Xpra: Ticket #1883: packaging for mingw64 / MSYS2

We should be able to submit this as a package to MSYS2: https://github.com/msys2/msys2/wiki/Creating-Packages.

Thu, 21 Jun 2018 10:12:12 GMT - Antoine Martin: owner, summary changed

Python build changes mostly completed in r19684. We can now install xpra locally from an MSYS2 shell with:

rm -fr dist/*
python ./setup.py clean
python ./setup.py install --prefix=./dist --share=share/xpra --with-scripts
rsync -rplogt dist/* ${MINGW_PREFIX}/

Still TODO:

@smo: can you help with any of this?

Update from the transition to python 3.7 (#1878) done by msys2:

python-zeroconf (original feature ticket: #1644) dropped support for python2 in version 0.20 (see python2-zeroconf: updated to 0.20.0, but 0.20.0 dropped python2 support), but something is not right and using easy_install will pickup the latest (broken) version, so we have to be specific about it: r20193. No such problems with python3.

Here's a slightly more tricky one: pygtkglext as per ticket:678#comment:27 (2 patches and a workaround for the install step), it was MIA from my 64-bit build VM, fortunately the new "native" backend was working OK so I didn't notice!

Sun, 21 Oct 2018 18:34:32 GMT - Antoine Martin:

Minor update: rencode 1.0.6, see r20754

@smo: see ticket:2004#comment:3 for libyuv.

Still waiting on this merge. https://github.com/Alexpux/MINGW-packages/pull/4595

Wed, 28 Nov 2018 15:34:38 GMT - Antoine Martin:

Can you update what has been merged and replace easy_install with pacman in the setup and update scripts?

Thu, 29 Nov 2018 12:30:45 GMT - Antoine Martin:

Found that paramiko, comtypes, netifaces and rencode are available in MSYS2 now, so r21147 switches to that.

Here is a link to all the closed merge requests.


nvidia-ml-py seems to be the only open one still

Useful link: thesmo pull requests

r21483 switches to MSYS2 packages for: websocket-client, setproctitle, pyu2f, ldap, ldap3, bcrypt and pynacl. Also zeroconf, but only for python3 (see below, comment:5).

Important libraries left to package / fix:

With the two build files above, I can generate a working installation of xpra.

Still TODO:

Thu, 31 Jan 2019 16:04:58 GMT - Antoine Martin:

Sent pull request for https://github.com/Alexpux/MINGW-packages/pull/4937.

Fri, 01 Feb 2019 14:56:58 GMT - Antoine Martin: owner, status changed

The pull request has been merged, I have made a new one for python-nvidia-ml - the one above was broken for python3.

Since 2.5 will drop websockify (#2121) and make "native" the default opengl backend (r21382), there aren't many important packages left to fix / add from comment:15:

Fri, 01 Feb 2019 16:15:37 GMT - Antoine Martin:

pull request for python-zeroconf: https://github.com/Alexpux/MINGW-packages/pull/4941 with one build file for each python version.

Mon, 04 Feb 2019 15:41:28 GMT - Antoine Martin:

As of r21532 + r21533 + r21534, minimal builds don't include anything at all, not even any python bits. Adding --with-data we get just the extra bits we need for packaging "xpra-common".
