Can't start Gajim

Can't start Gajim

Hi!
I can't start Gajim in one of my computers running Mageia 6.1 up to date.
Maybe it depends of some of last urpmi updates because I have other computer where it works and that one was not updated for a while.

First I found this errors:
Code: Select all
$ gajim
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "gajim.py", line 307, in <module>
    OpenSSL.rand.load_file(str(RNG_SEED))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/OpenSSL/rand.py", line 178, in load_file
    return _lib.RAND_load_file(filename, maxbytes)
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'RAND_load_file'


After a search in DuckDuckGo I found that the first problem can be solved installing lib64canberra-gtk0 also with lib64canberra-gtk3_0. Then the first error disappeared but the second one continues.

Code: Select all
 $ gajim
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "gajim.py", line 307, in <module>
    OpenSSL.rand.load_file(str(RNG_SEED))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/OpenSSL/rand.py", line 178, in load_file
    return _lib.RAND_load_file(filename, maxbytes)
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'RAND_load_file'


In some places talk about remove python-OpenSSL but it's not possible to remove it without removing Gajim.
Also installed python3-OpenSSL but problem persists.

In a Debian forum read that it's a problem with old versions of Gajim and recomends to install version 1.x but can't find Gajim 1.x in Mageia repos.

Anyone can help?

Thanks!

This seems to be an upstream bug, see https://dev.gajim.org/gajim/gajim/issues/8788 but it would also need an updated pyopenssl IIUC.
Best open a bugreport for that: https://wiki.mageia.org/en/How_to_report_a_bug_properly
