build failed with "/usr/bin/xvfb-run: line 186: kill: (1576374) - No such process"

xvfb-run says in its help, that "-a" is deprecated, one should use "-d" instead. I replaced the two occurences in the PKGBUILD, then the build process was successfull.

I used this command to import the key

gpg --keyserver --receive-keys 0D96DF4D4110E5C43FBFB17F2D347EA6AA65421D

I have imported and signed the GPG key: pacman-key --list-keys

pub   rsa4096 2014-11-02 [SC]
uid          [  totale ] Ned Deily (Python release signing key) <>
uid          [  totale ] Ned Deily (Python release signing key) <>
uid          [  totale ] Ned Deily <>
uid          [  totale ] <>
sub   rsa4096 2014-11-02 [E]

But I'm still getting a GPG error and I'm not sure why:

==> Vérification des signatures des fichiers sources grâce à gpg…
    Python-3.7.9.tar.xz ... ÉCHEC (Clé publique inconnue 2D347EA6AA65421D)
==> ERREUR : Une ou plusieurs signatures PGP n’ont pas pu être vérifiées.

@DMolt, it make sense to follow what is done for python35 and python36 in that regard and go without ensurepip.

Hi, I use python 3.7 for some projects with virtualenv and 3.8 for other and system. To install this I have to change --with-ensurepip with --without-ensurepip

@surrealistic above in the logs, you should see why the _posixsubprocess module is not building successfully.

Hi! I'm having this issue with subprocess while tying to upgrade python37 and also after uninstalling it to try a clean installation of it.

It's like it can't find or recognize subprocess. I searched on Google about the error and I've tried to install subprocess32 with python3.7 -m pip install subprocess32 but it returns the same error. After all those attempts I decided to try a clean installation so I removed python3.7 to install it again instead of upgrading it, but it keeps returning the same error.

Thanks greut, and thanks 5long for initial package.

@jrd I've taken the patch from the bug mentioned ( and added you as a co-maintainer.

You can click "Adopt Package" in "Package Actions" in the top right. Then it's yours. :D
