Is there really a need for the hard dependency on python3.6? And why is there a make dependency on rpmextract when it isn't used?

@ytg123: sort of? basically this week is my finals week after 2 weeks straight of multiple major projects being due, so my time is quite constrained atm, please hang tight until early next week at the latest

Hello refi.64, Swift 5.4 has been released and this package has been marked out of date at 26/04. Quite some time has passed since then, but it seems as though no updates have been made. Is an update in progress?

hey refi.64, can you please update, there is an important fix in 5.3.2:

I had a heck of a time getting this to work with clion but I found this:

Don't know if I'm being helpful or cluttering things up, feel free to delete.

Also, I used symlinks instead and it works well.

@soloturn: sorry for the delay, should be fixed now @ShinoYasx: added, thanks

@refi.64 swift-language-git is now updated to provide "swift-language-git", and it installs into /usr/lib/swift-git. can you pls remove the "conflicts" so both can be installed?

as builds an eternity there is a binary build here now:

Hello, I think it would be great to create a ldconfig file. Something like

echo '/usr/lib/swift/lib/swift/linux' >> /etc/

And add a post install script to run ldconfig.

It would be useful for running swift applications where the shared libraries aren't in the same place for building system and user system.

carsme: sorry for the delayed reply, just fixed that, it was still set to depend on py3 from the previously used Fedora binaries vs the current official CentOS ones.

@typoisovok thanks a lot, also I guess you mean symlinking /usr/lib/swift rather than /usr/bin/swift.
