Description James Harmison 2022-07-12 21:59:37 UTC
Description of problem:
Azote's executable is a shell script that uses a python one-liner to identify the python purelib path. This one-liner has not been updated in accordance with the following guidance:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install azote
2. Attempt to start azote from the terminal (or otherwise)

Actual results:
$ azote
/usr/bin/azote: line 4: cd: /usr/local/lib/python3.10/site-packages/azote: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/python3: can't open file '/home/james/Projects/home-infra/main.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

Expected results:
Azote should start

Additional info:
$ cat $(which azote)

LIB=$(python3 -Ic "from sysconfig import get_path; print(get_path('purelib'))")
cd $LIB/azote
exec /usr/bin/python3 main.py "$@"

It should be as simple as a patch to change the `get_path` call to include the `rpm_prefix` scheme.

Comment 1 James Harmison 2022-07-13 18:56:34 UTC
I've never contributed to dist-git for Fedora before so I may have messed something up, but mockbuilds for rawhide and f36 work fine with my patch in the pull requests I opened.


I don't think upstreaming would be appropriate as these changes related to Fedora-specific packaging of Python libraries.

Additionally, I have this to offer showing a functional program with these changes:

Apologies for the delay @bob.hepple


Works fine, just normal Azote bugs left to clean up upstream now. Thanks.
