Package: python-mapnik
Version: 0.7.1-3
Severity: normal

The Python 2.5 version of the Python mapnik library does not work at all:

robin@arrow:~$ python2.5 -c 'import mapnik'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.5/mapnik/", line 522, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.5/mapnik/", line 512, in 
Boost.Python.ArgumentError: Python argument types in
did not match C++ signature:

The reason for this appears to be that the Python 2.5 version of the mapnik 
package is
linked against the Python 2.6 version of libboost_python:

robin@arrow:~$ ldd /usr/lib/pyshared/python2.5/mapnik/
    [...] => /usr/lib/ 

If this is manually overridden using LD_PRELOAD, the mapnik library then works 
with Python 2.5:

robin@arrow:~$ env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ python2.5 
-c 'import mapnik'
