Description Chip Turner 2003-01-21 23:25:09 EST
[root@threads root]# XAUTHORITY=/home/cturner/.Xauthority redhat-config-users
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/redhat-config-users.py", line 25, in ?
    import libuser
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/libusermodule.so: undefined
symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_AsUTF8String

looks like no other modules reference this symbol, just the shared lib for r-c-u.
Comment 1 Mihai Ibanescu 2003-01-22 10:58:34 EST
looks like libuser pygtk2 are all affected.
Rebuilding them to see if it helps.
Comment 2 Mihai Ibanescu 2003-01-22 11:27:26 EST
Confirmed that rebuilding libuser and pygtk2 solves the problem.
libxml2 is clean.

We'll probably have to find other packages that installed stuff under
/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/ and see if anything else is broken.
Comment 3 Chip Turner 2003-01-22 11:56:45 EST
nm will tell you if any other files have the symbol:

find /usr/lib/python2.2/ -name '*.so' | xargs nm | grep PyUnicodeUCS4_AsUTF8String

nothing else shows these on my 7.3 box; I think this may be the only one
Comment 4 Mihai Ibanescu 2003-01-22 12:53:31 EST
Right, but PyUnicodeUCS4_SetDefaultEncoding is another symbol that went away.
This showed up with pygtk2

Fix confirmed with python2-2.2.2-11.7.3 which should be going out as errata shortly.
