Description Miro Hrončok 2019-06-06 23:38:54 UTC
Even after patch from bz1711638 is applied, samba 2:4.10.4-1.fc31 fails to build with Python 3.8.0b1:

Traceback (most recent call last):

AttributeError: module 'time' has no attribute 'clock'

Full logs at https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/g/python/python3.8/package/samba/

time.clock was deprecated and now it is removed:

DeprecationWarning: time.clock has been deprecated in Python 3.3 and will be removed from Python 3.8: use time.perf_counter or time.process_time instead

I suspect that other packages using wafsamba will have the same problem.


This issue is blocking the Python 3.8 rebuilds. If this package won't build with 3.8, it won't be installable, along with all its dependent packages, after the side tag is merged.
Furthermore, as it fails to install, its dependent packages will fail to install and/or build as well. The fix should be pushed on the master branch and no release bump is required.

Testing and mass rebuild of packages is happening in copr. You can follow these instructions to test in locally mock if your package builds with Python 3.8: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/g/python/python3.8/

This issue needs to be resolved by next week, if other rebuilds of Python 3.8 beta 1 go well. If this is unrealistic for you, let us know how much time you need.

If you don't have free cycles to dedicate fixing your package, notify us and we'll try to provide some pointers. Let us know if we can push a fix directly without a pull request, in the case we happen to have one before you do.


Comment 1 Miro Hrončok 2019-06-06 23:40:52 UTC
as expected, libtevent and others have the same failure

Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2019-06-07 10:57:40 UTC
This includes libtalloc, libldb, libtdb, libtevent.

Comment 3 Lukas Slebodnik 2019-06-12 07:49:50 UTC
I cannot reproduce it with  @python/python3.8

mock -r ... --scrub=dnf-cache

Comment 5 Miro Hrončok 2019-06-17 09:45:22 UTC
This issue is blocking the Python 3.8 rebuilds. This package is critical for Fedora, unless this is resolved, we cannot proceed with the side tag merge.

Comment 6 Miro Hrončok 2019-06-30 00:14:21 UTC
Can we please get this fixed?
