The AUR sync bug is finally fixed and I've pushed python2-dbus.

LaughingMan commented on 2021-04-10 05:51

The problem is that the list of official packages doesn't get synced to the AUR, so it thinks that python2-dbus is still available as an official package and blocks my pushes. The relevant bug report is here:

dbus-python is just the python3 version and won't help.

There is now a dbus-python package in extra but makepkg still complains about missing python2-dbus when I have it installed. So thanks for posting the PKGBUILD here: that worked for me ! But should that be filed as a bug ? I am not familiar with doing that...

Checksum verification fails:

Thanks for maintaining!

Thanks for trying the new package LaughingMan.

About flagging, it was a mistake for pyqt4. I though the missing dep was for pyqt4 but no, it was for python2-pyqt4. Even then, for python2-pyqt4, was flagging out-of-date for a non-existing dep accurate? I wasn't sure if we can say that the PKGBUILD is outdated due to pointing to a unexisting dep.

I tried to push a python2-dbus package to AUR but it thinks that's still provided by [extra] and rejects it. Will try again in a few days.

pkgdesc="Python2 bindings for DBUS"
license=('GPL' 'LGPL')
depends=('dbus' 'glib2' 'python2' 'python-dbus-common<1.3' 'python-dbus-common>=1.2')

prepare() {
  cd $_pkgname-$pkgver
  autoreconf -vfi

build() {
  cd $_pkgname-$pkgver

  ./configure --prefix=/usr PYTHON_VERSION=2
  sed -i -e 's/ -shared / -Wl,-O1,--as-needed\0/g' libtool

package() {
  cd $_pkgname-$pkgver
  make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install

  rm -rf "${pkgdir}/usr/share"
  rm -r "${pkgdir}/usr/include"
  rm -r "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/pkgconfig"

PS: Please don't flag packages as out of date just because of a problem. Even more so if the problem isn't even with the package itself.

python2-dbus was dropped from extra repository.

tuxayo commented on 2021-03-17 21:00

Can't upgrade my system because now dbus-python and python2-dbus conflict. And python2-dbus is a dependency of python2-pyqt4.

Actually python2-dbus isn't anymore in the AUR
