@pekkarr Thank you, I was able to get it to build in a clean chroot. Here is the output you asked for, for your information:

[<_distutils_hack.DistutilsMetaFinder object at 0x7f8b4895f850>, <class '_frozen_importlib.BuiltinImporter'>, <class '_frozen_importlib.FrozenImporter'>, <class '_frozen_importlib_external.PathFinder'>]

Hi @mashkioya, could you post the output of running python -c "import sys; print(sys.meta_path)"?

You can also try building in a clean chroot.

My current hypothesis is that the error is caused by some third package adding its own MetaPathFinder to sys.meta_path that doesn't provide the _normalized_name attribute in its provided distributions. This may be related to this bug in python's importlib.

My python version is 3.10.8 and I have python-setuptools-1:63.4.2-1

Here is the full output from makepkg:

Thanks for your help!

@mashkioya What version of python and python-setuptools are you using? Also could you post the full build output?

mashkioya commented on 2022-10-22 11:38 (UTC)

I am getting this error when attempting to build:

AttributeError: 'PathDistribution' object has no attribute '_normalized_name'

There is only a single LICENSE in here, so there is nothing to conflict on. At least that's how I understood "Sources have to be unique in srcdir".

EDIT: I just realized that $srcdir can be overwritten. This should really be made more clear in the packaging guidelines.

Please make sure to name "LICENSE" in a way unique to this package, to ensure it is unique/doesn’t clash with other packages’ source files. (See )

As an example, I’ve used "$_name-$pkgver-LICENSE::$pkgver/LICENSE" for python-mbdata:
