Re: [RFC PATCH] python: remove Python 2 and all supporting classes

Ross,

On 1/17/20 6:16 AM, Ross Burton wrote:
Python 2 ceased being maintained on the 1st January 2020.  We've already
removed all users of it from oe-core so the final step is to move the
recipe and supporting classes to meta-python2.

The following are removed in this commit:
- python and python-native 2.7.17
- python-setuptools
- The classes pythonnative, pythondir, distutils, setuptools
Thanks for doing this.

and an Ack if you are looking for it.

-
-Fix below warning:
-WARNING: Skipping RPATH /usr/lib64 as is a standard search path for
-work/x86_64-linux/python-native/2.7.15-r1.1/recipe-sysroot-native/
-usr/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/_bsddb.so
-
-setup.py will check db.h under include_dirs, for native build,
-/usr/lib64 will be insert to postion 0 of include_dirs, so
-it's priority is higher then our sysroot, cause db.h sysroot
-is ignored, and rpath set to /usr/lib64. and this cause warning
-when do_populate_sysroot. use append to fix it.

-Subject: [PATCH] python: Resolve intermediate staging issues
-
-When cross compiling python, we used to need to install the Makefile, pyconfig.h
-and the python library to their final location before being able to compile the
-rest of python. This change allows us to point python at its own source when
-building, avoiding a variety of sysroot staging issues and simplifying the main
-python recipe.

-Subject: [PATCH] python2: use cc_basename to replace CC for checking compiler
-
-When working path contains "clang"/"gcc"/"icc", it might be part of $CC
-because of the "--sysroot" parameter. That could cause judgement error
-about clang/gcc/icc compilers. e.g.
-When "icc" is containded in working path, below errors are reported when
-compiling python:
-x86_64-wrs-linux-gcc: error: strict: No such file or directory
-x86_64-wrs-linux-gcc: error: unrecognized command line option '-fp-model'
-
-Here use cc_basename to replace CC for checking compiler to avoid such
-kind of issue.

-This patch was added for 64bit host machines. In the compile process python
-is checking if platform is a 64bit platform using sys.maxint which is the host's
-value. The patch fixes this issue so that python would check if TARGET machine
-is 64bit not the HOST machine. In this way will have "dl" and "imageop" modules
-built if HOST machine is 64bit but the target machine is 32bit.

-# This script is used as a bitbake task to create a new python manifest
-# $ bitbake python -c create_manifest
-#
-# Our goal is to keep python-core as small as posible and add other python
-# packages only when the user needs them, hence why we split upstream python
-# into several packages.
-#
-# In a very simplistic way what this does is: 
-# Launch python and see specifically what is required for it to run at a minimum
-#
-# Go through the python-manifest file and launch a separate task for every single
-# one of the files on each package, this task will check what was required for that
-# specific module to run, these modules will be called dependencies.
-# The output of such task will be a list of the modules or dependencies that were
-# found for that file.
-#
-# Such output will be parsed by this script, we will look for each dependency on the
-# manifest and if we find that another package already includes it, then we will add
-# that package as an RDEPENDS to the package we are currently checking; in case we dont
-# find the current dependency on any other package we will add it to the current package
-# as part of FILES.
-#
-#
-# This way we will create a new manifest from the data structure that was built during
-# this process, on this new manifest each package will contain specifically only
-# what it needs to run.
-#
-# There are some caveats which we try to deal with, such as repeated files on different
-# packages, packages that include folders, wildcards, and special packages.
-# Its also important to note that this method only works for python files, and shared
-# libraries. Static libraries, header files and binaries need to be dealt with manually.

