Trying to get Chirp installed on a CentOS 8 desktop.
Apparently python is known more as "python3" in CentOS 8 and those packages aren't recognized by the Chirp package.
Can this be remedied? or is there a known workaround?


Listing installed packages:
python36.x86_64 3.6.8-2.module_el8.1.0+245+c39af44f @AppStream
python3-pyserial.noarch 3.1.1-8.el8 @AppStream
python3-lxml.x86_64 4.2.3-1.el8 @AppStream

And yet, these errors:
Problem: cannot install the best candidate for the job
- nothing provides pyserial needed by chirp-0.4.0-1.fc20.noarch
- nothing provides /usr/bin/python needed by chirp-0.4.0-1.fc20.noarch
- nothing provides libxml2-python needed by chirp-0.4.0-1.fc20.noarch

  1. which python
  1. python -V
    Python 3.6.8

yum list chirp

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Target version set to chirp-daily
  • Platform changed from Linux to All

Chirp reqires Python 2 (2.7).
A Python 3 project is in the works, but already has its own ticket.
