Not loading - AttributeError: /usr/bin/python: undefined symbol: FcPatternBuild

Hi,
i tried to install calibre on opensuse11.1 (version found here
http://lizards.opensuse.org/2009/03/...-with-calibre/

When i try to run it, it starts loading (cursor shows some books bumping) and then disappears after 10 seconds.
I run through console and i get

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/calibre", line 8, in <module>

File "/usr/lib/python2.6/ctypes/__init__.py", line 371, in __getitem__
func = self._FuncPtr((name_or_ordinal, self))
AttributeError: /usr/bin/python: undefined symbol: FcPatternBuild


I arrived here after googling the last line to this thread
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?p=320849
i realized, as in the last post there, that i had freetype2 and not freetype installed, so i also installed that but i didn't know how to run callibre_postinstall, i just removed and reinstalled calibre, but the situation remains the same.

Also, regarding the other two questions you had in that post (if that helps)
k8oylos@linux-rovh:~> calibre-debug -c "from ctypes import util; print util.find_library('fontconfig')"
None
k8oylos@linux-rovh:~> readelf -a /usr/lib/libfontconfig.so | grep FcPatternBuild
bash: readelf: command not found

Thanks in advance!

readelf is a development tool you'll probably have to install some packages to get, exactly which ones, depends on your distro.

I would suggest trying the binary installer forst as IIRC it includes its own copy of fontconfig and freetype

hmm, you are talking to a newbie here, sorry half the words you are using make no sense.
binary installer forst as IIRC??o?

PS: i tried doing the installation as you have it in your site and get a similar error, if that's of any significance

You basically need the correct freetype library installed. I suggest posting in http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?p=320849 and asking Derry what exactly he did to get it working.
