Description Elliott Sales de Andrade 2015-04-21 00:18:37 UTC
gdal-python is only built for Python 2. There's a note that Python 3 should be supported since 1.7, which depending on versions was 4-5 years ago.

Please add support for Python 3, which is aimed to be the default soon(ish).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Add Python 3 support

Here is a patch that seems to work for Fedora at least:


Comment 2 Julien Enselme 2015-07-21 18:05:28 UTC
Any progress? From the patch proposed by Elliott I was able to launch a build on copr today:

It fails to build on rawhide and on ppc64le (all versions). I am afraid that I won't be of much help to find out why.

My SRPM is here: if you are interested.

Comment 3 Volker Fröhlich 2015-07-22 06:00:11 UTC
I started working on it, but it takes quite a bit more work.

Comment 4 Elliott Sales de Andrade 2015-09-10 03:04:45 UTC
Any updates?

The patch appears to work on Fedora 23+Rawhide when using the updated 2.0.0 package:

(The failure is just ppc64le.)

Comment 5 Julien Enselme 2015-09-26 19:57:44 UTC

Any progress on python3 support with gdal 1 or 2?

Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2015-11-04 10:25:32 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 21. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '21'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 21 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Add Python 3 support

You were correct; there was a problem with the dependencies for the Python 3 package where it also depended on the Python 2 interpreter. It was caused by the sample scripts in the documentation portion of the subpackage. I have uploaded a new patch that corrects the shebang on the samples for both the Python 2 and Python 3 subpackages.

Comment 8 Julien Enselme 2016-02-15 20:03:33 UTC
Can you please add support for python or tell me what I can do to help? I have been using gdal with python3 from patches from this bugs for months without any problems.

Anyway, here is an updated patch for gdal 2.0.2.

Python 3 support

The patch you attached is based on the old patch; it does not contain the corrections for dependencies. Attached is a patch with the correct dependencies.

Python 3 support

Fix the typo on NumPy requires.

Comment 12 Jozef Mlich 2016-02-21 09:57:32 UTC
Patch looks fine from my point of view. I don't see any issue that should be fixed before commit. I have pushed it into rawhide.

Comment 13 Jan Kurik 2016-02-24 13:23:09 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
