With 3.11.6 update, python3.9 binaries are now python3.11 binaries.

Thanks, SanderV, it's been quite a bit of time since I've touched this package and the update escaped my focus. Updating now for the current version of arch's python.

Could this be updated to the latest (3.11.6 ATM)? Having this be the same version as the official Python package allows using the site-packages dir of the regular Python through PYTHONPATH.

With this package still at the old version, doing so yields a numpy loading error for me.

I confirmed that the package works by just updating the pkgver.

@fmagin This package has been built as a debug build of Python forever. I simply carried it along, updated it and moved it over to /opt so that it would not conflict with official repo's python installation.

I'd be down for making a package that purely includes DWARF debug information, but that's not really what this package was intended for originally.

I expected this package to just contain the DWARF debug information, but this also seems to enable the GC_DEBUG flag somehow, which activates list validation inside the garbage collector. See This has a huge impact on performance, and now 90% of my code is spent inside validate_lists. The question is what this package aims to be? a -dbg package that supplies DWARF debug information for resolving symbols (like for performance profiling) or specifically a debug build of Python that is expected to have such debugging flags like GC_DEBUG activated.

0b30003bdeeb - install python-dbg independently

  • python-dbg is now installed to /opt/python-dbg and is completely independent of the system-installed python package.
  • python-dbg no longer provides python.
  • Due to the new prefix, /opt/python-dbg/lib is used for Python packages with the debug executable links.
Symlinks are provided in /usr/bin:
  • /usr/bin/python3.9d
  • /usr/bin/python3.9d-config
  • /usr/bin/python-dbg
  • /usr/bin/python3-dbg
  • /usr/bin/python3.9-dbg
  • /usr/bin/python-config-dbg
  • /usr/bin/python3-config-dbg
  • /usr/bin/python3.9-config-dbg
  • /usr/bin/idle3-dbg
  • /usr/bin/idle3.9-dbg
  • /usr/bin/pip3-dbg
  • /usr/bin/pip3.9-dbg
  • /usr/bin/pydoc3-dbg
  • /usr/bin/pydoc3.9-dbg

The versions will change when the package is updated to a new major + minor.

@staletic For now, you have to choose one or the other. I know you commented on this a year ago; I'll look into separating it into its own python-dbg paths around the filesystem and hopefully push up an update which solves this for you.

No promises, though.

staletic commented on 2020-11-09 17:11 (UTC)

This package conflicts python from the extra repository. I'd love to be able to install them side by side, so that vim can keep using the non-debug python, while I debug CPython in gdb.

@Andrea993 Thanks. Build dependencies are updated.

It needs valgrind as build dependence
