Patch hopefully moving off of py2-based dependencies entirely

I had to modify the PKGBUILD adding this at the end of the prepare section:

patch SConstruct ../scons-py3.patch

xschlef commented on 2019-09-18 06:26

please update the PKGBUILD, so the scons patch is correctly applied

Visione commented on 2019-08-06 14:29

edit: if you experience a Python mismatch in the SConstruct file.

Navigate to your package managers cache folder. For yay this would be: /home/user/.cache/yay/xboxdrv

uncomment line 31 in the PKGBUILD file

:30: # activate this patch when scons gets switched back to py3

:31: patch -p1 < "${srcdir}/scons-py3.patch"

Run makepkg as per default in said folder to build without errors.

Once build continue by (re)installing through Yay (recommended) or copy the files manually.

I noticed by controllers not working in games anymore when using xboxdrv - it used to work and I didn't change config. Did something about this package break or is it working for you?

@anthraxx: I'm definitely using scons 3.0.0-3 and python2 is installed.

anthraxx commented on 2017-11-07 08:42

@milbo: then you are most likely not using scons scons 3.0.0-3 from our repositories which uses python2. Also this is not a general help desk Arch Linux users are expected to be advanced and bring in some debugging themselves. Also all needed information about this issue should be in the comments.
