Hello,

I tried to upgrade glade to the 3.38.2 release on core-update and
encountered the following test issue:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
2/5 modules               FAIL            0.29s   killed by signal 5 SIGTRAP

--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I think the issue here lies in the sitecustomize.py file introduced with
cb72f9a773e0931ee3758c851d96007ded034e4c.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
python_root = os.path.realpath(sys.executable).split('/bin/')[0]
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

When using the Python C library, sys.executable is not the expected
python binary but the test binary.

So when we try to find the associated libraries in the Python search
path, this way:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
index = sys_path_absolute.index(python_site)
sys.path = sys.path[:index] + matching_sites + sys.path[index:]
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

we get:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
ValueError: '/home/mathieu/glade-3.38.2/build/lib/python3.9/site-packages' is not in list
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Running the test with the PYTHONPATH set to:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
PYTHONPATH=/home/mathieu/glade-3.38.2/build/lib/python3.9/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH 
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

is a way to work around this issue.

The fix here would be to replace sys.executable in the sitecustomize.py
with something more adequate, but I have no idea what could it be.

Thanks,

Mathieu

From the doc [0], sys.prefix seems to be more correct.  This had been
suggested by Hartmut some time ago and I had this patch ready recently.
Perhaps it already addresses the issue at hand?

You'll find it attached.  It hasn't gotten much testing yet.

Subject: [PATCH] aux-files: sitecustomize: Cleanup and add explanatory
 comments.

* gnu/packages/aux-files/python/sitecustomize.py: Add a comment explaining the
general idea.

(major_minor): Use the unpacking operator (*) to provide the arguments.
(site_packages_prefix): Use os.path.join to form the path.
(python_site): Likewise.
(all_sites_raw): Split on os.path.pathsep.
(sys.path): Directly splice the result in the list.

Is there a simple reproducer to test my fix?  Would just building
current Glade and its test suite trigger it?

Thanks,

Maxim

OK, nevermind, I found that the test case was deleting the 'fix-tests'
build phase from glade3, and building the package.  I confirm the fix
works!

I'll send that patch series I've been talking about.

Thanks,

Maxim

Great, that's exactly what I was trying to test but you beat me to it
:). I'll be afk for a month so I won't be able to confirm that I have
the same result locally. However, this fix looks good to me.

Thanks,

Mathieu
