Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2003-04-09 15:30:19 EDT
what was the upgrade to 9 from?

the module in question should be in the
package gnome-python2

can you verify that package is installed?

   rpm -q gnome-python2 

It is required by the up2date-gnome package, so
it should be there, but the error you quote
seems to indicate it is not. 

What mechanism was used to upgrade to 9?
Comment 2 Volker Meyer 2003-04-10 01:43:06 EDT
Hi,
upgrade was from RH8.0 to RH9.
-
[vmeyer@tassilo vmeyer]$rpm -V gnome-python2
[vmeyer@tassilo vmeyer]$rpm -q gnome-python2
gnome-python2-1.99.14-5
[vmeyer@tassilo vmeyer]$
-
Package appears to be correctly installed
-
The mechanism to upgarde was rpm in conjunction with up2date.
The "old" up2date was launched from the commandline with
"up2date -d up2date"
Several dependencies were checked and a few additional packages were downloaded.
I don't recall all of them, but all the packages in question were put in a
seperate folder from which the command 
rpm -Uvh *.rpm 
was issued.
Installation worked without errors.
Comment 3 Volker Meyer 2003-04-10 02:22:46 EDT
Meanwhile not even the commandline-version works.
I get the error:
-
[root@tassilo root]$up2date -l
There was an SSL error: [('SSL routines', 'SSL23_WRITE', 'ssl handshake failure')]
A common cause of this error is the system time being incorrect. Verify that the
time on this system is correct.
[root@tassilo root]$
-
I can set the time to whatever time I want. I can change the value of TZ to
whatever zone I please: I always get the error
-
Volker.
Comment 4 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2003-06-02 07:42:14 EDT
Removing security status - upgrading from 8.0 to 9 by just updating the rpms may
well have unexpected side effects.
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2004-01-20 10:36:01 EST
I had the same problem. 

A fix is to remove the "orphaned" directory
/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/gnome so that the right directory 
/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gnome gets used.

Also may need to update libbonobo. The one that came with RH8 was
missing a few files.
