Thanks for the heads up. I just removed the directive, since it defaults to aur-auto-vote.service anyway.

I had to move the 'Unit' key from the [Unit] section of aur-auto-vote.service to the [Timer] section, otherwise I got this warning:

Feb 09 19:44:03 buffalo systemd[1]: /etc/systemd/system/aur-auto-vote.timer:3: Unknown key name 'Unit' in section 'Unit', ignoring.

This is with systemd 244 (244.2-2-arch) installed.

@Strykar: Please read your error log carefully. There is nothing wrong with BeautifulSoup. I just tested my installation and it works without a problem.

Your error logs points to not beeing able to execute "pacman -Qmq". As to why this is I cannot say. Maybe you broke your pacman installation? Bad hardware?

Strykar commented on 2020-01-27 06:52

Is this still broken due to BeautifulSoup?

Not as long as everybody remembers to reinstall this package. Your votes are account bound, and they will most likely not reinstall a package that crashed their OS, and this vote will then be removed.

Note that you should not be forced to reinstall your OS because of a crashed package. Instead fix it from a live boot USB key.

Quick question: does this mean the packages that can crash an OS and require reinstallation of the OS will get more votes than the same packages that are stable?

Hey, author here. The developer of SoupSieve (BeautifulSoup's new CSS selector implementation) created an issue on the GitHub repository. I should hopefully have fixed the problem, please let me know if everything works!

Please report upstream issues upstream.
