I'm always stuck with this too - the best thing is too keep the
sip specification files handy, and cut and paste it from that
declaration. Even spaces are significant, because the whole bit
between brackets is used to find the relevant signal.

Your bit would be:

  void textChanged(const char *);

so, you should hook it up like

QObject.connect(myLineEdit,SIGNAL("textChanged(const char *)"),pyFunction)
