[PATCHED] python/2.7.4 gzip package fails

September 24, 2013 by Doug Jacobsen (0 Comments)

The modules version of python (python/2.7.4) had a bug in the default gzip python package.  This was due to problems introduced in python 2.7.4 and fixed in python 2.7.5.  Receiving a TypeError or structError upon opening and reading a gzip'ped file were the phenotypes of this bug.  This has been corrected by installing the python 2.7.5 version of gzip.py into our python distribution.
