Awesome, thank you for that. Your approach to fixing it is pretty nifty too. I see the upstream maintainers are already on it with a more general fix. It looks like the behaviour of Python GIO is what has changed, because it used to work as it is.

Your updated package installed perfectly. Thanks again.

@lwilkinson: Thanks, I fixed the PKGBUILD in 398ccf2e8888.
Also, I reported the bug upstream:

PKGBUILD check() stage is failing for me, preventing installation unless the check is skipped.

The test "is_valid_track" in exaile-4.1.1/xl/trax/ is failing because it uses:


which returns 'None'.

If i change it to:


the tests work fine. I have not looked into why this is happening, as I am a novice in python, and don't know the reasons why 'new_for_uri' was chosen, however, I can report that the change above works for me.

I installed other unrelated AUR updates by excluding exaile when asked what packages to exclude, and after that, I have been able to install the exaile package as is by using the command:

yay -Syu --mflags --nocheck

@twa022: Done in 8a1980395b8a, thank you.

cddb-py should no longer be an optdepend (python2 only). The disc I'd plugin is broken pending the merge of a new libdiscid based version. (

spydaap can be readded as an optdepend for the daap server and client (spydaap-git built against python3).

@SpotlightKid: Unbekannt -> this is because of your locale. Bug reported upstream, and fixed in 8b336a506a13.

I get test failures in the check function with the latest 4.1.0beta1-1 version:

@oldherl: Fixed, thanks.

Change the lines in check() to:

check() {
        cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$_pkgver"
        make PYTEST=py.test test

would fix it.

Error in check()

On Arch, py.test-3 command should be replaced to py.test?
