@Max-P: Please do not litter PKGBUILDs with ad-hoc cleanup code. The proper way to do this is to use makepkg --cleanbuild to build your packages.

Max-P commented on 2024-05-13 08:05 (UTC)

No you were right, it still didn't build because of line 58, just because my fix didn't work and not because I just unflagged it for no reason. Should be resolved now (hopefully, this package is cursed). I was trying to delete the bare minimum to avoid an rm-rf incident.

When I unflag packages with no changes I usually comment or email the reason. Just check the change history next time before assuming a maintainer didn't, sometimes we just mess up the fixes ^^"

Also removing the line entirely would break the package next update as most AUR helpers reuse the directory as-is, and this creates two distribution wheels and fails to package. It's there for a reason, hopefully now it builds for everyone correctly.

I apologise for any confusion caused, this issue was on my end (I think) but it appeared vaguely similar to the first one, so I assumed it still wasn't fixed. I'll let you know if any more issues pop up.

Looks like one needs to comment out line 58 for package to build.

Alright this is getting ridiculous. I've rebuilt the PKGBUILD on top of the one from [extra] fresh, so it should be good now.

It looks like the package now wantw python-wheel as dependencies but it should be in a make dependencies because if I'm not wrong, it is used to produce a .whl package only part of the installation

@npreining Solaar now bundles that library and installs it system-wide, so it no longer needs python-hid-parser and also conflicts with it.

I just added the missing Python makedepends and a replaces array to mark it as replacing python-hid-parser.

What is going on with hid-parser versus solaar? I see a lot of comments in this thread, but it seems that the two are in conflict. I tried removing/reinstalling solaar, to no avail.

It appears that python-build and python-installer should ALSO be marked as make dependencies.

After installing python-build and python-installer this package installed fine.

The problem: neither are in the AUR and are instead in Extra.

I got an error during install:

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'setuptools'

I fixed it by installing python-setuptools. Should setuptools be added as a (make) dependency?
