ImportError: [libraryname].so: undefined symbol: [function name]

I'm extending my Python program with a C module that uses the GstPhotography interface for GStreamer. My C module compiles fine, but when I try running it from Python, I get this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "", line 10, in <module>
     import MyPythonClass
   File "/path/", line 19, in <module>
     import my_c_module
ImportError: /path/ undefined symbol: gst_photography_get_type  

I'm not really sure what this means, because I never use gst_photography_get_type in my_c_module.cpp--it's a function implemented in the GstPhotography source code.


It means that you didn't link against enough libraries, either because it wasn't indicated in the pkgconfig file, or you didn't refer to the pkgconfig file in the first place.
