Thanks for the quick fix! I can confirm that the new version works fine now on my system.

@dmitter Thanks for the report! This should be fixed now :)

I have Python 3.11 installed on my system. It seems that version checking in Python is stricter now as the installation of this package failed for me with the following message:

i.e. Python rejects the version identifier "0.11.0.r1561.gd272c0b7" as invalid as per their spec (see I could make it work with the following diff:

@emanuele-f The C bindings should work just fine in the bcc package. Hence, it is separate from python-bcc.

I agree that not having the tools in the PATH is kind of awkward but there are a number of names which would clash with standard Linux tools. Defining a sensible ordering in the PATH IMHO does not make sense and hence I just stick to what upstream has decided to do.

emanuele-f commented on 2019-10-13 09:58 (UTC)

Why python-bcc-git is optional? Tools will fail with "No module named 'bcc'" if that is not installed. It would also be useful to have the tools in the PATH, I had to check the .pkg.tar.gz contents to locate where the tools are installed.

The provides/conflicts directives should be fixed now. Let me know if anyone runs into issues.

gamanakis commented on 2019-08-28 03:21 (UTC)

Please fix the "provides" directive. Instead of bcc-git it should say bcc, otherwise other packages depending on bcc are broken (e.g. bpftrace).

iamazat commented on 2019-05-11 13:32 (UTC)

Maybe this package should provides bcc?

renyuneyun commented on 2018-07-10 08:47 (UTC)

There is a file clash with postfix because of /usr/share/man/man8/trace.8.gz . Probably this should be handled... (Though I can uninstall postfix for me case.)

edh commented on 2018-02-16 08:29 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. That was just a plain mistake, I indeed meant to direct the message at @osandov.
