PyQt, Cannot send events to objects owned by a different thread?

hallo,

i try to adress an qt object

self.statusbar.showMessage("rtt %s...." % (n.rtt))

in an callback function, comming from a shared lib importet by ctypes, on
osx this works wonderfull

when i run the same code on linux (ubuntu gutsy), i get this core dump, ok,
i understand that the problem is, that i cant speak to the qt thread, but
why does it work on osx?

shall i recompile python? pyqt or sip? without threads?

could somebody give me a hint what to do best? how can i call a qt object in
an c-lib callback?

thanks for any help,
alex

Luck. If something works reproducibly in some conditions, that
neither means it will work elsewhere nor that it is wise to do so
at all.

(I will spare the group far-fetched road traffic similes for
now ;) )

Just use Qt as recommended in its docs; that's how you do the best
you can against future portability or other issues.

Björn
