Description Lukáš Zachar 2019-02-07 11:58:45 UTC
Description of problem:

If I run `python2 setup.py bdist_rpm` it generates script which runs  `python setup.py build` and that causes fail because `python` executable was not found.

I had to add --fix-python so python2 was used inside the script.

Additional info:
I'm not sure how expected it is, but at least documentation might be necessary.

Can you post the "setup.py" file you're using?

Comment 2 Petr Viktorin 2019-02-07 12:03:52 UTC
Or is it python2's own setup.py?

This bug has been reported upstream: https://bugs.python.org/issue4459 But the issue has been closed as REJECTED. It has been rejected while distutils was frozen and distutils2 was being developed. But distutils2 has been abandoned in the meanwhile...

Last comment on the Python upstream:
"FYI, this is fixed in the new bdist_rpm2 command: https://bitbucket.org/tarek/pypi2rpm/changeset/ce6626df0225"

Closing WONTFIX. If a customer has an issue with bdist_rpm, we can re-open.
