The --version thing is now fixed.

Running fdroid --version with this package produces a crash:

Traceback (most recent call last):

@maintainer Can you update the package so fdroid init work again? Solutions are already in comments.

Solved this issue locally by replacing the following line in PKGBUILD:

install -D "examples/" "$pkgdir/usr/share/$pkgname/"


install -D "examples/" "$pkgdir/usr/share/doc/$pkgname/examples/"
install -D "examples/fdroid-icon.png" "$pkgdir/usr/share/doc/$pkgname/examples/fdroid-icon.png"

fdroid init seems to expect and fdroid-icon.png at /usr/share/doc/fdroidserver/examples/, but instead the package only installs /usr/share/fdroidserver/

At least on my machine the pkg installs stuff in /usr/lib/python3.6.

$ fdroid
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/fdroid", line 23, in <module>
import fdroidserver.common
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'fdroidserver'

That's because /usr/bin/fdroid has its shebang set to use python3 but the aur installation installs stuff in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fdroidserver.

mv /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fdroidserver /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/

Version 0.5.0 will require python2-yaml.

dlandau commented on 2015-08-20 17:56

Updated, thanks!

mvdan commented on 2015-08-05 06:04

Just tagged 0.4.0. Added python2-requests as a new dependency.
