I made an updated PKGBUILD for Python 2.6.9 here:


(check out with Subversion from svn://svn.chrisarndt.de/projects/aur/python26)

This also fixes building against tk 8.6 and readline 6.3. For more details see the included changelog.

Okay, thanks for fixing!

I've added a patch that fixes the problem.

Please don't mark this package as out of date if you only want to report a bug.

maleadt commented on 2013-01-09 12:56

Doesn't seem to build due to dbm, see https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=118621. I couldn't manage to get dbm working, the first patch mendioned in that bug report doesn't apply, but disabling dbm alltogether (as per patch which is finally applied in the OoO bug thread) makes it work again.

I second Untitaker’s suggestion: Please mention 2.6 (two point six) somewhere rather than just twenty-six. I was almost about to write my own Python 2.6 package from scratch. Something like this should be good enough I think:

pkgdesc="Python version 2.6"

untitaker commented on 2012-09-16 14:13

I asked to merge python2.6 into this. Please write the description so that a search for "python 2.6" will bring this package up.

I worked around the error Synthead posted below by the questionable expedient of changing the make install to make altinstall and removing 2to3, idle, and pydoc from ${pkgdir}/usr/bin/ in build(). I had to jump through some similar hoops to get wxpython installed for the resulting python26, but the program I needed to run (the Traipse build of OpenRPG to be specific) is working, so I thought I would post this in case it somehow helps someone.

Here's a source package that's more up-to-date and working, kudos to le_fuzzy: http://www.mediafire.com/?vsy9utatr01s9rw
