I've added a patch for the issue but AUR rejects my updated source package upload with "Invalid name: only lowercase letters are allowed.", though changed nothing else. No idea why, I'll have to investigate.

In the meantime, you can find the updated package here:

This is probably Occurs only when there is no pre-existing Python 2.6 installation on the build system. I'll add a patch later.

Can you build C-extension modules with this version and distutils after you installed it?

s_m commented on 2014-06-20 13:56

Unfortunately the distutils fails for me. With '--nocheck' I was able to build and install the package. This was the error output:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpython2.6
collect2: fout: ld gaf exit-status 1 terug

@SpotlightKid oh, I had a leftover old thing around, somehow.

SpotlightKid commented on 2014-05-24 11:13

Can't reproduce this here, sys.path is correcct. Are you sure, you are using the binary that results from building with this PKGBUILD? As you can see, it is built with './configure --prefix=/usr ...'.

$ python2.6
>>> '/usr/lib/python2.6' in sys.path

SpotlightKid commented on 2014-05-24 11:06

What are you talking about? What do mean by "it" and "believe"?

Kwpolska commented on 2014-05-24 09:06

It’s broken. It believes the lib path is /usr/local/lib/python2.6, when it should be /usr/lib/python2.6.

SpotlightKid commented on 2014-05-18 20:19

Removed "out-of-date" flag since I can't repoduce the problem and reporter has not provided further input.
