Fixing python packages on pentium4

Hi all,

I'd like to start contributing and it looks like python is a pretty big issue. Here is my summary of the problem based on some reading:

In the core repository, python is at v3.11 but many packages are built against v3.10 so they don't work if installed through the official repos. This is how many are on my machine alone

  [jackus@jackusinspirion ~]$ pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.10/
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by avahi 0.8+22+gfd482a7-3.2
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by boost-libs 1.81.0-3.1
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by clang 15.0.7-8.0
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by libblockdev 2.28-1.0
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by libftdi 1.5-4.0
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by libimobiledevice 1.3.0-6.0
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by libplist 2.2.0-6.1
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by lldb 15.0.7-2.1
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by ninja 1.11.1-2.0
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by python-sphinx-inline-tabs 2022.01.02.beta11-1.0
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by python-virtualenv 20.17.1-1.1
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by reflector 2021.11-5.0
/usr/lib/python3.10/ is owned by subversion 1.14.2-6.1

Here is a relevant forum post: link

From that forum post it seems like rebuilding fails due to some kind of issue in the mysql database containing source urls?

My questions about this issue:
    1. Is there any way I can play around with the builder tools on my machine? I would be keen to check out any server actually running the build tools, but I might break something.

    2. Is there a way for me to make calls to the mysql database / view it online?

    3. Is there a way to view the logs from the build master / build slave so I can follow the stack trace?

    4. Is my statement of the python problem still accurate? Do we know anything else about the issue with the build system?

Re: Fixing python packages on pentium4

Update: found the buildmaster logs.

Update again: looks like the logs under buildmaster/build-logs do not refer to the command 'schedule-for-rebuild' executed on 2023-08-12.