-Subject: [PATCH] closes bpo-34585: Don't do runtime test to get float byte
- order. (GH-9085)
-
-Currently configure.ac uses AC_RUN_IFELSE to determine the byte order of doubles, but this silently fails under cross compilation and Python doesn't do floats properly.
-
-Instead, steal a macro from autoconf-archive which compiles code using magic doubles (which encode to ASCII) and grep for the representation in the binary.
-
-RFC because this doesn't yet handle the weird ancient ARMv4 OABI 'mixed-endian' encoding properly. This encoding is ancient and I don't believe the union of "Python 3.8 users" and "OABI users" has anything in. Should the support for this just be dropped too? Alternatively, someone will need to find an OABI toolchain to verify the encoding of the magic double.

-+# SYNOPSIS
-+#
-+#   AX_C_FLOAT_WORDS_BIGENDIAN([ACTION-IF-TRUE], [ACTION-IF-FALSE], [ACTION-IF-UNKNOWN])
-+#
-+# DESCRIPTION
-+#
-+#   Checks the ordering of words within a multi-word float. This check is
-+#   necessary because on some systems (e.g. certain ARM systems), the float
-+#   word ordering can be different from the byte ordering. In a multi-word
-+#   float context, "big-endian" implies that the word containing the sign
-+#   bit is found in the memory location with the lowest address. This
-+#   implementation was inspired by the AC_C_BIGENDIAN macro in autoconf.
-+#
-+#   The endianness is detected by first compiling C code that contains a
-+#   special double float value, then grepping the resulting object file for
-+#   certain strings of ASCII values. The double is specially crafted to have
-+#   a binary representation that corresponds with a simple string. In this
-+#   implementation, the string "noonsees" was selected because the
-+#   individual word values ("noon" and "sees") are palindromes, thus making
-+#   this test byte-order agnostic. If grep finds the string "noonsees" in
-+#   the object file, the target platform stores float words in big-endian
-+#   order. If grep finds "seesnoon", float words are in little-endian order.
-+#   If neither value is found, the user is instructed to specify the
-+#   ordering.

-Subject: [PATCH] setup.py: pass missing libraries to Extension for multiprocessing module
-
-In the following commit:
-...
-commit e711cafab13efc9c1fe6c5cd75826401445eb585
-Author: Benjamin Peterson <benjamin@...>
-Date:   Wed Jun 11 16:44:04 2008 +0000
-
-    Merged revisions 64104,64117 via svnmerge from
-    svn+ssh://pythondev@.../python/trunk
-...
-(see diff in setup.py)
-It assigned libraries for multiprocessing module according
-the host_platform, but not pass it to Extension.
-
-In glibc, the following commit caused two definition of
-sem_getvalue are different.
-https://sourceware.org/git/?p=glibc.git;a=commit;h=042e1521c794a945edc43b5bfa7e69ad70420524
-(see diff in nptl/sem_getvalue.c for detail)
-`__new_sem_getvalue' is the latest sem_getvalue@@GLIBC_2.1
-and `__old_sem_getvalue' is to compat the old version
-sem_getvalue@....
-
-To build python for embedded Linux systems:
-http://www.yoctoproject.org/docs/2.3.1/yocto-project-qs/yocto-project-qs.html
-If not explicitly link to library pthread (-lpthread), it will
-load glibc's sem_getvalue randomly at runtime.
-
-Such as build python on linux x86_64 host and run the python
-on linux x86_32 target. If not link library pthread, it caused
-multiprocessing bounded semaphore could not work correctly.
-...
->>> import multiprocessing
->>> pool_sema = multiprocessing.BoundedSemaphore(value=1)
->>> pool_sema.acquire()
-True
->>> pool_sema.release()
-Traceback (most recent call last):
-  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
-ValueError: semaphore or lock released too many times
-...
-
-And the semaphore issue also caused multiprocessing.Queue().put() hung.

