Linux Distribution Detection

Distribution Detection

I am working on adding support for building and distributing (via PyPI) Python Wheels with C Extensions to the Python wheel and pip packages. The discussion on Distutils-SIG continues, but I believe it is fairly certain that some effort to correctly identify Linux distributions will need to be made. I've begun efforts to add this support to wheel.

How you can help

If you have a Linux distribution or version of a listed distribution not in this gist, or one of the ones I have not directly verified, I could use the following:

  • The contents of /etc/os-release, if it exists
  • Whether or not the lsb_release program is installed, and whether it's part of a "default" install
  • The output of lsb_release -a if installed
  • The contents of /etc/lsb-release, if it exists
  • The contents of any other /etc/*-release files
  • Any other reliable way to determine the flavor and version of your Linux distribution, especially if none of the above exist

And finally, you can test the platform detection on your platform by downloading and installing (e.g. in a virtualenv) lionshead and running:

% python -c 'import lionshead; print lionshead.get_specific_platform()'

e.g.:

% pip install -e 'hg+https://bitbucket.org/natefoo/wheel#egg=wheel'
% python -c 'import wheel.pep425tags; print wheel.pep425tags.get_platforms()'
['linux_x86_64_ubuntu_14_04', 'linux_x86_64', 'any']

If lsb_release is optional on your system and especially if /etc/os-release does not exist, it'd be even more helpful to run the above prior to installing lsb_release, and again afterward.

Arch

I have not verified this information on an Arch install, I gathered the information from the web.

lsb-release -a

lsb_release is not installed as part of the base system, but is available in the lsb-release package.

Just guessing based on looking at the package source:

Distributor ID:	Arch
Description:	Arch Linux
Release:	rolling
Codename:	????

/etc/lsb-release

/etc/lsb-release is installed with the lsb-release package. I believe these would be its contents:

LSB_VERSION=1.4-14

DISTRIB_RELEASE=rolling
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Arch Linux"

Distro-specific files

/etc/arch-version:

It is an empty file, but its existence indicates that the distro is Arch.

Best Regards,
Tadej
