View Full Version : [xubuntu] pymtp bindings out of date?

September 1st, 2010, 09:32 PM
I have recently been trying to hack around a MTP plugin for the Exaile music player, but the first hurdle was getting any basic MTP operations to succeed. The following python calls caused a segmentation fault:

>>> import pymtp
>>> dev = pymtp.MTP()
>>> dev.connect()
>>> tracks = dev.get_tracklisting()
Segmentation faultI had a look at pymtp and I think that it is not in sync with the libmtp8 package (version 1.0.2) I have installed on my xubuntu 10.04 system.

I have looked at the libmtp.h file for 1.0.2 and made some changes to pymtp which appear to do the job - no more crash, but I haven't yet tested the other parts of the interface.

Feel free to use the attached patched file. I will try to get it to the package owner for further testing and hopefully an eventual package update.
