Neat addition. Thank you for the patch, patlefort

Ah, crap. The server were I built the test package wasn't as clean as I thought.

since last commit where python-setuptools was removed, package does not build:

P.S: I already flushed the cache so that is not the cause of this problem

TrialnError commented on 2021-12-20 17:16 (UTC)

It is suspicious that the setup wants to access a file in the root directory. I did a rebuild with the the current PKGBUILD and it works like a charm with makepkg.
Also of note is, that yay cached those files. Maybe this cache causes the failure. But only a speculation. Please try it with makepkg and check for modifications in the PKGBUILD.

Any ideas on how to solve the error below?

I'm not a fan of bumping in those cases. Without a bump, the program fails for users, but they know afterwards they need to rebuild it. If pkgrel is bumped there still could be the issue, that someone still runs python3.8 and after an upgrade still has a broken package.
Either way has its quirks.

silverbluep commented on 2020-12-19 19:06 (UTC)

Can you bump the package number so it prompts helpers to rebuild this package? It needs to be rebuilt for python 3.9 to work again.

TrialnError commented on 2019-10-21 20:36 (UTC)

Thanks for the research bmwinger. If it is solved by switching the location of the source, then I will do this change.

bmwinger commented on 2019-10-19 19:52 (UTC)

The contents of /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/patool-1.12-py3.6.egg-info/ seem to be lacking read permissions, 640 rather than 644. This causes all python imports to fail

It looks like the issue here is that the archive on pypi already contains a patool.egg-info directory with 640 permissions. Removing this before building the package, or using the archive from github (which doesn't come with patool.egg-info already built) will create the patool.egg-info directory with the correct permissions.
