yep, it contains a .so object so 'any' arch is no applicable. ...but you can always build with --ignorearch to solve your problem.

And if this package doesn't have any binary, I think the arch can just be 'any'?

Edit: Never mind, it does actually build something so I'd request adding aarch64 instead. :)

fixed. sorry, i must have missed the initial message...

Please. Fix the PKGBUILD. From digging around, I think Arch is suggesting to add a _name variable for python packages vs. the hardcoded solution proposed by razer:





cd "$srcdir/$_name-$pkgver"

Need change in path to get it building and installing (see cd commands below)

# Maintainer: Radek Podgorny <>

pkgdesc="Python bindings for Linux SPI access through spidev"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'armv6h' 'armv7h')

build() {
cd "$srcdir/spidev-$pkgver"
python build

package() {
cd "$srcdir/spidev-$pkgver"
python install --root="$pkgdir/" --optimize=1

Proposed new PKGBUILD file: Version 3.2, sources from pypi

this is not the official spidev upstream, and it is not working with this lib :

When the official upstream python package is:

forked from python2-spidev (not only the pkgbuild but also the github repository as well).
