Feisty ipython segfaults on "import <tab>"

Bug #110011 reported by Ville M. Vainio on 2007-04-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ipython (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

See http://lists.ipython.scipy.org/pipermail/ipython-dev/2007-April/002837.html

Try this:
In [4]: import matp<TAB>

[Standby while scanning modules, this can take a while]

CXX is installed.
The support files you need are in the PYTHON/etc/CXX directory.
The include files are in the distutils include path already.
Just refer to them as "CXX/CXX_Objects.h", etc.

Segmentation fault

This should be fixed in Feisty IPython by editing file IPython/UserConfig/ipy_user_conf.py and commenting out line with "import ipy_stock_completers".

To test the fix, you need to run %upgrade if you have launched ipython before (and hence created a copy of ipy_user_conf.py in ~/.ipython).

I can confirm the segfault with a fresh ipython installation.

Changed in ipython:
status: Unconfirmed → Confirmed

The suggested fix works well here - although I didn't do %upgrade (I hadn't picked up that part) but rather just commented out the line in ~/.ipython/ipy_user_conf.py

Marking "fix released", in Gutsy.
For Feisty a StableReleaseUpdate would be needed. Please "Nominate for release" in this case.

Changed in ipython:
status: Confirmed → Fix Released
