No, base-devel is implicitly assumed to be installed when building packages. Please take a look at the AUR wiki page to learn more about building and installing/updating packages from the AUR.

patch command was not found when trying to update (on manjaro). maybe i screwed up in between updates, but installing base-devel helped. probably a missing dependency?

Looks like that's right, it should be 'option_order' not 'option_ordeb'.

I guessed that it was a newer version of setuptools that broke the building of Mnemosyne, and I was about to write the solution here after I installed the old version and it worked. Looks like the effect was re-installing it, fixing the typo. Seeing your comment I then installed the latest version and it also worked.

Still, that "typo" is ludicrous, I haven't touched setuptools before as I was never aware of its existence on my system. I think I should check the health of my SSD.

This looks like you edited your local setuptools installation and introduced a typo in the process. Please reinstall python-setuptools and try rebuilding this package.

Is no one else using Mnemosyne? I think it broke when the main python became 3.11


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/setuptools/_distutils/", line 276, in getopt
    self.option_ordeb.append((opt, val))
AttributeError: 'FancyGetopt' object has no attribute 'option_ordeb'. Did you mean: 'option_order'?

I'm afraid I no longer have the time to maintain this. Sorry!

Hopefully someone else will pick it up.

Please fix the dependencies. Add python-pyqt6-webengine. Remove python-pyqt6, qt6-webengine, python-pyqtwebengine.

I also ran into the the checksum issue. Using yay, the checksum verification can be skipped with:

yay -S mnemosyne --mflags '--skipchecksums'

This patch file now has a sha256sum of 086691d23ab73354af338ba69c42d7facf36c2a6663271c95e242b35679a8ead -

The package build refers to a different hash: c5a57b1486dda325d53c3692fdd63778d8224efa0774ac750434e04f2162f3a2

Not sure if the commit was ever c5a57..... maybe the author force-pushed a new commit?

Anyways, pacman is failing to install with the PKGBUILD as it is currently..

@Lukas1818: I've followed your suggestion and updated the PKGBUILD accordingly. Let me know if you have any issues :-)
