I updated the package to 2.10.48 and applied your fix for the dependency on guessit.
It seems to work, hoping that using this version of guessit will not create too many bugs... but I guess it will still be better than not being able to install it at all :)

Also, if porting to python (python3), then the patch for requirements.txt should be modified to remove dep on pahtlib:

Well, the owner could apply:

The guys from flexget have accepted and rejected it... People from gentoo indicates compiles and works. There's also a indication of 3 tests failing...

I suggest applying the changes so the flexget keeps working on Arch, but also keep track of:

I seen no reason either not to move to python, rather than keep using python2...

Install fails with:

error: target not found: python2-guessit<=2.0.4

@redbaron i just re-read the comment, maybe you can report that to them on their site? open a new issue and report that.

highway commented on 2016-09-01 02:24

@redbaron there is an issue open with guessit in their github. you can comment to show support/urgency if you like. the issue is with dateutil functionality breaking guessit tests that might get removed.

Hello, reinstalled flexget from zero (deleted all dependencies and orphaned python packages), python2-guessit asked for python2-dateutil<2.5.2 which is not available in repository so I installed 2.5.1 from archive and then flexget fully installed.
Bu when running "flexget check" it gives error:

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'guessit<=2.0.4' distribution was not found and is required by FlexGet

but in dependencies from PKGBUILD python2-guessit>=2.0.3 (python2-guessit-git) is required.

BTW, guppy (opt. dep.) no longer compiles, on python3:

Perhaps a patch can be useful, :-) See, it was reported on 2012-01, updated on 2014-05, and since then the bug hadn't been attended. Therefore a patch would be great... Meanwhile I'd guess it can be removed from the opt. deps. if using python3...

Tha of course if in the mood to migrate to python3, :-)

Thanks for the comments.
For now I just updated it to the latest version still using python2, I will look into the migration to python3 and the creation of all dependency packages.

Just in case, a brief of what I did to upgrade to 2.2.20 and at the same time migrate to python3 (none of the new pkgs are in AUR):

flexget -> 2.2.20
-> CHANGE to python3
-> REMOVE all #AUR# on deps
-> REMOVE "prepare"
-> NEW DEPENDENCY python-pathlib
-> MOVED from OPT to DEP (really opt?)
