Description John D Maunder 2009-07-09 21:23:25 UTC
running python - use idle
help() - looks to run ok
help> modules math

error is produced (see Actual Results)

This happens because pyopengl is emerged. If you unmerge pyopengl then help runs as expected. Pyopengl is emerged because of opengl use flag? Which is needed for other packages.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. idle
2. help()
3. modules math (or any other modules)

Actual Results:  
In idle

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>

Expected Results:
