Problem starting (Symbol error in sip.so)

Reported by Frosch | June 1st, 2011 @ 09:24 PM


when trying to start musicguru, I get the following message:

$ musicguru Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/musicguru", line 13, in

import sip

ImportError: /usr/local/share/musicguru/sip.so: undefined symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_AsLatin1String

The symbol seems indeed to be defined in python3:

$ objdump -T /usr/bin/python3 | grep PyUnicodeUCS4_AsLatin1String 0000000000448a00 g DF .text 000000000000003c Base PyUnicodeUCS4_AsLatin1String

so I'm not sure whether it's a musicguru or a python problem.

System is (at a very recent update level):

$ uname -sr Linux 2.6.38-8-generic
$ cat /etc/debian_version squeeze/sid

Could you please help to fix this? Thanks in advance!

    It's a packaging problem. Since Ubuntu 10.04 didn't ship with PyQt for python3, I had to ship the binaries with musicguru. If that doesn't work, you have to build musicguru from source on your machine.
