    Hi everybody,

    I have an undefined reference when I try to start Boa:

    $$python2.4 boa-constructor-0.4.0/Boa.py
    Starting Boa Constructor v0.4.0
    importing wxPython
    reading user preferences
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "boa-constructor-0.4.0/Boa.py", line 257, in ?
        import Preferences, Utils
      File "/local/app/lib/python2.4/boa-constructor-0.4.0/Preferences.py", line 136, in ?
        execfile(file)
      File "/home/dsipos/.boa-constructor/prefs.rc.py", line 7, in ?
        import wx.stc
      File "/local/app/lib/python2.4/site-packages/wx-2.6-gtk2-ansi/wx/stc.py", line 10, in ?
        import _stc
    ImportError: /local/app/lib/libwx_gtk2_stc-2.6.so.0: undefined symbol: _ZN7CallTip7PaintCTEP7Surface

    I do not know what to do. Can anyone help me with this probem?
    Thanks in advance,
    Dumi

    P.S.
    I have:

    Python-2.4.3
    wxGTK-2.6.3
    wxPython-2.6.3.2
    boa-constructor-0.4.0
    (I tried boa-constructor-0.4.4 also but I had the same problem)

     
    • Hi,

      This looks like a problem with the "stc" control in gtk2.

      Can you run in the wxPython demo the StyledTextCtrl demos?

      Maybe check on a GTK2 mail list or on wxPython list.

      If you find the fix could you post back here too?

      One last thing, use Boa 0.4.4 if you get this resolved, lots of other corrections are included since 0.4.0.

        Hi,

        You were right: the problem was in wxPython.
        To fix it I just recompiled wxPython and after that I was able to run the StyledTextCtrl demo and Boa.

        Thank you,
        Dumi
