Description M. B. 2012-07-12 15:03:17 UTC
The python detection mechanism in weechat is broken. This results the following message at startup of weechat:
15:52:40 =!= | Fehler: Kann Erweiterung "/usr/lib64/weechat/plugins/" nicht installieren: /usr/lib64/weechat/plugins/ undefined symbol: PyBytes_AsString

My system-python is set to 3.2 (via eselect); i still have python-2.7 installed.

My reasoning behind stating that their detection mechanism is broken:
ebuild /usr/portage/net-irc/weechat-0.3.8/weechat-0.3.8.ebuild unpack &&
cd /var/tmp/portage/net-irc/weechat-0.3.8/work/weechat-0.3.8 &&
cmake . -LA | grep -i python


Quickfix: eselect to python-2, emerge, then eselect back to python3. though probably python-updater will break it again upon next run.

PS: I will file a bug with weechat on savannah as well.

Reproducible: Always

I fixed weechat to compile the python plugin properly against a USE-flag chosen implementation of python.

Reassigning to @python as I myself don't have py3 anywhere and don't want to fck up anything.

Could anyone of you guys look on this and tell me what to do?
Comment 7 M. B. 2012-07-18 17:07:42 UTC
Update: upstream has fixed build in trunk to default to python2. Still there's no support in weechat's build system to choose for the python version except for my hack.
Comment 8 Tomáš Chvátal (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-08-21 13:26:41 UTC
Ok I updated live ebuild and 0.3.8 to always pick the python2 until decided otherwise.
Comment 9 Tomáš Chvátal (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-04-05 10:39:26 UTC
Marking as fixed for 4.0 (different fashion with python-single-r1).

Open a new bug if you find some problems with it please.