-# DO NOT (entirely) modify this file manually, please read.
-#
-# IMPORTANT NOTE:
-# Please keep in mind that the create_manifest task relies on the fact the the
-# target and native Python packages are the same, and it also needs to be executed
-# with a fully working native package (with all the PACKAGECONFIGs enabled and all
-# and all the modules should be working, check log.do_compile), otherwise the script
-# will fail to find dependencies correctly, this note is valid either if you are
-# upgrading to a new Python version or adding a new package.
-#
-#
-# If you are adding a new package please follow the next steps:
-#     How to add a new package:
-#     - If a user wants to add a new package all that has to be done is:
-#     Modify the python2-manifest.json file, and add the required file(s) to the FILES list,
-#     fill up the SUMMARY section as well, the script should handle all the rest.
-#
-#     Real example:
-#     We want to add a web browser package, including the file webbrowser.py
-#     which at the moment is on python-misc.
-#     "webbrowser": {
-#         "files": ["${libdir}/python2.7/lib-dynload/webbrowser.py"],
-#         "rdepends": [],
-#         "summary": "Python Web Browser support"}
-#
-#     * Note that the rdepends field was left empty
-#
-#     We run $ bitbake python -c create_manifest and the resulting manifest
-#     should be completed after a few seconds, showing something like:
-#     "webbrowser": {
-#         "files": ["${libdir}/python2.7/webbrowser.py"],
-#         "rdepends": ["core","fcntl","io","pickle","shell","subprocess"],
-#         "summary": "Python Web Browser support"}
-#
-#
-# If you are upgrading Python to a new version please follow the next steps:
-#     After each Python upgrade, the create_manifest task should be executed, because we
-#     don't control what changes on upstream Python, so, some module dependency
-#     might have changed without us realizing it, a certain module can either have
-#     more or less dependencies, or could be depending on a new file that was just
-#     created on the new release and for obvious reasons we wouldn't have it on our
-#     old manifest, all of these issues would cause runtime errors on our system.
-#
-#     - Upgrade both the native and target Python packages to a new version
-#     - Run the create_manifest task for the target Python package as its shown below:
-#
-#     $ bitbake python -c create_manifest
-#
-#     This will automatically replace your manifest file located under the Python directory
-#     with an new one, which contains the new dependencies (if any).
-#
-#     Several things could have gone wrong here, I will try to explain a few:
-#
-#     a) A new file was introduced on this release, e.g. sha3*.so:
-#        The task will check what its needed to import every module, more than one module would
-#        would probably depend on sha3*.so, although only one module should contain it.
-#
-#        After running the task, the new manifest will have the sha3*.so file on more than one
-#        module, you need to manually decide which one of them should get it and delete it from
-#        the others, for example sha3*.so should likely be on ${PN}-crypt.
-#        Once you have deleted from the others you need to run the create_manifest task again,
-#        this will populate the other module's rdepends fields, with ${PN}-crypt and you should be
-#        good to go.
-#
-#     b) The native package wasn't built correctly and its missing a certain module:
-#        As mentioned before, you need to make sure the native package was built with all the modules
-#        because it is used as base to build the manifest file, you need to manually check log.do_compile
-#        since it won't error out the compile function if its only missing a couple of modules.
-#
-#        e.g. missing the _uuid module, log.do_compile would show the following:
-#        Python build finished successfully!
-#        The necessary bits to build these optional modules were not found:
-#        _uuid
-#
-#        What will happen here is that the new manifest would not be aware that the _uuid module exists, so
-#        not only we won't know of any dependencies to it, but also, the _uuid* files will be packaged on
-#        the misc package (which is where any file that doesn't belong anywhere else ends up).
-#
-#        This will eventually cause runtime errors on our system if we don't include the misc package on
-#        on our image, because the _uuid files will be missing.
-#        If we build the _uuid module correctly and run the create_manifest task the _uuid files will be
-#        detected correctly along with its dependencies, and we will get a working manifest.
-#
-#        This is the reason why it is important to make sure we have a fully working native build,
-#        so we can avoid these errors.
-#
-#
-#
-# DO NOT MODIFY THE NEXT LINE!, IT IS USED AS A MARKER FOR THE ACTUAL JSON MANIFEST
