A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

4.155. PyXML

An updated PyXML package that fixes various bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
PyXML provides XML libraries for Python. The distribution contains a validating XML parser, an implementation of the SAX and DOM programming interfaces, and an interface to the Expat parser.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, PyXML contained the shebang line, "#!/usr/bin/env python". This made it difficult to install alternative versions of Python on the system. With this update, the shebang lines in Python executables have been changed to, "#!/usr/bin/python", to ensure the Python interpreter installed on the system is used.
Python packages provide extra metadata about the package in the form of eggs. Prior to this update, PyXML-0.8.4-py2.4.egg-info was missing. As a result, one of the scripts of the Zolera Soap Infrastructure (ZSI) Python module did not work correctly as it could not find the PyXML libraries. As a result of this update, the missing information has now been provided, the Python eggs are now built correctly, and python-ZSI module no longer fails at runtime.
All users of PyXML are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
