Outdated package python-raspberry-gpio

Hi there,

I wanted to control my Raspberry Pi 4 GPIO using a Python library given by the raspberry-gpio-python project over at sourceforge.

After looking around I found an AUR package python-raspberry-gpio which had that exact upstream.
After running yay -S python-raspberry-gpio I noticed it used pacman to perform the download and install instead of yay, as the package was in the official repos.

The problem is when trying to import the python package named RPi.GPIO I get:

$ python
Python 3.8.5 (default, Sep  5 2020, 17:18:53) 
[GCC 10.2.0] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import RPi
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'RPi'

The reason why this happens is quite simple, when installing the package python-raspberry-gpio from the official repos I noticed that the package is installed over at /lib/python3.7/site-packages instead of being installed in /lib/python3.8/site-packages where it’s actually reachable by packages using Python on my system.

As a workaround I tried copying the files from /lib/python3.7/site-packages to /lib/python3.8/site-packages but it didn’t work.
As a second workaround I tried downloading the AUR package by running yay --aur python-raspberry-gpio to ignore the offical repos, but I’m running into the following compiling issue:

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
    Aborting...
error making: python-raspberry-gpio

Obviously I would prefer to use the official repos rather than using the AUR, so if this package could be updated from Python 3.7 to Python 3.8, which I suspect is easy as there’s barely any difference between the two, that would be great.

Thanks in advance!

Because I’m a new user I can’t paste links, which kind of sucks, so here’s a full log of the error because I can’t use pastebin:

I don’t know why you would want to use pastebin. How you post it curently is the advised way.

It was because the log was too big and I didn’t know it collapsed, but yeah it looks good like this.

yay --editmenu -S python-raspberry-gpio

Edit the PKGBUILD with whatever you prefer.

Change
python setup.py install --prefix=/usr --root="$pkgdir" --optimize=1
to
env CFLAGS="-fcommon" python setup.py install --prefix=/usr --root="$pkgdir" --optimize=1

Should build.

Nice, the compiling works. Can you explain to me what difference does that line make and why do I have to add it?

However now I get a runtime error when trying to change the fan status with fanshim:

$ fanshim --noled --on-threshold 65 --off-threshold 55 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/fanshim", line 92, in <module>
    fanshim = FanShim(disable_button=args.nobutton, disable_led=args.noled)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/fanshim/__init__.py", line 32, in __init__
    GPIO.setup(self._pin_fancontrol, GPIO.OUT)
RuntimeError: Not running on a RPi!

Never mind, I didn’t run it with sudo!

Thanks for the help, I’ll close this and accept it as a solution, however I would like to package from the official repos to be updated to avoid this confusion, it’s better to use it rather than the AUR.

gcc10 defaults to -fno-common.

Thanks @wntr . I will rebuild the package and push to all repo’s today. Seems to be working here also:

[ray@pi4 python-raspberry-gpio]$ pip freeze | grep RPi
RPi.GPIO==0.7.0

@wntr I flagged the package out of date on AUR and added a comment with your solution and gave you credit.

python-raspberry-gpio - AUR

Thanks again!!

So in the future if I were to install python-raspberry-gpio from the official repos, it would be the same as having python-raspberry-gpio from the AUR?

Because the python-raspberry-gpio from the official repos still installs the package under /lib/python3.7, is that something that will be fixed?

Yes. The one in the repo was built using the older version of python. Every once in a while we add packages from AUR if the one in AUR is out of date like this one.

I have built and pushed the upgraded python-raspberry-gpio-0.7.0-2 package to all branches. It may take a few hours for the mirrors to sync for it to be there. Do a -Syu every so often and check for it. When it shows up install and test it. It will have a -2 at the end of the package name instead of -1.

Thanks for finding this!!
