@Perdu, I added python-pbr to makedepends array (it is only required for installation). Thanks for noticing!

Perdu commented on 2018-10-23 08:25

python-pbr is missing as a dependency, otherwise build fails: distutils.errors.DistutilsError: Could not find suitable distribution for Requirement.parse('pbr')

Sorry, missed that. Should be fixed now. Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks edio for fixing it. However, the package of pyyaml is called python-yaml.

edio commented on 2018-08-31 14:07

@xduugu, thank you for suggested fixes. Done.

xduugu commented on 2018-08-30 20:09

Could you fix some more issues in the PKGBUILD?

  • python-setuptools and python-yaml should be added as dependencies, python can be removed as it is already a dependency of the python packages
  • from namcap: "randrctl-git E: GPLv3 is not a common license (it's not in /usr/share/licenses/common/)" -> license needs to be changed to "GPL3"

Thanks for reporting.

I moved away from packit to pbr (still not bare setup-tools, but hope this will cause less troubles).

Also I added python-argcomplete package to dependencies array.

The way packit was installed failed big time with me

  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", 
    dists.sort(key=operator.attrgetter('hashcmp'), reverse=True)
TypeError: '<' not supported between instances of 'Version' and 'Vers
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

Manually pip installing it resolved it (pip3 install --user packit)

Current version also depends on python-argcomplete

Couldn't build, this patch fixed it:

@drws, pip may be the culprit. I'll add it to make deps shortly.

Thanks a lot for reporting and digging into this.
