libtalloc fails to build with Python 3.12.0a3.
The distutils module is unusable: install "python-devel"?
Remove the distutils package. It was deprecated in Python 3.10 by PEP 632 “Deprecate distutils module”. For projects still using distutils and cannot be updated to something else, the setuptools project can be installed: it still provides distutils. (Contributed by Victor Stinner in gh-92584.)
If your package is listed in , you may workaround this issue by BuildRequiring python-setuptools, note that adding such BuildRequires might however hide some transitive dependency problem, if the distutils import comes from a dependency.
Cooperation with upstream is recommended. Additional context .
For the build logs, see:
For all our attempts to build libtalloc with Python 3.12, see:
Testing and mass rebuild of packages is happening in copr. You can follow these instructions to test locally in mock if your package builds with Python 3.12:
Let us know here if you have any questions.
Python 3.12 is planned to be included in Fedora 39. To make that update smoother, we're building Fedora packages with all pre-releases of Python 3.12.
A build failure prevents us from testing all dependent packages (transitive [Build]Requires), so if this package is required a lot, it's important for us to get it fixed soon.
We'd appreciate help from the people who know this package best, but if you don't want to work on this now, let us know so we can try to work around it on our side.
I reported it at waf upstream:
FEDORA-2023-39bd85a8ed has been submitted as an update to Fedora 38. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2023-39bd85a8ed
FEDORA-2023-39bd85a8ed has been pushed to the Fedora 38 stable repository.
If problem still persists, please make note of it in this bug report.
