Also note that I force reverted from pillow to pil, so that isn't an issue for me (though that does need fixed eventually)

Having an issue with a crash when song loads. It's numpy on 231 (around there). If you fix it so the game doesn't crash, the audio track doesn't play for guitar. If you don't fix it, it crashes on song load. I had to change to this just to keep it from crashing
import numpy
def zeros(size):
return numpy.zeros(size, dtype='h')

This is a duplicate package ( and a dependency is missing (python2-numpy).

Never mind, I think I fixed it :D Pyxml apperantly isn't required anymore, and it seems to work without it. As for python2-imaging, the python2-pillow package is a fork of it, and supposedly provides it. However, when I replace the imaging package with pillow, fofix fails to load. I consider this a bug with python2-pillow, because it does not properly provide the libraries fofix needs, and there's nothing I can do about that.

I'm not sure if the pyxml package exists anymore. Apperantly, it was old, unmaintained code, and I didn't find any articles about Arch, but I think Fedora dropped it: . I assume Arch must have done the same. You can try building it without the package, but that will probably fail. Unless they updated the Fofix code to run with a different library, it probably won't build unless someone makes a pyxml package (which I don't have time to mess with).

The problem is, that the Fofix code hasn't been updated in years, and it uses some obscure libraries, so I don't know how easy it will be to get working again.

Cannot install this package as "pyxml" is not available anymore :/
Furthermore python2-imaging conflicts with python2-pillow (which is, f.e., needed by calibre). A pity, because I really love Frets on Fire....

Fails to run:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./", line 108, in <module>
from GameEngine import GameEngine
File "/opt/fofix/src/", line 38, in <module>
from Video import Video
File "/opt/fofix/src/", line 28, in <module>
import Image
ImportError: No module named Image

Fixed it with:

yaourt -Rdd python2-pillow
yaourt -S python2-pil

Whet exactly is wrong with this package right now? It's flagged, but all the dependencies seem to be referring to their proper python2 names, and it seems to work fine on my system as is. I don't have python2-rsvg installed, does it need it?

nico666 commented on 2012-10-29 19:34

needs to solve python-rsvg to python2-rsvg dependency issue:

doorknob60 commented on 2011-04-14 16:18

Oh, I've seen that bug plenty of times, and never really found any solutions. I'm pretty sure it's on their bugtracker, go look at that and see if it has any useful information.
