bugzilla, we are closing all bugs in MODIFIED
state for these products.

However, we do want to make sure that nothing important slips through the
cracks. If, in fact, these issues are not resolved in a current Fedora Core
Release (such as Fedora Core 5), please open a new issues stating so. Thanks.
