@emanuele-f The C bindings should work just fine in the bcc package. Hence, it is separate from python-bcc.

I agree that not having the tools in the PATH is kind of awkward but there are a number of names which would clash with standard Linux tools. Defining a sensible ordering in the PATH IMHO does not make sense and hence I just stick to what upstream has decided to do.

Why python-bcc-git is optional? Tools will fail with "No module named 'bcc'" if that is not installed. It would also be useful to have the tools in the PATH, I had to check the .pkg.tar.gz contents to locate where the tools are installed.

The provides/conflicts directives should be fixed now. Let me know if anyone runs into issues.

gamanakis commented on 2019-08-28 03:21 (UTC)

Please fix the "provides" directive. Instead of bcc-git it should say bcc, otherwise other packages depending on bcc are broken (e.g. bpftrace).

iamazat commented on 2019-05-11 13:32 (UTC)

Maybe this package should provides bcc?

There is a file clash with postfix because of /usr/share/man/man8/trace.8.gz . Probably this should be handled... (Though I can uninstall postfix for me case.)

Thanks for the note. That was just a plain mistake, I indeed meant to direct the message at @osandov.

Hey @edh I'm not the maintainer anymore, you want @osandov.

@osandov I recently adopted the non-git package and overhauled the PKGBUILD. Feel free to move over everything that seems fitting. Besides cosmetic and slight variable value changes at the very least the checkdepends should be updated.

Btw. since I already maintain one version of the package I would not mind to keep track of one additional PKGBUILD file. Hence if you are not really interested in maintaining it and simply stepped up due to some imminent need, I would be more than willing to take ownership of this package as well.

EDIT: Remove nonsense about man pages and redirect message to username osandov.

Hi, the buildscript have some errors. First, the provides array would be 'bcc', not 'bcc-git', about libbcc-git, the same, would be 'libbcc', and maybe will be needed to add to conflicts array too. For more information check ( Furthermore, according to the arch user repository guidelines to share package builds, you need to put your info as maintainer in the first lines(

Heya all, I just lack time and effort to maintain these packages - I'm going to disown them so another can pick up next. Be careful pushing a new release, apparently there's a clang/llvm bug (according to upstream) that causes everything to segfault - if you have an older compiled version installed, don't upgrade until that's fixed. ( cc: bcc, bcc-git packages

lilydjwg commented on 2017-08-10 03:13 (UTC)

bcc-git depends on 'libelf' 'zlib' 'ncurses' 'gcc-libs'. It doesn't build in devtools without the libelf depends.

troyengel commented on 2016-01-24 19:59 (UTC)

New release is out -- this is a major rewrite to align with the non-git release packages and some changes upstream about the tools/ design. The main bcc package was updated just a touch to align with this one in the conflicts/provides areas.

Hey troyengel, yup I just saw the activity on github. Happy to have you maintain this. I'll add you as a co-maintainer and the remove myself. Edit: done

troyengel commented on 2016-01-01 18:57 (UTC)

Heya Manuel - I just submitted a stable package after working with upstream to add some patches to the cmake files for different python versions, as well as discussed with them where the "tools" should go for now as they conflict with Brendan's other project perf-tools (same names). (see Also, my request to add CONFIG_BPF_SYSCALL to the stock Arch kernel was accepted as of release 4.3.1, so now we can actually use the library without rebuilding the kernel. :) (I was waiting on this to release) It's a split pkg with a bunch of logic to generally match what upstream wants, feel free to port some of it to bcc-git (like building both python2 and python3 bindings) or if you want I can adopt bcc-git and work on it. Should be generally the same...

mmlb commented on 2015-12-01 16:06 (UTC)

fixed, thanks malinas
