python-django18 This package seems disappear. Does python-django might be suitable?

The PKGBUILD will change your git config user and email to "Bitbake Tester". The maintainer has been notified about this but has not responded or updated the package.

@gin078 working now. Thanks!

gin078 commented on 2019-10-09 21:20 (UTC)

@jetm sorry about that, should be fixed now.

Getting this error when bitbake is called:

@gin078: There is a typo in python-pyl, is python-ply.

@gin078: There is a typo in python-pyl, is python-ply. The package should increase the revision number, so all user gets python-ply and python-simpleddiff change. Thanks, Javier

gin078 commented on 2019-07-11 06:33 (UTC)

@jetm noted, thanks for reporting!

jetm commented on 2019-07-11 03:24 (UTC)

I had two errors due missing Python modules. They are python-ply and python-simplediff. After installed them, bitbake start working. Could you add them as dependencies?

Thanks, Javier

typo in pkgbaes

ftonello commented on 2017-10-13 10:00 (UTC)

I am unable to maintain this package anymore. If anyone wants to take ownership, please post here.

ecloud commented on 2017-04-11 09:57 (UTC)

This is obsolete. 1.33 is out, and supposedly it will work with python 3 now:

Please fix the install script: /tmp/alpm_6MCcrH/.INSTALL: line 2: unexpected EOF while looking for matching ``' /tmp/alpm_6MCcrH/.INSTALL: line 5: syntax error: unexpected end of file

ftonello commented on 2017-02-07 22:20 (UTC)

I have tried to build the latest 1.30 and it still fails some tests, so I'll wait to update the package.

The check function fails for me. Any help is greatly appreciated.

linkmauve commented on 2017-01-10 15:08 (UTC)

Also, you install /usr/bin/bitbake as using /usr/bin/env python instead of python2, and are missing the pysh dependency.

linkmauve commented on 2017-01-10 15:00 (UTC)

The md5sum of the archive has changed again?! It seems to be 90fe6182f57ec9325447bdddbf901a99 now, could you check with upstream whether it’s normal for it to change after a release, and if they could make minor releases instead when they fix things?

ftonello commented on 2016-11-28 15:39 (UTC)

These files and dependencies are only necessary if you want to use bitbake in a build system. In that case, you shouldn't use this package. This package is usefull for other bitbake related tasks, suck as PR server and others.

AndyRTR commented on 2016-11-04 18:59 (UTC)

pkg doens't work. PKGBUILD needs additional wget and git packages to makedepends. The install msg seems not to be enough. Building asteroidos I get an error to set BBPATH. Additionally some files are missing: IOError: [Errno 2] file conf/bitbake.conf not found in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages I suggest to either fix this or even jump to 1.32 based on python 3.x.

ftonello commented on 2016-10-21 09:50 (UTC) (edited on 2016-10-21 09:52 (UTC) by ftonello)

No, that's correct because they have updated bitbake package without bumping the version since it is a fix in the selftest script, I guess. I have updated now. Thanks.

DacodaS commented on 2016-10-14 23:37 (UTC) (edited on 2016-10-14 23:41 (UTC) by DacodaS)

When validating with the md5sums it fails. Plz. Specifically, the md5 of the file I get is 76e61f7efbabb38caf5f3531e87a988f whereas it looks like it's looking for 78f913fa7ca7674705b05fb04d1067ce. Am I crazy?

ftonello commented on 2016-09-08 08:22 (UTC)

Yes, but that is actually a bug in bitbake, hopefully they fix that. If you want to build anyway, just remove the check() function.

sl1pkn07 commented on 2016-09-07 21:06 (UTC)

ftonello commented on 2016-09-06 14:37 (UTC)

I fixed both, thanks. Apparently this newer 1.30 version is failing to build due to some failure.

Splashy commented on 2016-09-06 14:26 (UTC)

Md5sums is outdated and pythonpath should be equal to: PYTHONPATH=`pwd`/../lib:`pwd`/../lib/bb

ftonello commented on 2016-08-23 13:29 (UTC)

Try adding `pwd`/../lib/bb to PYTHONPATH to the check() function, example: PYTHONPATH=`pwd`/../lib:`pwd`/../lib/bb Let me know if it fixes, if it works, then I can fix this package.

I get this error when installing on my laptop and desktop running manjaro 64-bit. When I look this issue up people say to use python 2 instead of 3 but I've been unable to get yaourt to use it.

ftonello commented on 2016-07-22 14:37 (UTC)


ftonello commented on 2016-07-22 13:55 (UTC)

Scimmia, fair enough. Thanks.

Scimmia commented on 2016-07-22 13:34 (UTC)

Just like all of the other deps, make a package for it.

ftonello commented on 2016-07-22 13:27 (UTC)

Scimmia, can you please tell me how you would do it?

Scimmia commented on 2016-07-22 13:04 (UTC)

Using sudo pip here is very, very, VERY wrong.

ftonello commented on 2016-07-22 10:56 (UTC)

Hi sl1pkn07, I've pushed a new release of this package that fixes this issue. Thanks for reporting. Felipe
