Description

The python module of gexiv2 fails to load both in python 2.7 and python 3.6 with an AttributeError:

I am seeing this error with Gramps 5.1.3:

gi.repository.GLib.GError: g-invoke-error-quark: Could not locate gexiv2_initialize: dlopen(./gexiv2/libgexiv2.2.dylib, 9): image not found (1)

On my system, the relevant library is at:

$ locate libgexiv2.2.dylib
/opt/local/lib/libgexiv2.2.dylib

so it appears that it is trying to load from the wrong location, perhaps.

That looks like a temporary path used during the build/test phase that never was overwritted when installed.

If it is related to gobject-introspection, and it looks like it is, there have been many changes in that setup/PG/software over the past year. You might try rebuilding gexiv2 and/or gramps (or both, in that order) from source and see what happens.

I have rebuilt gexiv2 with no improvement. I'll try rebuilding gramps but it seems unlikely to fix the problem. I'll also try forcing a local build of gobject-introspection. (BTW, I migrated to this machine, with a new OS, in February 2021.)

Weirdly, I installed gramps on another older machine and it does not exhibit these problems.

There seem to have been a variety of tickets over the past half year (?) concerning gobject-introspection and g-ir-scanner in particular. Is there one that has a good summary of the problems and the current state of our fixes?

Not really. It's a collection of python code with linker assumptions done by people who don't primarily use macOS.

Even trying to debug it is a huge headache.
