A wrapper for patchelf

Project description

patchelf-wrapper is a simple Python module that assists in the installation of the *patchelf* utility. It’s intended for use with PyPI-hosted Python projects that depend on patchelf. If you’re an end-user of patchelf, you should look elsewhere! (Perhaps your OS’s package manager?)

Currently, patchelf-wrapper installs patchelf 0.9.


Ordinarily, you’ll just want to set 'patchelf-wrapper' as one of your requirements (e.g. in If installing directly, you can just use python install or python build as usual; this respects all the usual options, including automatically installing patchelf into the bin dir of a virtualenv if one is active.

In addition, patchelf-wrapper contains the following setup commands beyond the defaults:

  • check_patchelf: Checks if patchelf is already installed on the system
  • fetch_patchelf: Fetches the patchelf tarball from the web
  • build_patchelf: Extract patchelf’s source and build it
  • install_patchelf: Install patchelf to the chosen location
