New package release 2.6.9-4:
* add patch for test_distutils for http://bugs.python.org/issue10126
* source package and .AURINFO are now generated with mkaurball (thanks to Kwpolska for the tip)
* fix version number variable substitution in provides

@SpotlightKid, have you used `mkaurball` (from the package `pkgbuild-introspection`) instead of `makepkg --source`?

SpotlightKid commented on 2014-06-20 16:10

I've added a patch for the issue but AUR rejects my updated source package upload with "Invalid name: only lowercase letters are allowed.", though changed nothing else. No idea why, I'll have to investigate.

In the meantime, you can find the updated package here:

This is probably http://bugs.python.org/issue10126. Occurs only when there is no pre-existing Python 2.6 installation on the build system. I'll add a patch later.

SpotlightKid commented on 2014-06-20 14:13

Can you build C-extension modules with this version and distutils after you installed it?

s_m commented on 2014-06-20 13:56

Unfortunately the distutils fails for me. With '--nocheck' I was able to build and install the package. This was the error output:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpython2.6
collect2: fout: ld gaf exit-status 1 terug
test test_distutils failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):

@SpotlightKid oh, I had a leftover old thing around, somehow.

SpotlightKid commented on 2014-05-24 11:13

Can't reproduce this here, sys.path is correcct. Are you sure, you are using the binary that results from building with this PKGBUILD? As you can see, it is built with './configure --prefix=/usr ...'.

Kwpolska commented on 2014-05-24 11:07


$ python2.6
>>> '/usr/lib/python2.6' in sys.path

SpotlightKid commented on 2014-05-24 11:06

What are you talking about? What do mean by "it" and "believe"?
