ImportError: No module named _codecs_tw, when calling encoding module in an apps script

New Member

Please help me on this.

I need to transform encoding from utf-8 to big5 in a app script. However it does nothing with no error shown. Finally I find that's due to lacking some so files in $SPLUNKHOME/lib/python2.6/lib-dynload/, such as _codecs_cn.so, _codecs_hk.so, _codecs_iso2022.so, _codecs_jp.so, _codecs_kr.so, _codecs_tw.so, _multibytecodec*.so.

A simple test script as following,
import sys, time, os, encodings
from encodings import big5
print encodings.big5.getregentry()

Run it by, /opt/splunk/bin/splunk cmd python /opt/splunk/etc/apps/AlertThrottle/bin/a-test.py
Then I get ImportError: No module named _codecs_tw.

I've try to put those missing files from other python package. After that, script shows 'undefined symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_Splitlines', which seems related to unicodeobject.h file.

Meanwhile, encoding and decoding of unicod fail too. A script I run as following,
Big5txt = unicode(msg[:65],'utf-8').encode('big5')
LookupError: unknown encoding: big5

Is it posible to get those Asian encoding works in python build in splunk?
