I've pushed the version which is fixed for Python 3.10 now that it is in the normal official repos.

@adsun I'm aware of the problem, see my previous comment. I also saw the patch but simply use PYTHONWARNINGS=ignore for now.

The build fails with the recently released python version 3.10. A commit on the project's Github repository fixes this:

It won't build against Python 3.10:

Please check your Python installation. The error was:
<string>:1: DeprecationWarning: The distutils package is deprecated and slated for removal in Python 3.12. Use setuptools or check PEP 632 for potential alternatives

I've pushed a fix on and my binary repo's staging already contains a rebuilt package. I'll update the AUR package once Python 3.10 enters the normal/official repositories.

@Martchus: I'd say it's long overdue to drop Python 2. Either way, both Python 2 & 3 modules should not be installed in the same package.

@nathanielcwm See And don't flag packages as out-of-date when you run into build errors.

I'm getting this error when trying to build.

Installing texlive-latexextra fixes that but I also need to remove doxygen or else it will have a different error while building

Martchus - Thanks! For time's sake I just uninstalled doxygen -- installed ffmpeg-full-nvenc which pulled in pocketsphinx/sphinxbase -- and everything compiled fine. Not sure what pulled in doxygen. I'll look into using makechrootpkg also. Thanks again!

Martchus commented on 2020-02-07 16:15 (UTC)

@markginter31 By the way, "Clean install of Manjaro" is really not useful. If you want to specify your build environment, better provide the output of e.g. pacman -Q. A "clean" build environment is generally a build environment with only the required packages for the build and packages belonging to the base-devel group:

Martchus commented on 2020-02-07 16:10 (UTC)

I could reproduce the problem by installing doxygen into the build root. If it is installed the build system automatically detects it and tries to build the documentation which fails. I couldn't find a configure option to disable that behavior. However, it is recommended anyways to use makechrootpkg to build in a clean chroot so I won't put any effort into it. If someone wants to provide a patch I'd incorporate it of course.

but anytime I try to compile sphinxbase-git it fails

Note that this is sphinxbase, not sphinxbase-git (although both package have the same problem).

Same error as arekishi ... tried with python3.6 and python3.8 -- but always fails at doc creation. Everything appears to compile fine. Clean install of Manjaro -- ran into the failure when compiling ffmpeg-full-nvenc. I was able to comment out the pocketsphinx references in ffmpeg -- but anytime I try to compile sphinxbase-git it fails.

Possibly related?? (same error - but with python 3.9)...
