Dear tblu,
I've fixed the PKGBUILD by downgrading to the 1.3 branch. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Please only flag a package as out-of-date if it's actually out-of-date.

Hi there, I also needed to rename build() in two packages (python2-graphy2, namebench) to make it work.

sigmundv commented on 2015-01-07 17:53

Please rename the build() function to package(), as a package() function is required (cf

No longer builds.

@R00KIE: Thanks, didn't notice the python-namebench package had been updated to a split package following the naming guidelines (it used to be python2). The namebench now installs third party libraries if you don't explicitly stop it - so that's why no one noticed. I'll switch to back to using the system libraries and update the dependency.

R00KIE commented on 2012-12-27 21:46

Just wondering if the dependency on python-dnspython shouldn't be a dependency on python2-dnspython.

@megadriver: Thanks, I adopted the package and made the change (although it seems like jinja could be in optdepends).

megadriver commented on 2012-01-01 13:00

The python-jinja dependency (which pulls Python 3 in) should be replaced by python2-jinja, I think.

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.

michalmiddleton commented on 2011-05-21 16:39

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.

intgr commented on 2010-10-21 12:38

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.
