Pip - pynetlinux with python 3.5 not latest code


I’m migrating a project to python 3 (3.5) and I saw that installing pynetlinux with pip3 is not actually installing the latest code on GitHub [1] hence is failing, If i sue directly the code on GitHub everything works correctly. Seems like latest code is not being pointed to a official release, anyone knows what is the process to request a new release of this package or to have the latest code with pip3 ?

You’d need to raise an issue on the project’s tracker - although I see you have alrteady. That project’s last commit was in 2016, so it’s possible that it’s dead.

Meanwhile, as a workaround, you can install with pip directly from github with a command like:

pip install git+https://github.com/rlisagor/pynetlinux.git#egg=pynetlinux

Or if you want to install a specific commit to guarantee reproducibility, you can use.

pip install git+https://github.com/rlisagor/pynetlinux.git@e3f16978855c6649685f0c43d4c3fcf768427ae5#egg=pynetlinux

You can also add the line below to a requirements.txt file:


The text between @ and #egg can be any tag or branch, besides commit hashes.

thanks a lot for your help, will apply the workaround waiting to see if the code get released.
