Hi, could you move python-setuptools-scm from depends to makedepends? Apparently it is used only when building.

I disowned it, have fun :)

I am set up to convert python-pyvisa to a split package that provides both python-pyvisa and python2-pyvisa. To do that, this package would need to be deleted. So if you want to either delete the package or disown it so I can delete it, that would work.

giniu commented on 2018-08-20 16:19 (UTC)

I believe rename of scripts is best option, the approach is taken by most official packages. I can disown the package if you are willing to adopt and update it acordingly, because I won't have time to do this this week. How about it?

This package conflicts with python-pvisa due to the scripts it installs. Please either delete this package so it can be merged into python-pyvisa as a split package, rename the scripts so they do not conflict, or mark the package as a conflicting package.

The URL also has to be updated. I have a new PKGBUILD prepared to update everthing and convert to a split package, just waiting on python2-pyvisa to be deleted so I can upload it.

In case anyone is interested in a more recent version:

< pkgver=1.8
> pkgver=1.9.1
< md5sums=('278ffd67d06026fbe00c62ffe08da094')
> md5sums=('cb53183a78b69ef0cbb8099d5019a91c')

EDIT: Formatting for the diff added.

I think a dependency of python2-enum34 is missing. It was needed for executing: $ python2 -m visa info

@Francois_B - I do not believe into split packages in AUR, and prefer to not maintain two versions (I still use Py2 for most things, so it's easier to test). I would for sure add Py3 version if this package was to move into community, but it lacks required votes :)

Francois_B commented on 2014-09-15 01:38 (UTC)

Maybe you can package the python3 version as well :)

Can this be renamed python2-pyvisa to avoid confusion?

giniu commented on 2012-08-23 21:34 (UTC)

fixed, thanks for noticing

alex.forencich commented on 2012-08-23 21:13 (UTC)

Aha! You also need python2-docutils to build. This should be added to makedepends.

alex.forencich commented on 2012-08-23 21:01 (UTC)

I'm getting error: invalid command 'build_data' when I try to install. Any ideas?

giniu commented on 2011-04-06 14:55 (UTC)

Works now, thanks :)

imrehg commented on 2011-04-06 10:07 (UTC)

Well, the time I originally made this I haven't had access to 64bit system. Updated pkgbuild, should work now. (Did not bump pkgrel according to AUR guidelines but now you can use on 64bit system without editing package)

giniu commented on 2011-04-05 16:28 (UTC)

Hmm... the build seems to work on 64bit, also the module imports. Are there any issues with this package on 64 bits that you included only i686 version?
