@dimich: python-sgmllib3k added.

Requires python-sgmllib3k to work.

Needs beautifulsoup3.

You can get it with:

pacaur -S python2-beautifulsoup3


pip2 install beautifulsoup

**Please** depend on python2-pychm instead of python-pychm. I'm doing "pacman -Syu --ignore python-pychm" the last two weeks or so.

Hi. Please depend on python2-pychm instead of python-pychm. It has been renamed in [community].

I have the problem when extracting chm file,
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/archmage", line 169, in <module>
File "/usr/bin/archmage", line 152, in main
CHMFile(options.chmfile) or CHMDir(options.chmfile)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/archmod/", line 43, in __init__
topicstree = self.get_entry(self.topics)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/archmod/", line 27, in __getattribute__
self.cache[name] = self._getitem(name)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/archmod/", line 304, in _getitem
return super(CHMFile, self)._getitem(name)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/archmod/", line 157, in _getitem
raise AttributeError(name)
AttributeError: topics
May I know how to solve?

For that, it is quite simple.
* Add python2 in deps
* use python2 instead python to install the software.

PKGBUILD should be updated for the python rebuild
