In Fedora we compile (part of) libguestfs twice in order to build both sets of bindings. Search for ‘python’ starting here:

One day soon we'll drop Python 2 and this problem will go away.

@sanerb: I don't think there is a way to compile libguestfs with having both python 2 and python 3 bindings enabled. If you change the _pythonver variable in the PKGBUILD script to 3, it will compile the library with python 3 support

hey, it looks like you currently only distribute python2 bindings:

[bts@cylon ~]$ pacman -Ql libguestfs|grep python
libguestfs /usr/lib/python2.7/
libguestfs /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/
libguestfs /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/
libguestfs /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/
libguestfs /usr/share/man/man3/guestfs-python.3.gz

can you please also include python 3 bindings?

you may or may not need this:

The files are OK, it's the web server which has a fault. Planning to move to a new webserver soon.

appliance-1.36.1.tar.xz is also broken ...

atomita commented on 2018-02-12 08:17

The published compressed file is broken.

Can't verify sha512 hash for libguestfs-1.36.10.tar.gz. Is this package out-of-date?

K'mon, do not use "update-guestfs-appliance", rip what it does and insert it in PKGBUILD, tough what you're doing would be awesome for a package inside some bin repo, it sucks for AUR purposes....

This is answered many times. flex and bison are part of the base-devel package group. You need this installed in order to use AUR packages.

Requires also the following packages:
- flex
- bison
