-current, bug in the SlackBuild for python-setuptools-40.2.0-x86_64-1.txz


I was building the "setuptools" with the source directory from the "-current".

Here is the output :
Code:
[11:58] root@HAL <python-setuptools>$ ./python-setuptools.SlackBuild 
tar: /home/nausx/src/python-setuptools/setuptools-40.2.0.tar.tar.?z*: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
At the line 37 :
Code:
VERSION=${VERSION:-$(echo setuptools-*.tar.?z* | rev | cut -f 3- -d . | cut -f 1 -d - | rev)}
"$VERSION" contains the version with ".tar".

I don't know if it's intended but the "echo" part returns the filenames setuptools-40.2.0.tar.xz and setuptools-40.2.0.tar.xz.mirrorlist because of "?z*". Then the reverse puts the mirrorlist in front before the cut.

Later in the script at the line 65 :
Code:
tar xvf $CWD/$SRCNAM-$VERSION.tar.?z* || exit 1
This is where it actually fail since it adds a new ".tar" at the end.

The file "setuptools-40.2.0.tar.xz.mirrorlist" is not part of the Slackware source tree.
Check your download. The only issue is on your computer.

I'll change the build script to use .?z instead of .?z* with the next update. I've done this elsewhere, but usually only where I'm trying to keep an upstream GPG signature.

Thanks.

Right, however it is found in mirrors.slackware.com, to help find a mirror near you using mirrorbrain. For instance (this is for Slackware64-14.2 but that works of course the same for -current):
Code:
didier[/tmp]$ lftp -c "mirror https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware/slackware64-14.2/source/d/python-setuptools/"
didier[/tmp]$ ls -1 python-setuptools/
python-setuptools.SlackBuild
python-setuptools.SlackBuild.mirrorlist
setuptools-22.0.5.tar.xz
setuptools-22.0.5.tar.xz.mirrorlist
slack-desc
slack-desc.mirrorlist
didier[/tmp]$
Running for instance "firefox slack-desc.mirrorlist" shows a web page allowing to select a mirror.

So I assume that the OP downloaded from this mirror.

IIRC this stuff is maintained by Robby.

[OT]Thanks your last updates of Chromium and VLC. Much appreciated![/OT]

Elsewhere? like gobject-introspection? That one has pretty much the same issue. But like Alien pointed out, it seems that I got those sources where I'm not supposed to go. I'll use a mirror directly next time. I didn't check and assumed I was redirected to a proper mirror.

I use the https://mirrors.slackware.com for autoselect and apparently it keeps redirecting me on the official where, I assure you, I can see those files.

Code:
[17:09] nausx@HAL <~>$ lftp http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware/slackware64-current/source/d/python-setuptools/ <<< 'cls -1'
cd: received redirection to `https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware/slackware64-current/source/d/python-setuptools/'
python-setuptools.SlackBuild                                   
python-setuptools.SlackBuild.mirrorlist
python-setuptools.url
python-setuptools.url.mirrorlist
setuptools-40.2.0.tar.xz
setuptools-40.2.0.tar.xz.mirrorlist
slack-desc
slack-desc.mirrorlist
I sincerely doubt my computer is trolling me and added those lines.

It is not as I explained in my previous post.
However here is a simple solution (call it a workaround if you prefer):
Code:
rm python-setuptools/*mirrorlist

Shameless plug, but I have a script you can use to help you find the fastest mirror, rather than relying on mirrors.slackware.com. It is preset with the US mirrors (to make it a bit faster), but you can replace that section with any other mirrors (easiest to pull from /etc/slackpkg/mirrors).

Of course it is, I was just thinking if it's going to be public better tell someone to fix it as maybe they didn't see it but that was before I realized I was using the wrong mirror due to redirection.

BTW, the post where I ironically say my computer is not trolling me has, in fact, been sent before your post but has been queued for moderation I think.
