Error importing hashlib with python 2.7 but not with 2.6

I'm on Solaris 10 (x86).

Until now, I was using python2.6. Today, I installed python2.7 and I have a weird error occuring when importing hashlib on 2.7, but not on 2.6:

Python 2.6:

root@myserver [PROD] # python2.6 -c "import hashlib"
root@myserver [PROD] # 

Python 2.7:

root@myserver [PROD] # python2.7 -c "import hashlib"

I don't understand why I have this error since I'm trying the import ON THE SAME MACHINE.

Thanks in advance for your help!

    • Not really a duplicate, since my question is more generic. I don't understand the error: if it's related to OpenSSL, I should have the same error for the 2 versions of python. Why would it work for 2.6 and not for 2.7 with the same openssl?

    • run python2.7 -v -c "import hashlib" to see the list of what it is trying and failing to import. ldd /usr/local/lib/python2.7/_hashlibmodule.so tells you what?. i suspect it is failing to load that due to how your locally compiled python2.7 was linked...

The python2.7 package is dependent to the libssl1_0_0 package (openssl_1.0 runtime librairies).

I installed it, and added the /usr/local/ssl/lib directory in $LD_LIBRARY_PATH environnent variable.

And now it works perfectly! :)

same error for me. My case was a copied virtenv giving me this error on a new server. The default python was working.

I used

python2.7 -v -c "import hashlib" 2> output.txt

you should see something like this line below in your output.txt:

import hashlib # precompiled from hashlib.pyc
dlopen("/path/to/virtenv/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/_hashlib.so", 2);

ldd /path/to/virtenv/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/_hashlib.so
...
   libssl.so.0.9.8 => not found
   libcrypto.so.0.9.8 => not found
...

So what I did is simply :

cp /usr/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/_hashlib.so /*path-to-virtenv*/manager/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/_hashlib.so

You can use below command and check which libraries are missing,

ldd /path/to/Python-Library/_hashlibmodule.so

e.g

ldd /usr/local/lib/python2.7/_hashlibmodule.so

If you get output like below, that means you are missing necessary openssl libraries

    linux-vdso.so.1 =>  (0x00007fffd6f6a000)
    libssl.so.6 => not found
    libcrypto.so.6 => not found
    libpython2.7.so.1.0 => /lib64/libpython2.7.so.1.0 (0x00007ffb18b54000)
    libpthread.so.0 => /lib64/libpthread.so.0 (0x00007ffb18937000)
    libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x00007ffb185a2000)
    libdl.so.2 => /lib64/libdl.so.2 (0x00007ffb1839e000)
    libutil.so.1 => /lib64/libutil.so.1 (0x00007ffb1819b000)
    libm.so.6 => /lib64/libm.so.6 (0x00007ffb17f16000)
    /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x0000003e0a000000)

    • This example was a great help! I used the following to find all missing SOs in a paticular environment: ldd /opt/test/python/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/*.so | grep "not found"

    • If SSL support wasn't compiled in you won't see these references - but their absence should tell you why it is failing.
