Comment 1 Jonathan S. 2022-03-27 16:59:58 UTC
I created a PR here:


This requires a newer aiorpcx, for which I also created a PR here:


Comment 2 Jonathan S. 2022-03-28 08:07:53 UTC
Without this update, a Trezor hardware wallet cannot be used on Fedora 36, so it would be important to get this in before Fedora 36 to not break users. The reason for this being that python-trezorlib was updated, but the newer version no longer works with the old Electrum currently in Fedora 36.

Comment 3 Jonny Heggheim 2022-03-28 09:32:23 UTC
https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/python-aiorpcx/pull-request/2 for rawhide + build, but not for other branches.

Comment 4 Jonny Heggheim 2022-03-28 09:33:48 UTC
* I have Merged

Comment 5 Jonny Heggheim 2022-03-29 20:34:29 UTC
What Fedora versions do you intend to upgrade Electrum for?

Comment 6 Jonathan S. 2022-04-01 09:23:49 UTC
F36 should definitely be updated, as currently Electrum there is broken due to too new trezorlib.

Comment 7 Henrik Nordström 2022-04-12 20:04:11 UTC
New version is in rawhide.


Comment 8 Henrik Nordström 2022-04-12 20:06:26 UTC
For f36 the depencencies needs to be resolved first. This is a very picky package, requiring very specific dependencies.

Comment 9 Jonathan S. 2022-04-12 22:25:02 UTC
For F36, all dependencies are at the right version except for python-aiorpcx-0.22.1, which was held back until Electrum is updated.

Can you two coordinate to push both to F36 beta on the same day? I don't think it's possible to push two packages at once if they have different maintainers, is it?

Comment 10 Henrik Nordström 2022-04-13 02:25:05 UTC
Coordinated build & push is best done using a sidetag (the better alternative to a buildroot override), but never tried with packages having completly different maintainers.

Comment 11 Jonny Heggheim 2022-04-13 07:37:45 UTC
python-aiorpcx-0.22.1-1.fc36 is being built now: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=85599483

I have never used side-tags before, just let me know if you want it for Fedora 36.

As a side note, the requires for Electrum 4.2.1 is:
(python3.10dist(aiorpcx) < 0.23~~ with python3.10dist(aiorpcx) >= 0.22)

and Electrum 4.1.5 is:

(python3.10dist(aiorpcx) < 0.19 with python3.10dist(aiorpcx) >= 0.18.7)

So that there will be no breakage, only a delay in case Electrum is updated later, so I feel like pushing python-aiorpcx-0.22.1-1.fc36 to testing.

As a side note, I think both of you should have access to python-aiorpcx, I will send an email to the maintainer (since I do not have admin access)

Comment 13 Jonny Heggheim 2022-04-13 08:35:43 UTC
The build failed, so I am rebuild with side tag:

Build Target: f36-build-side-52728


Comment 14 Jonny Heggheim 2022-04-19 18:48:36 UTC
I gave up waiting for other builds on the same tag, not sure how it works. Added python-aiorpcx-0.22.1-1.fc36 to bodhi https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2022-519cc9c62b

Could you update Electrum 4.2.1 for Fedora 36?

Comment 15 Jonny Heggheim 2022-04-19 18:49:23 UTC
Re-open since Electrum is broken on Fedora 36.

Comment 16 Jonathan S. 2022-04-20 09:11:17 UTC
F36 is coming closer, and if nothing happens, the upgrade to F36 will just break Electrum and make people panic they lost their money.

Can we please get this pushed? I'm more than happy to push it to testing as a single update if I get push rights for both Electrum and aiorpcx - I just want to see this fixed before F36 releases.

Comment 17 Henrik Nordström 2022-04-21 19:33:09 UTC
f36 build scheduled
