Idem here on a i686 system. Guess it's a Python problem (passing from 2.4 to 2.5?)

I'm seeing the same error on two i686 installations here:

ImportError: cannot import name constructRandom

Dag Stenstad (dag-stenstad) wrote :

As far as I can see, what happens is that the "from random import constructRandom" loads /usr/lib/python2.5/ instead of /usr/share/games/pysol/ Just as a test I copied pysol/ to another file, and changed the imports in, and to reflect this. The game started up.

As noted in the changelog, this is a bit of a hack to get around what appears to be an intermittend Python bug, but it is a hack that works.

Locally built package with this change runs as expected on a box the crashed with ubuntu3.

   * Move /src/ to to avoid odd namespace confusion and
     change imports to match. (Closes LP: #80287)
     - Note this is a workaround for LP #104971 and should be removed once
       that is corrected.
   * Add version to python-support build-dep
