Description Roby 2008-04-03 23:41:32 UTC
When USE="python" is enabled when emerging app-editors/gedit-2.22.0, gedit failed to find python. Here's the relevant error log:

I suppose you have python 2.3 installed as well ? Please paste your emerge --info.

Comment 3 Roby 2008-04-15 22:56:30 UTC
This is also the case with gedit-2.22.1.
Comment 4 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2008-04-19 22:39:38 UTC
you have python 2.5 on a stable box, please make sure you ran python-updater.
Comment 5 Roby 2008-04-21 19:14:12 UTC
I already did. Still the same result.
Comment 6 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2008-04-25 09:55:31 UTC
Maybe unrelated but you should also update your profile, I use 2007.0 with no problem at all ;-)
Comment 7 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2008-04-30 08:28:47 UTC
in fact, I can now reproduce this bug by using libtool-2.2.2. This is probably due to the fact that the check in question directly calls libtool and arguments changed.

Here is the excerpt of


        dnl FIXME: do we really need this test?
        AC_MSG_CHECKING([whether we can build a shared library depending on libpython])
        rm -rf testpython
        mkdir testpython
        cd testpython
        cat > testpython.c <<EOF
#include <Python.h>
int testpython (void)
Py_Exit (0);

        if /bin/sh ../libtool --mode=compile ${CC} $PYTHON_CFLAGS -c testpython.c >/dev/null 2>&1 && \
                /bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link ${CC} -o -rpath `pwd` -module -avoid-version -no-undefined $PYTHON_LIB_LOC testpython.lo $PYTHON_LIBS $PYTHON_EXTRA_LIBS >/dev/null 2>&1 && \
                grep 'dlname.*testpython' >/dev/null 2>&1; then
        cd ..
        rm -rf testpython


imho it's safe for us to remove the check. @herd, what do you think ?
Comment 8 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2008-04-30 08:51:27 UTC
or use something like this before :

Comment 9 Rahul Jain 2008-05-08 21:19:15 UTC
Downgrade to the stable version of libtool (1.5.26), then emerge gentoo, then upgrade your libtool again. Works for me.
Comment 10 Sergey Ilinykh 2008-05-09 06:05:05 UTC
Rémi Cardona, thanks
your solution works fine :-)
Comment 11 Rahul Jain 2008-05-09 08:08:25 UTC
Hmm, Just realized that in stead of mentioning emerge gedit I mentioned emerge gentoo. :)
Comment 12 Roby 2008-05-09 19:15:11 UTC
@Rémi Cardona, where would you put that "m4_ifdef([LT_OUTPUT],[LT_OUTPUT])" line?
Comment 13 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2008-05-10 00:51:39 UTC
(In reply to comment #12)

Right after AC_PROG_LIBTOOL, but if you can wait "just" a little bit longer, I'll take care of it in the morning.
Comment 14 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2008-05-10 18:28:33 UTC
Done in cvs without a revbump.
