@archmylinux: well, yes, of course.

In the develop branch , the lisp/ file has changed and execing it doesn't work, unfortunately.

That would be relatively easy to fix, but in the develop branch, the project also changed from using to a more modern approach using pyproject.toml. Most of the PKGBUILD will have to be rewritten to adapt to that.

I will do that, if and when the master branch follows suit. Until then, you - or somebody else - would have to make a special PKGBUILD for building from the develop branch.

Might I add that I'm pulling from the develop branch. (Forgot to mention it)

@archmylinux: sorry, I can't reproduce this here. Your error message is very puzzling, because the pkgver function only reads and execs lisp/__init__,py, but that file doesn't even have 35 lines.

I would try to make sure that you have deleted the src, pkg and linux-show-player directories before re-building the package.

Not quite sure why I get :

==> Starting pkgver()...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "<string>", line 35, in <module>
NameError: name '__file__' is not defined. Did you mean: '__name__'?

@HeyCitizen: just add #branch=develop to the git URL. And be sure to set the provides and conflicts variables accordingly.

Could I make a linux-show-player AUR package that automatically downloads from the 'develop' branch? If so, would I name it linux-show-player-develop-git ?

@archmylinux: the URL syntax you are using does not work. Just let makepkg create its own checkout of the sources. It's quick and and only takes up a few megabytes.

When changing :


to a local repository e.g.:


I get :

==> Starting pkgver()... Traceback (most recent call last): File "<string>", line 1, in <module> File "<string>", line 35, in <module> NameError: name 'file' is not defined ==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to be empty. ==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version: The build failed.

Wow, that was quick ! :-)
