I am getting an error: pkgbase should not be an array When trying to build the package.

kazuo commented on 2017-10-20 18:56

The reasoning is:
1) pyxdg is already packaged in extra
2) pyxdg and xdg are not compatible and they can't be installed at same time, they both install under the xdg module (i.e. `import xdg`)

I'm don't know why stig uses xdg instead of pyxdg, I'm not familiar with any of the packages.

Nice thank you.

Yes I agree with you but what is the reasoning of using pyxdg over xdg except it is needed on Arch Linux?

kazuo commented on 2017-10-20 17:02


I'm sorry I forgot about it. I pushed a fix that allow stig-git to run on Arch using `extra/python-xdg`. The use of the package is very minimal, only used to grab the variables, so I just patched the stig source to use the syntax of the one packaged by Arch.

A proper try/import/except fix would be better if submited upstream.

@kazuo did you got any chance to look at this?

kazuo commented on 2017-09-06 01:40

One ideia is to write a patch to stig to use either the pyxdg one or the xdg. I'm little busy right now but I will see if I can do this on the weekend.

Thanks for the heads up.

The error is caused because stig uses and `python-xdg` packages The problem is, I packaged the xdg needed by stig, but if you have both, and they don't file conflict, you still get the error because `import xdg` import the pyxdg one.

I'm not sure how to fix or here to fix.

They switched from appdirs to xdg [1]

I get "pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'xdg' distribution was not found and is required by stig" even with python-xdg installed. Any idea why?

But now I see that he is pushing bugfixes to master and not dev->master. Lets wait to see if he pull then back to dev, if not I will change. Is this ok @quite?

kazuo commented on 2017-01-29 13:20

I'm following upstream recommendation, the development of stig happens on dev and master should be mostly the same as the tagged releases[1].
