Package builds fine for me with Python 3.12. IIRC it did indeed not build around the time you posted, but now it does. An update to some dependency must have fixed it.

Also I think phonon-qt4 is safe to drop from make/opt depends, as none of the existing applications that use python2-pyqt4 seem to require multimedia playback capability via phonon.

The build of python-pyqt4 is broken on Python 3.12.

It is likely that they can be fixed, but actually you can safely drop the Python3 package of pyqt4. As all its reverse dependencies are already broken, EOL, unmaintained, and pending deletion.

Urgh, thanks for pointing that out. No clue how any of this works or how to fix that, I'm not a Python dev. Tbh, I'm only interested in the Python 2 part of this package, so... patches welcome I guess?

It is building now, thanks. I guess you have seen the warning

@FabioLolix: Should be fixed.

@dale6998: You already mentioned the same problem last year. My comments still apply.

Pushed an updated python2-opengl back online.
