Comment 3 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-31 07:11:35 UTC
You still didn't tell us which quodlibet version is this about...

This doesn't look like a quodlibet problem. It looks like an upgrade/change in a package gstreamer uses might have caused the problem. Please run "revdep-rebuild" (provided by the gentoolkit package) and then "emerge gstreamer flac gst-plugins-flac gst-python". If that doesn't fix the problem, please re-open this bug and include a list of which version of quodlibet, gst-plugins-flac, gst-python, flac, and gst-python you have installed.
Comment 5 A. Person 2006-05-31 09:51:49 UTC
I ran revdep-rebuild which re-emerged 4 gst related packages and re-emerged gstreamer, flac, gst-plugins-flac, and gst-python but I have the same results.

Comment 6 Thomas Cort (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-05-31 10:23:59 UTC
I'm reassigning this to gstreamer@g.o as the problem appears to be in
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/gst-0.10/gst/ and

gstreamer team, please take a look at this. If it isn't a gstreamer related problem, please assign the bug back to me, thanks.
Comment 7 A. Person 2006-06-19 17:49:43 UTC
Any ideas here guys?
Comment 8 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-06-20 06:20:21 UTC
I think it's libxslt libxml-2 python bindings being out of sync or something. Rebuilding those (libxml and then libxslt) might solve this.
Comment 9 A. Person 2006-06-20 16:47:35 UTC
I re-emerged those packages and quodlibet acts the same way.  I would really appreciate any other ideas you have.  I'll try anything.
Comment 10 Zaheer Abbas Merali (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-06-21 20:20:22 UTC
Please try this:

USE=python emerge libxml

Then see if it works, if not:

re-emerge gst-python
Comment 11 A. Person 2006-06-22 15:24:40 UTC
Same situation.  libxml doesn't have a python USE flag by the way.  Any other possibilities?
Comment 12 Zaheer Abbas Merali (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-06-23 04:01:30 UTC
Sorry, i meant libxml2 where i said libxml!
Comment 13 A. Person 2006-06-23 12:18:37 UTC
I already had python in make.conf but I went ahead and did it anyway with the same results.  Anything else?
Comment 14 A. Person 2006-10-20 12:37:46 UTC
I'm using Banshee now.
