@MarsSeed, this package was abandoned, so it is a bit unclear to me who you were adressing. But hey, I fixed it anyway.

I opted to still use the old python3.10 in the aur as dependency, or the maintanance will only get worse over time. The new Py_SET_TYPE function expects a completely diffrent flow and it generated too much rewriting work.

The subpackages should provide boost=$pkgver and boost-libs=$pkgver, respectively.

I dirty fixed this package so I cant actually build. But I will not always have the time to maintain this package, So I'm disowning it for now.

I found that there was a fix already. see this, I modify the file and works well.

wbthomason commented on 2022-02-09 07:19 (UTC)

This also fails to build for me, and looking at the CI, it seems like it’s an issue there too.

eggz commented on 2022-02-05 10:59 (UTC)

I have had problems for weeks now building this package, and it seems I am the only one. So I'm really confused right now.

I have this blocking error multiple times:

libs/python/src/exec.cpp:109:14: error: ‘_Py_fopen’ was not declared in this scope; did you mean ‘_Py_wfopen’?

Does anyone have a clue what I am doing wrong, besides executing a very complex makepkg --force on this package??? :-D

It seems that default python version is 3.10 now. but building this package need python3.9 and it is not in dependcy.

For me (locally) it fails with

don't know how to make <e>j7
...found 1 target...
...can't find 1 target...

Same in a clean chroot environment. However, since it works for you and the CI/CD it's probably about my local configuration / make flags used. I'll investigate further.

Edit: Nevermind, my config error: I had MAKEFLAGS=j7. Should be MAKEFLAGS=-j7

@fmauch: What do you mean, it built fine on my local machine and on
