You should apply those 2 patches from python37 to fix compilation of the decimal module: 0003-enable-building-with-libmpdec.patch and 0004-mpdecimal-2.5.1.patch.

In pkgbuild there is such thing:

  # Avoid conflicts with the main 'python' package, once Python 3.7 is standard.
  rm "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/libpython${_pymajver}.so"

Why deleting /usr/lib/ instead of moving it to /usr/lib/ I did it such way:

  mv "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/libpython${_pymajver}.so" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/libpython${_pybasever}.so"

and then Davinci Resolve could detect python 3.6. Without it it cannot detect python 3.6. See

Can you replace that rm line with mv line?

Sure, no problem.

Could you evaluate the possibility to add arm and pentium4 arch in your pkgbuild ? (For Archlinux ARM and ArchLinux32 respectivly) While it's of course possible to manually edit the pkgbuild for each updates, it would be more convenient if it where already there.

Does anyone know why these errors are happening?

pkgrel bumped, works again.

dani commented on 2020-04-16 05:20 (UTC)

please make it support

This needs a pkgrel bump since libffi was updated.

Because enabling optimizations adds a lot of build time – I for one would not upgrade my Python as regularly if every update took 40 minutes of heavy CPU use. Adding --enable-optimizations is, as you've seen, fairly doable on your own, but I think adding it by default would be a poor choice.

Why does this package not use --enable-optimizations?
