Description Joaquim Uchoa 2012-08-15 13:40:56 UTC
I have Python 2.7 and Python 3.2 installed in several systems:
# eselect python list
Available Python interpreters:
  [1]   python2.7
  [2]   python3.2 *

If the default is with python3.2, then flumotion doesn't compile... 
with python2.7 is all ok. 

So ebuild should specify python2.7 to compile and use of flumotion.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. choose python2.7 as default with eselect
2. emerge flumotion

Actual Results:  
flumotion only compiles if admin has selected python2.7 as default.

Expected Results:  
flumotion should select python2.7 to compile process.

Maybe bug #391381 has the fix.
Also, the ebuild sets PYTHON_DEPEND=2:2.6, which I assume is the correct way to have it use python2, not 3.
Comment 2 Nico Baggus 2013-10-05 14:50:57 UTC
Well unless eselect python is used for python-2.7 it doesn't build .....

Resolved as part of work on bug #528538.
