Description (last modified by ryandesign@…) (diff)
I have built Gramps. gtkspell2 was built before gnome-python-extras. When Gramps starts, it tries "import gtkspell", which fails.
Since I am using gtkspell, the python binding should be automatically installed.
The gnome-python-extras README file says:
When you run ./configure, the libraries available on the system (with respective header files) are automatically detected. If one module was not enabled while you expected it to be, try looking at the file config.log; it may provide some useful clues as to why detection failed.
Clearly detection failed because of the order of building.
I don't know whether this ticket should really be raised against Gramps or gtkspell instead, and I hesitate to even suggest possible approaches, but perhaps under MacPorts all the python modules in gnome-python-extras should be installed by default in case any are needed, or perhaps Gramps should be dependent on a variant of gnome-python-extras which itself is dependent on gtkspell2.
Please note that similar problems are likely to arise for Gramps with other modules in gnome-python-extras, once webkit-gtk builds under MacPorts for me #23464.
