@je-vv: thanks, merged. I kept the min version specs for now, though, they don't hurt.

Please, change dependency from python-path, to, which is the same but available from official repos. Please also remove dependency upon python-pathlib, that's not required at all on python 3. Some tweaks to requirements.txt might be required

After another round of issues due to updates and broken functionality, I uninstalled flexget and all of its depends using pacman. I kept setuptools installed, and installed python2-virutalenv and python2-pip. I followed the instructions on the flexget page for setting up a virtualenv for ONLY flexget using python2 (python3 seems to have issues at this time). This seems to be working well and running OK. This process creates a build of flexget and its depends (independent of Arch) in a local folder somewhere, so it can be executed but will never interfere with Arch packages. I don't ever plan on updating the virtualenv or the packages/depends installed inside of that folder. Hopefully I can now use flexget in peace, without it breaking in an attempt to give me feature updates I don't need and won't use.

@cgirard - thank you, that fixed it!

file path if anyone else needs it:


cgirard commented on 2018-04-23 13:40

@highway: it is because zxcvbn-python is now zxcvbn. The python require file should be updated.

highway commented on 2018-04-21 23:54

I seem to have an issue with the latest update of python2-zxcvbn breaking functionality. The error I receive is: "pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'zxcvbn-python' distribution was not found and is required by FlexGet"

Is anyone else experiencing this?

asermax commented on 2018-01-17 00:46

I meant the same as highway*

asermax commented on 2018-01-17 00:46

@cgirard I'm getting the same as cgirard, which is (as far as i can see) the same one you linked for python2 (the issue you linked happens on python3). I debugged the issue and tracked it down to sqlalchemy, an going through my updates logs I realized it got updated to 1.2 not long ago; when downgraded it, worked like a charm.

highway commented on 2018-01-16 23:46

@asermax, thanks for the tip, i will downgrade to the older version as a temp fix!

@cgirard, it looks like the sqlalchemy issue we are seeing is different than the one reported. if you need more from me, let me know!
