[Bug 1275353] Re: Make HPLIP working with Python 3


Function `PyString_FromStringAndSize' implicitly converted to pointer at pcard/pcardext/pcardext.c:208
Function `Py_InitModule4' implicitly converted to pointer at pcard/pcardext/pcardext.c:238

Our automated build log filter detected the problem(s) above that will
likely cause your package to segfault on architectures where the size of
a pointer is greater than the size of an integer, such as ia64 and amd64.

This is often due to a missing function prototype definition.

Since use of implicitly converted pointers is always fatal to the application
on ia64, they are errors.  Please correct them for your next upload.

Bug description:
  In Ubuntu Linux we want to switch over completely to Python 3 and are
  on the way to eliminate everything which needs Python 2.

  Therefore I want to know whether HPLIP is already tested with Python 3
  at HP and whether there was already effort on adapting HPLIP to Python

  As Python 3 will also get standard in the other distros I would
  appreciate very much if HPLIP could be switched over to using Python
