Description Vincent Untz 2009-05-28 14:15:36 UTC
Latest gdl removed some API from the public API and now the python bindings fail to compile.

The patch seems to work.  I'm surprised that there doesn't seem to have been a release since 2/2009.
Comment 3 Aliaksandr Stelmachonak 2009-10-16 20:55:25 UTC
This patch is not enough - after applying it compilation succeed, but while performing import gdl in python, you still will have exceptions. So, you need another additional patch (find attached). After applying both you will have workable installation.

Checked this pair of patches - they work, thanks!
Comment 6 Emilio Pozuelo Monfort 2010-04-23 17:17:18 UTC
The last patch (145634) hasn't been committed.
Comment 7 Yaakov Selkowitz 2011-12-05 04:50:06 UTC
Development of the static Python bindings has ceased,

The last gnome-python-extras code changes took place in April 2011:

This project is not under active development anymore.

This project got recently archived in GNOME Git.

It is currently unlikely that there will be any further active development.

Closing this report as WONTFIX as part of Bugzilla Housekeeping to reflect reality. Please feel free to reopen this bug report in the future if anyone takes the responsibility for active development again. If you are interested in maintainership, inform

gnome-python-extras wrapped application and library API in GNOME 2. For Python in GNOME 3, see and its gobject-introspection approach.
