Description Marguerite Su 2017-02-06 16:38:45 UTC
reproduce steps:

1. sudo zypper in python-wxWidgets-3_0
2. python -c "import wx"


it works


Fatal Error: Mismatch between the program and library build versions detected.
The library used 3.0 (wchar_t,compiler with C++ ABI 1002,STL containers,compatible with 2.8),
and wxPython used 3.0 (wchar_t,compiler with C++ ABI 1010,STL containers,compatible with 2.8).
Aborted (Core dumped)

It looks like python-wxWidgets-3_0 didn't rebuild with the update wxWidgets-3_0, whose upstream now requires everything rebuilt to maintain ABI consistency.

it is now a common problem that packages rely on wxWidgets must be the same ABI version with wxWidgets itself. that is: 

1. wx packages on your system must be built with the wxWidgets that you are currently installed.

2. you must update all wxWidgets packages and applications after wxWidgets itself updated

3. wx packages across OBS must be rebuilt after wxWidgets is updated.

Considering this, I suggest we add a new rpm macro for wxWidgets:

%wxWidgets_runtime_requires \
Requires: wxWidgets(ABI) == 1010

and a provides for wxWidgets main package:

Provides: wxWidgets(ABI) == 1010

This will make packages that didn't get rebuilt with latest wxWidgets "unresolvable". I think this is currently the best solution, or you'll
see hidden problems everywhere randomly.

Of course you have to take care of the different flavors that wxWidgets provides.

Patch is already included; but depending on how long tumbleweed staging takes..
