Re: Python / Debian package dependencies

Hi Stephane,

thanks for your reply! :-)

I do not get any notification or warning or whatever from dpkg, all
output I get when running
# sudo dpkg -i python-<package name>_0.0.1-4927-1_all.deb
Selecting previously deselected package python-<package name>.
(Reading database ... 15026 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking python-<package name(from python-<package
name>_0.0.1-4927-1_all.deb) ...
Setting up python-<package name(0.0.1-4927-1) ...

And my <package namepackage itself does get installed, but the
'psycopg2' and 'setuptools' packages it depends on do not get

How would I install a package with apt-get if I don't have it in the
repository, but only have a local .deb file ?

Hi Steven,
This is a normal behaviour for dpkg. If there is a failing dependancy, dpkg
will not install dependancies, it will notify only and will not install the
package. Dependancies installations are managed by the front-end to dpkg
(aptitude or apt). This is not a python issue that you are facing to.

Hi all,

I am trying to build a debian package for my python modules using
stdeb and dpkg-buildpackage. The package building itself works, I also
managed to have an entry point created and I can use my python modules
on the Ubuntu virtual machine I use to test the package.

The problem is that my modules require the psycopg2 python package and
the entry point seems to require setuptools.
I can't figure out how to declare a dependency that actually results
in the dependency Debian packages being installed.
I tried adding these lines to setup.py:

requires = ['psycopg2', 'setuptools'],
requires = ['psycopg2 (>=0.1)', 'setuptools (>=0.1)'],
install_requir es = ['psycopg2', 'setuptools'],
install_requir es = ['psycopg2>=0.1' , 'setuptools>=0. 1'],

and then run stdeb_run_setup and dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -us
in the deb_dist/<package namefolder created, but when I copy the
.deb file over to the virtual machine and do dpkg -i <.deb file>, none
of them would actually install psycopg2 and setuptools.

What am I doing wrong ? Am I actually somewhat on the right track or
am I doing complete nonsense ?

Thanks for your help!

Hi, I am pretty new to python and will use it mainly in combination with scientific packages. I am running ubuntu breezy right now and see that some packages are out of date.
