Hi All, I was fiddling here and there with some code doing dynamic import of stuff, and I noticed that this code: import os import sys init_name = r"C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\numpy__init__.py" directory, module_name = os.path.split(init_name) main = os.path.splitext(module_name) sys.path.insert(0, os.path.normpath(directory)) # Crash here... mainmod = __import__(main)
in this case, your main is '__init__' and your directory is 'C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\numpy' which is probably not what you intended. You should make directory 'C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages' and main into 'numpy'
Still, it shouldn't segfault, and it's worth figuring out why it does. gdb has been mostly unenlightening for me since gdb won't let me navigate the traceback.
