Python version '3.9' doesn't exist - Library not found

Hi,

I’m having issues getting the Python middleware to work since we switched distros. We’re on Debian Buster now and I’ve followed Python for packages I need to install.

The error we’re getting is this:

time="Dec 08 23:47:16" level=error msg="Python version '3.9' doesn't exist" error="Library not found"
time="Dec 08 23:47:16" level=error msg="Couldn't load Python dispatcher" error="python version '3.9' doesn't exist" prefix=coprocess

The first “Library not found” one is coming from tyk/main.go at master · TykTechnologies/tyk · GitHub. I tried to figure out what library it’s trying to use.

[email protected]:/opt/tyk-gateway# python-config --ldflags
 -L/usr/local/lib  -lcrypt -lpthread -ldl  -lutil -lm -lm

It seems like Tyk is looking for a -l flag with python in the name according to this which the output of python-config --ldflags doesn’t contain. So presumably it falls back to lib.so according to this line.

These are the libs I have in my /usr/local/lib folder:

We’re using Python 3.9

[email protected]:/opt/tyk-gateway# python -V
Python 3.9.0

These are the packages I have installed:

I’m not sure at this point if I’m missing a package/library or if the output of python-config --ldflags is just wrong.

I appreciate your help

Hi,

Could you let us have your tyk.conf please? It would be great to check what settings you’re running with.

Cheers,
Pete

Sure, no problem:

I played around with specifying coprocess_options.python_version but couldn’t make it work with it yet.

Here are the python versions that are installed on the image:

[email protected]:/opt/tyk-gateway# python -V
Python 3.9.0
[email protected]:/opt/tyk-gateway# python3 -V
Python 3.9.0
[email protected]:/opt/tyk-gateway# python3.9 -V
Python 3.9.0
[email protected]:/opt/tyk-gateway# python-config --ldflags
 -L/usr/local/lib  -lcrypt -lpthread -ldl  -lutil -lm -lm
[email protected]:/opt/tyk-gateway# python3-config --ldflags
 -L/usr/local/lib  -lcrypt -lpthread -ldl  -lutil -lm -lm
[email protected]:/opt/tyk-gateway# python3.9-config --ldflags
 -L/usr/local/lib  -lcrypt -lpthread -ldl  -lutil -lm -lm

Any luck @Pete ? Is there anything else I can provide you to make this easier to debug?

Hi @tobiasb

Thanks for the tyk.conf. That confirms that coprocess_options.python_version isn’t specified which was the first thing I thought of.

I’ll build a buster install today and have a look. Could you confirm which version of the gateway you’re running and did you build from source or install a package?

Cheers,
Pete

Scratch that I can see from your package list it’s 3.2.2.

I’m confused by the presence of python 3.9 and its libraries. My apparently up to date version of buster only has 3.7 and your list of installed packages says 3.7.

Where has 3.9 come from?

Cheers,
Pete

@Pete we’re using python:3.9-slim-buster from Docker Hub

Thanks,

That’s an important detail.

Can you confirm that you’ve got the dependencies in place from the docs?

Cheers,
Pete

I think to. Let me paste my Dockerfile here @Pete. Please let me know if you see anything missing here.

Hi @tobiasb

I’m really sorry that I missed the detail of your original analysis and didn’t see that the python-config output was changed. We will have to update Tyk to make it understand the new output.

In the mean time, could you try creating a soft link to the name that tyk is deriving and try again?

sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/libpython3.9.so /usr/local/lib/lib.so

Cheers,
Pete
