Description Miro Hrončok 2021-03-22 10:43:32 UTC
lvm2 fails to build after the recent commit in dist-git:

checking for getopt.h... (cached) yes
checking for EDITLINE... no
configure: error: libedit could not be found which is required for the --enable-readline option.

For the build logs, see:

We are testing Fedora packages with Python 3.10.
Pushing an untested change like this to dist-git only creates unnecessary noise. Please fix or revert the change. Thanks.

For all our attempts to build lvm2 with Python 3.10, see:

Testing and mass rebuild of packages is happening in copr. You can follow these instructions to test locally in mock if your package builds with Python 3.10:

Let us know here if you have any questions.

Python 3.10 will be included in Fedora 35. To make that update smoother, we're building Fedora packages with early pre-releases of Python 3.10.
A build failure prevents us from testing all dependent packages (transitive [Build]Requires), so if this package is required a lot, it's important for us to get it fixed soon.
We'd appreciate help from the people who know this package best, but if you don't want to work on this now, let us know so we can try to work around it on our side.
