Summary: [python] pip installed binding fails to find correct
Project: Qpid Proton
Issue Type: Bug
Affects Versions: 0.9.1
Reporter: Ken Giusti
Assignee: Ken Giusti
Fix For: 0.10
The latest versions of pip keeps a cache of downloaded packages. It also
caches the results of any extensions built for those packages. When a user
tries to re-install (or install in a different virtualenv) a previously build
package, the pre-built package is pulled from the cache and plopped into place.
Which is all great and fast...
... unless your extension also builds a shared library (libqpid-proton) and
sets its RPATH to it.
This ends up with a cached _cproton.so with a RPATH pointing to the directory
where the libqpid-proton.so was installed. Woe be you if that was a virtualenv
that you deleted (or updated).
This results in either "libqpid-proton.so not found" errors when importing the
bindings, or symbol mismatches if the library was overwritten.
