    Details

    • Type: Suggestion
    • Status: Reported
    • Priority: P3: Somewhat important
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: 5.12.3
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: PySide, Shiboken
    • Labels:
      None
    • Environment:

       I found this in particular on my aarch64 machine running Arch Linux ARM, however, this applies to any non-x86 or x86_64 architecture or platform that are not provided by the distributed wheels.

    • Platform/s:
      All

      Description

      Pyside2 and Shiboken are only distributed as wheels for x86 and x86_64 architectures.

      This makes it so that anyone not on theses architectures (e.g. aarch64, ARMv7) cannot install via pypi.

       

      Even if binary distributions for these architectures is too much of a development overhead, source distributions are the standard for at least being able to attempt installation.
      Sure, there are additional build dependencies required, but most devs attempting a source install should recognize that
