From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-2 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
The rpm installs files into /usr/lib/python2.3, although since Fedora Core 4 uses python 2.4 they should perhaps be installed into /usr/lib/python2.4.

Applications that try to import the gst module will fail:

ImportError: No module named gst

Are you saying gstreamer-python is in FC4test2 ?

Comment 3 Jacob Kroon 2005-04-28 13:09:50 UTC
Well, it is in Fedora Extras Development, which I assume will sometime fork off
into Fedora Extras 4. Fedora Extras Development _is_ enabled by default in
FC4test2, so "yum install gstreamer-python" works, and therefore I assumed it is
really a bug for FC4 Extras.

Requesting rebuild of current version in CVS (0.8.1-3) should fix this. Seems,
the previous rebuild for Rawhide has never made it and the binary in the
repository is still the copied FC3 binary.

Comment 7 Thorsten Leemhuis 2005-05-11 10:52:43 UTC
During fixing x86_64 for FC3-extras I also fixed the the devel-version and
requested a rebuild of gstreamer-python; It failed:

Main Error:
xmlto --skip-validation -o /usr/src/rpm/BUILD/gst-python-0.8.1/docs -m
./common.xsl -m ./full.xsl -m ./html.xsl xhtml-nochunks README.xml
ELinks: No such file or directory

Anyone any idea what's wrong there? It builds fine on mx x86_64 FC4T3 (but I
have not yet a mach with FC4T3 to look for missing BuildRequires). If no one has
a idea I'll probably look at it again next week.

Comment 8 Michael Schwendt 2005-05-11 12:09:39 UTC
All the "Could not write method..." and "Could not write function..." messages
during %build (see log) are scary at least, e.g.:

Could not write method GstEvent.discont_get_value: No ArgType for 'gint64*'
Could not write method GstPlugin.get_module: No ArgType for 'GModule*'
Could not write method GstPlugin.feature_filter: No ArgType for


i386 rebuild on Rawhide ends with:

xmlto --skip-validation -o /home/misc/tmp/rpm/BUILD/gst-python-0.8.1/docs -m
./common.xsl -m ./full.xsl -m ./html.xsl xhtml-nochunks README.xml
No way to convert HTML to text found.

That was with "sudo rpm -e elinks --nodeps", which breaks gstreamer-python's
"BuildRequires: links". The "ELinks: no such file or directory" error smells a
bit like it's from that area, too. Maybe it tries to load style sheets from the

Well, the FC-3 Version (nearly the same Spec) compiled fine in the build-system... 

Comment 10 Michael Schwendt 2005-05-11 14:01:35 UTC
Well, FC3 != FC4, elinks-0.9.2-2.1 != elinks-0.10.3-1, and "strings
/usr/bin/elinks  | grep ELinks" gives many (!) hits. Suspicious... ;)

Comment 11 Jacob Kroon 2005-05-23 13:30:38 UTC
Using the latest release gstreamer-python-0.8.1-6, everything seems to work fine
again. In general, whose job is it to mark the bug as closed ?
