Hey xan

I'm building the package twice now. From what I've seen only the two /usr/lib/python folders differ in the two builds, so yeah not the smartest solution but I didn't want to mess too much with autotools.

So the script it builds py3 than py2, then install the whole installation and then does a make install only of the swig folder that built the py2 bindings.

Should be fine, but do some testing.

I had to do this also on sphinxbase for consistency so do a system update, so now also sphinxbase has both py2 and py3 support

hi marcs,

- that would be great, have a look here:

- the package uses autotools, I guess you can cd in the bindings subdir and make install from there to install only python bindings from the new package_python-pocketsphinx() function.

- to build py3 as weel, I guess you could either copy the source dir twice and build each with different configure options, or reconfigure once with py3 in the same build dir. If the lib is not huge maybe option1 would be cleaner.

Hi xantares,

on the page:

the travis script:

The script tests also on python3, so I guess is doable.

To have both i would split this package in two different versions, in Arch style, like:

hi, could we get python3 bindings instead of python2 ? or both ?

I've update the dependency array, hopefully the problem should be fixed.

I solved the compiling issue by installing sphinxbase 0.8 and not 5prealpha

surfhai commented on 2015-11-02 19:26

I think that pocketsphinx 5prealpha depends on gstreamer1.0 not gstreamer0.10 maybe python3 is also needed.

This is the commit that changes from 0.10 to 1.0

blather-git is not working with 5prealpha-1 because of this change. I want to compile the version 0.8 but without success with the initial commit on the aur git repo.

The newest release is 5prealpha, not 0.8

The oneliner sed command would be:

sed -i '/cython/s/$(CPPFLAGS) -I$(sphinxbase)\/python/$(SphinxBase_CFLAGS)/' python/

The old command just removes the CPPFLAGS.

To keep track of things I've added a patch, and left the sed command as a comment, that will be removed with the prealpha5.

Thanks 1124
