Bug Description

I am running BIT 1.08 on Arch Linux x86_64 with Gnome as the DE. BIT fails to load reporting the following error:

# backintime-gnome
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/backintime/gnome/", line 33, in <module>
    import gnome
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gnome/", line 13, in <module>
    from _gnome import *
ImportError: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: gcry_control

This is not an error in backintime. There's a libcrypt 1.5.0 related bug in the gnome-vfs package from Arch/extra-Repository. For more detail (and a patched version) see: - and wait for an update in Arch/extra

extra/gnome-vfs has been updated to version 2.24.4-4 on 2011-07-26

With this version the reported error should be gone ;)
