Pls stop flagging this out of date, just because there is a branch somewhere, which states that there is some other version *available*, which is newer than 1.3.

1.5 and 2.0 and 3.0 and 42 have not been released yet. And last but not least 3.1415926 is also not yet released. So please stop this shit.

I have disowned this package since I don't really use this program. Anyone is welcome to take over maintaining.

Good catch, added tk to dependencies.

I noticed namebench doesn't start GUI on my system. More research showed that it's missing Tkinter (or "python-tk").
Arch provides Tkinter as extra/tk (and extra/tcl as a dependency).
After installing tk manually I got GUI working. Would you mind adding tk as a dependency for your namebench package?

you are right. sorry for the unnecessary paranoid. ;=)

Are you talking about the files under /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/? They aren't executable, so unless you chmod them manually, it makes no difference what shebang line they have. They're only intended to be imported into other scripts. So there's no point in patching their shebang line.

Auguste commented on 2010-10-21 13:45

there are many .py files in the package and many with shebang line #!/usr/bin/env python, shouldn't these files be patched?

and there is one file, something link, has a shebang line ends with some extra [:space:] or something that i can't see.

some files are hard coded to run by /usr/bin/python2.4, i don't know if this matters.

Package updated, namebench now uses python2 instead of python. Thanks for reporting!

Auguste commented on 2010-10-20 14:35

needs patching because of the python3 migration.
