Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2002:202 normal SHIPPED_LIVE : Updated python packages fix predictable temporary file 2002-09-12 04:00:00 UTC

Description Chip Turner 2003-01-22 04:25:09 UTC
[root@threads root]# XAUTHORITY=/home/cturner/.Xauthority redhat-config-users
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/", line 25, in ?
    import libuser
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/ 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 15:58:34 UTC
looks like libuser pygtk2 are all affected.
Rebuilding them to see if it helps.

Comment 2 Mihai Ibanescu 2003-01-22 16:27:26 UTC
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 16:56:45 UTC
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 17:53:31 UTC
Right, but PyUnicodeUCS4_SetDefaultEncoding is another symbol that went away.
This showed up with pygtk2
