    Error trying to import python dbxml package

    901833
      Hi,

      I can see a similar thread fro windows (see: Python API setup problem on Windows but I'm having this problem with fedora15 (64bit) / Python2.7 / BDB XML 2.5.16:

      I can build and install BDB XML without any problems following the standard documentation. I'm then trying to get the Python API to work.

      I followed the instructions and the bsddb3.db library works fine:

      #$ python
      #>>> from bsddb3.db import *
      #>>> print version()
      (4, 8, 26)
      #>>> exit()

      the problem is trying to import dbxml:

      #$ python
      #>>> from bsddb3.db import *
      #>>> from dbxml import *
      Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
      File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/dbxml.py", line 25, in <module>
      dbxml = swigimport_helper()
      File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/dbxml.py", line 24, in swig_import_helper
      return _mod
      UnboundLocalError: local variable '_mod' referenced before assignment
      #>>>

      And if I then try to reimport:
      (following directly on from the above snippet)
      #>>> from dbxml import *
      Segmentation fault

      ... and python closes.

      Any thoughts?
      Thanks!
