I'm not sure why you're taking offense? I'm not griping, I'm merely
reporting something fishy. as shipped and packaged by Fedora
tries to access _pycdio.CDTEXT_ARRANGER which is simply not there.
_pycdio is built using swig.

As I'd find it hard to believe that this would actually be a bug in your
releases that went uncaught so far, I'm showing it to the list in case
anyone knows
a) what the name of the symbol is supposed to be in _pycdio
b) whether is importing it wrong, or whether swig on Fedora
Rawhide is building _pycdio wrong.

If the list is not for sharing problems using libcdio, feel free to let
me know.

I went through all those threads again just now.  I am assuming you are
referring to:

It doesn't mention changes in the header symbols, or any other clues as
to what may be wrong in pycdio or _pycdio.

Before I originally mailed I had grepped the list archive for
CDTEXT_FIELD and it came up empty.  Maybe that's not enough due
diligence before mailing?

Sure.  I'm a maintainer too.  You're now using your own public forum for
griping :) Everyone knows that it's hard to have people and packagers
test (which is precisely why I became a packager of my own stuff in the
first place).  It sounds like you are frustrated about this, which I can
understand.  Just as I am frustrated that I did not have a crystal ball
that said that CDText changes (which I do not use myself) would cause my
limited use of pycdio to break.  I'm not griping, I'm actively trying to
report bugs and at the same time figure out what's going on.

As soon as I can figure out what I'm supposed to be fixing in my code, I
will! After catching up on sleep, I will try and figure out why as shipped cannot find symbols in



Ok, either I'm borrowing all your albums or I'm moving in.
