Description William Moreno 2016-03-03 20:32:23 UTC
Hi, there is a issue with the spec:


%if 0%{with_python3}

And then in both packages:

This mean you are including in the python2 subpackage a executable than requires the python3 version of this package, you must update your spec to something like:

mv %buildroot/%{_bindir}/%{pypi_name} %buildroot/%{_bindir}/%{pypi_name}-py2

and then in the python2 subpackage

Actually, the guidelines specify how the scripts should be named, so that users can use a sane "default" but also explicitly request a specific version:

There are two cases:
1) If the script works the same under both python2 and python3, only the python3 scripts can be packaged

2) Otherwise, there should be /usr/bin/script, /usr/bin/script-2, /usr/bin/script-2.7 for Python 2, and /usr/bin/script-3, /usr/bin/script-3.5 for Python 3.
You can do that like this:

mv %{buildroot}/%{_bindir}/%{pypi_name} %{buildroot}/%{_bindir}/%{pypi_name}-3 
ln -s %{buildroot}/%{_bindir}/%{pypi_name}-3 %{buildroot}/%{_bindir}/%{pypi_name}-%{python3_version}

ln -s %{buildroot}/%{_bindir}/%{pypi_name} %{buildroot}/%{_bindir}/%{pypi_name}-%2
ln -s %{buildroot}/%{_bindir}/%{pypi_name} %{buildroot}/%{_bindir}/%{pypi_name}-%{python2_version}

Updated to 0.5.1, I fixed the symlinks, now default binary is python3 version.
