fetch2: runfetchcmd(): unset _PYTHON_SYSCONFIGDATA_NAMEstable/1.42-next
Since warrior, python3native.bbclass sets _PYTHON_SYSCONFIGDATA_NAME; unfortunately, this also affects Python scripts run as fetch commands like git-make-shallow, breaking it with a message like Failed to import the site module Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python3.6/", line 570, in <module> main() File "/usr/lib/python3.6/", line 556, in main known_paths = addusersitepackages(known_paths) File "/usr/lib/python3.6/", line 288, in addusersitepackages user_site = getusersitepackages() File "/usr/lib/python3.6/", line 264, in getusersitepackages user_base = getuserbase() # this will also set USER_BASE File "/usr/lib/python3.6/", line 254, in getuserbase USER_BASE = get_config_var('userbase') File "/usr/lib/python3.6/", line 607, in get_config_var return get_config_vars().get(name) File "/usr/lib/python3.6/", line 550, in get_config_vars _init_posix(_CONFIG_VARS) File "/usr/lib/python3.6/", line 421, in _init_posix _temp = __import__(name, globals(), locals(), ['build_time_vars'], 0) ModuleNotFoundError: No module named '_sysconfigdata' on an Ubuntu 18.04 system (and likely others) when building with BB_GIT_SHALLOW and BB_GENERATE_SHALLOW_TARBALLS. Unset _PYTHON_SYSCONFIGDATA_NAME in runfetchcmd() to work around this. Signed-off-by: Matthias Schiffer <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <> Signed-off-by: Armin Kuster <>
