My version is: '67.6.1'

@kayprish hmm this is curious, as far as I can tell the error message is coming from setuptools, what version of setuptools do you have installed?

kayprish commented on 2023-04-19 08:44 (UTC)

I've tried uninstalling all of my user packages and then installing pypdf3 and it's still failing, so I assume it's not that

@kayprish I can build in a clean chroot fine (using python 3.10), could you give a list of locally installed pip packages: pip list --user I suspect there is some conflict coming from there.

For me, the package won't build, it generates the following error:

I assume something has changed about python 3.10, which makes the old setup code invalid.

@kernelisstrong awesome, I was really confused there for a moment :P

kernelisstrong commented on 2023-03-10 13:38 (UTC)

It seems that it was picking the user's setuptools and not the system one. Fixed it. Sorry for reporting this.

kernelisstrong commented on 2023-03-10 13:33 (UTC)

I got the one in the official repos. 67.4.0-1

hv15 commented on 2023-03-10 13:28 (UTC)

@kernelisstrong hmm the log message seems to indicate that the version of setuptools you have is too old, what version do you have installed?
