Package Pyrex

This package will not be ported to Python 3. We can do without it – see if there is an alternative listed in the notes.

If you think it would be good to port it anyway, get in touch with the upstream!

See Pyrex in the Fedora Pagure, or go directly to the corresponding spec file.

Fedora X

The last Pyrex release was in 2010. Cython, originally a Pyrex fork, is now a mature and widely used tool. It does introduce some incompatible extensions, however.

Suggested replacement: Cython

  • Pyrex-0.9.9-14.fc27
    • × /usr/bin/python
    • × python(abi) = 2.7
    • × python-devel
    • × python-devel = 2.7.14-4.fc28
