Description of problem:
(bonobo) activation.so module for python not in same place as rh 8.0, this
appears to cause difficulty with hwbrowser; may be serious problem for other
python/gtk dependent packages (up2date?), since it appears the parent path has
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to RH 8.0
2. cd /usr/lib/python2.2; find . -name "activation*" -print
3. Login to RH Phoebe
4. cd /usr/lib/python2.2; find . -name "activation*" -print
RH 8.0 has:
Expected Results: Expect phoebe's install to resemble RH 8.0 for python and
associated modules. Or, at least, that you can call the included modules for
python in phoebe without having python dependent apps blow up.
Force installed gnome-python2-bonobo-1.99.11-8.i386.rpm for RH 8.0 into Phoebe.
Not pretty, but fixes python/bonobo problems in Phoebe. (hwbrowser runs
nicely, help text for bonobo module inside python interpreter now very
informative, etc., etc.)
Just in case: Phoebe installed as upgrade from RH 8.0.
Retrieved this rpm from:
So sorry! Don't install that rpm from 8.0 on your phoebe! The quick fix worked
while I was logged in, but on logging out, it caused more problems, including
GUI login hang. (Apparently the GUI calls bonobo on login?) Removed the 8.0
rpm and put back the others from phoebe.
