broken python2 support on openSUSE Tumbleweed

#1 Post by raptor » Wed Feb 05, 2020 11:59 pm

Hi,

python2 support is broken on openSUSE Tumbleweed (deprecated about a year ago) and freeorion 0.4.9 fails to compile unless I strictly use python3 and patch the CMake system - but then the game files/tests don't work because of syntax issues. Is it feasible to apply the current python3 commits to freeorion for 0.4.9 release, and if so, can I somehow get them in a single patch file?

Thanks!

No, it's not feasible. Better wait for the next release.

The plan for the next release is to focus on the Python3 migration and get that release out asap, to address this very issue.
