I'm no longer using Arch in favor for NetBSD. That's why I disowned the package.

please update, change arch to 'x86_64' and add a license file.

Upstream raised their version to 1.0.0. So I'll do the 2 things together and provide a python2-posix_ipc (if nobody else did it before).

You can probably pretty easily modify this PKGBUILD and submit it to the AUR yourself to get this.

I want the python2 library Please make "python2-posix_ipc".

tom5760 commented on 2013-09-29 19:23 (UTC)

Ok, disowned.

I'd like to maintain it.

I've just updated the package, seems to work for me. I don't actually use this package really anymore, if you (or anyone else) is interested in maintaining it, let me know.

This package doesn't work. I suggest doing it in a similar way is in python-sysv-ipc. Since the source obviously comes from the same developer but the PKGBUILDs are maintained by different contributors the PKGBUILDs differ. The PKGBUILD would look as follows : ============================================================================= pkgname=python-posix-ipc pkgver=0.9.3 pkgrel=1 pkgdesc="POSIX IPC primitives (semaphores, shared memory and message queues) for Python" arch=('any') url="" license=('BSD') groups=() depends=('python') makedepends=('python-distribute') options=(!emptydirs) source=("$pkgver.tar.gz") md5sums=('f0ab54a88e2a18beb012a5d1631826ac') package() { cd "$srcdir/posix_ipc-$pkgver" python install --root="$pkgdir/" --optimize=1 } ============================================================================= What's not working in the current package is when the user issues makepkg -s as non-root user the directory pkg is created without permissions causing a failure. Thus the standard procedure in creating a package will fail, e.g. makepkg -s [user] pacman -U <package> [as root] Anyway maintaining this package similar to the one python-sysv-ipc would be appropriate.
