Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) 2010-04-24 18:22:31 UTC
- If this package can be used as a library and installs Python modules (*.so or *.py) into site-packages directories, then consider supporting installation for multiple Python versions. Please read section "Types of packages" in documentation  to decide if this package can support installation for multiple Python versions. - Ensure that the ebuilds do not use deprecated functions or variables. - Please check if Python 3 is supported by this package. You can temporarily set Python 3 as main active version of Python to properly test if this package supports Python 3. - If this package does not support Python 3: - Specify dependency on Python 2. You can use PYTHON_DEPEND helper variable, which should be set before inheriting of python eclass. Please read section "Specification of dependency on Python" in documentation . - If this package cannot support installation for multiple versions of Python, then set active version of Python using python_set_active_version(). - Ensure that shebangs in installed scripts specify correct version of Python. If shebangs are too generic (e.g. '#!/usr/bin/python'), then you can use python_convert_shebangs() to convert shebangs. (Wrapper scripts generated by python_generate_wrapper_scripts() do not require any changes.) Please read section "Shebangs in installed scripts" in documentation . - To ensure that changes applied to the ebuilds are sufficient, please temporarily set Python 3 as main active version of Python and test if this package can be properly installed and if it works at run time. Please see documentation  for more details.  http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/Python/developersguide.xml

gdb doesnt install any .py files. it merely links against it.
Comment 2 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) 2010-09-11 19:40:33 UTC
sys-devel/gdb-7.2 fails to build when Python 3.* is set as main active version of Python.

Created attachment 246901 [details] gdb-7.2:20100911-194437.log
Comment 4 SpanKY 2010-09-12 03:24:41 UTC
then post a patch where gdb only requires python-2 in the ebuild. or i can simply change the depend to =dev-lang/python-2*. the current python.eclass wrongly requires app-admin/eselect-python unconditionally, so inheriting that isnt an option.
Comment 5 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) 2010-09-12 11:40:04 UTC
Created attachment 246959 [details, diff] gdb-7.2.ebuild.patch sys-devel/gdb-7.2 is misported to EAPI="3". econf() is called twice.

thanks, that looks good to me http://sources.gentoo.org/sys-devel/gdb/gdb-7.2.ebuild?r1=1.2&r2=1.3
