This should not link to python and python-numpy, only to python2 and python2-numpy.

I got error during install: could not satisfy dependencies: - unable to satisfy dependency 'boost-python2-libs=1.76.0' required by boost-python2

I found in build file: pkgver=1.78.0

What is the problem?

@bilabila: Sorry for the delay...

If you are using this package and wish to help in the maintenance, I could add you as co-maintainer, for me it's an obscure dependency of outdated usd19 package.

bilabila commented on 2021-05-18 11:32 (UTC) (edited on 2021-05-18 11:37 (UTC) by bilabila) gives me "forbidden!" message, while the url from boostorg is ok

I am not asking for url change, just keep the same as community.

@vetit: fixed 24817bd42ec7

Forgot to eat up failed grep status with empty MAKEFLAGS...

same failure to build boost-python2 1.75.0-1
for some reason, line 38 in PKGBUILD causes a problem in my environment
PKGBUILD never executes past that line if enabled. (verified by adding echo statements inline)

try the install again... it finds package as pre-made and installs it
yay boost-python2
-> boost-python2-1.75.0-1 already made -- skipping build
installs all OK

@horga83: Could you be more specific, It builds fine here:> extra-x86_64-build -r /tmp/boost-python2 is this about version update (just pushed 1.75)?

@ve7it: As you can see it just extract number of jobs form MAKEFLAGS defined in makepkg.conf or passed in makepkg call.

ve7it commented on 2021-01-11 04:22 (UTC)

horga83, I did get the package to compile by editing the pkgbuild and commenting out line 49 # local JOBS; JOBS="$(grep -oP -- "-j\s*[0-9]+" <<< "${MAKEFLAGS}")"

I am not sure what this line does, but if left enabled it causes the makepkg to fail at that line.

Perhaps the package manager can comment????

This package no longer builds. It is required by linuxcnc as is boost-python2-libs. Any tips to fix?
