@Xyne Ok, I had outdated python3-xcpf package. Thank you.

Xyne commented on 2017-07-22 22:42

Recent changes in pbget depend on matching changes in python3-aur and other dependencies. In general, all of my packages are developed together and should be updated together. You can use the repo on my site to do this automatically with pacman.

I see errors after latest update:

Thanks but it doesn't directly depend on python3-memoizedb. It depends on python3-xcpf, which depends on python3-memoizedb. The dependency tree is complete. If there is something missing on your system then either you or your AUR helper missed a dependency.

Great. Successfully built. thx

Xyne commented on 2017-05-16 12:57

It should be fixed now.

Managed to setup the right signatures but then after I got the following error:

The signatures are correct. You need to import the key into your user's keyring to verify the signature with makepkg.

For details, see e.g.

python3-memoizedb is a dependency of python3-xcpf, which is a dependency of this package. Your local dependency tree is broken.

notuxius commented on 2017-05-01 09:15

@Xyne - "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'MemoizeDB'" error on first launch - looks like package 'python3-memoizedb' needs to be a dependency

Xyne commented on 2016-07-10 20:56

I have been gradually working on a new backend for a while. It is available for testing here[1]. It is not entirely backwards-compatible so please give it a try now and get ready to migrate your configuration files and scripts. Extension developers are most welcome :D.

Please keep related discussion in the forum thread.


Voice commented on 2015-10-02 23:09

Is it updated in your binary repo? Version I have is 2013.12-1 from there which breaks since 'python3' is now just 'python' .... Thanks for all your fantastic tools and the binary repo too.

Xyne commented on 2015-07-12 16:57

A quick search for "aur xyne gpg key" returns multiple hits with the solution (e.g.

Short answer: you need to import the keys that you wish to verify.

dos1 commented on 2015-07-12 14:20

Doesn't work - fails on GPG key verification.

Xyne commented on 2012-10-29 01:14

For what? The dependency?

I mean python3:

$ pacman -Si python
Repository : extra
Name : python
Version : 3.3.0-1
Provides : python3

I consider different major versions of Python to be different languages as they are incompatible. Changing the names of packages, deps, projects, etc. whenever a new version of Python is released is not something that I want to do. Explicit versioning should be future-proof.

vorbote commented on 2012-10-28 16:39

Do you mean python2 or simply python (which is version 3)?

magus commented on 2012-10-23 13:21

The .sig file isn't available at that URL. It doesn't seem to be used though; removing it from the PKGBUILD leaves the package buildable again.

Xyne commented on 2011-01-04 20:40

Nvm that last bit. I've updated pbget to retrieve PKGBUILDs from the new web interface.

Xyne commented on 2011-01-04 17:31

Yeah, it's a bug. Nice catch too... it's been there for ages and I've never noticed it.

Btw, the SVN interface on has changed recently and I don't know what they're doing with it yet, so you'll need to install rsync use the "--abs" option to get PKGBUILDs for the official repos, at least for now.

dlin commented on 2011-01-04 01:32

I got this message when I makepkg. Is it a bug?
