RE: Problems using the Python bindings with Trac on SuSE 9.1

In response to Matthew's earlier comments...

obligatory Homer Simpson reference: mmm. Beer.

A fine idea, although what with a few hours of sanity still required of me, binge drinking might go over less well.. And in spite of living in the region proclaimed as "the world's best source of pot", I tend to avoid the stuff myself. :)

On to CMP's question:

>> Can you verify that the _[fs|client|wc|...].la and friends were built

I'm not 100% sure what I _should_ be seeing, so here's the output of running "find . -iname '_*\.la'" in my source dir:

./subversion/bindings/swig/python/_delta.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/.libs/_delta.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/.libs/_core.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/.libs/_fs.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/.libs/_ra.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/.libs/_wc.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/.libs/_repos.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/.libs/_client.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/_core.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/_fs.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/_ra.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/_wc.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/_repos.la
./subversion/bindings/swig/python/_client.la

Damn. That would be really boneheaded... although given that the SuSE installer initially saw fit _not_ to install a whole swath of development-related tools and libraries even after being explicitly asked to do so, somehow it wouldn't surprise me, either.

Scratch that.. I just checked and the python-devel package is installed...

Cheers,
