- Previously, attempts to create a Python virtualenv environment using the "--system-site-packages" option resulted in an exception when the site.py() function attempted to load the abrt_exception_handler package. This was caused because Python tried to load the abrt.pth file, in which the abrt_exception_handler module was imported. Since the abrt_exception_handler module was installed under the /usr/lib64 directory and the abrt.pth file was installed under the /usr/lib directory, the site.py() function did not find the required module. This update moves the abrt.pth file to the architecture specific folder, so on 32-bit systems to the /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ directory and on 64-bit systems to the /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/ directory, which corrects this issue.
- Prior to this update, attempts to use ABRT to report bugs in a Bugzilla server returned the following Remote Procedure Call (RPC) error message: "fatal: RPC failed at server. The requested method 'bugzilla.getBug' was not found." Consequently, Bugzilla tickets were not created, and bugs were not reported. This update changes the code to use the new XMLRPC calls, and with the latest version of ABRT, Bugzilla tickets are created without any problems.
