Package: gdebi
Version: 0.8.4
Severity: grave
File: /usr/share/gdebi/gdebi-gtk
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

Running from terminal gives this output. Seems to be a python error.

Traceback (most recent call last):

    from GDebi.GDebi import GDebi
  File "/usr/share/gdebi/GDebi/GDebi.py", line 37, in <module>
    import gi
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/__init__.py", line 23, in <module>
    from ._gi import _API, Repository
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/_gi.so: undefined symbol: g_value_set_schar
