For me the fix was yay -S powerpill python3-xcgf python3-xcpf python3-memoizedb pm2ml

Xyne commented on 2021-11-12 04:08 (UTC)

@parsanoori You need to import my signing key into your user keyring. It's the same as the one in the Arch Linux keyring, but makepkg is run as a regular user while building and checks signatures against the user's keyring, not the system's.

@AchmadFathoni The packages aren't really re-downloaded. The latest version of Pacman double-checks all packages in the cache for updates but shouldn't actually download anything if the packages are valid.

AchmadFathoni commented on 2021-11-10 23:02 (UTC)

After sudo powerpill -Syu download all Arch package, the package is re-download again after :: Retrieving packages...

@Xyne can you track the pyalpm bug report here? I just created. Workaround is not a solution right?

souravdas142 commented on 2021-06-24 02:10 (UTC) (edited on 2021-06-24 02:55 (UTC) by souravdas142)

@Xyne with pm2ml 2021 - (Which is still not updated on aur, as of today) is fixed the segmentation fault. thanks.

Xyne commented on 2021-06-19 22:31 (UTC) (edited on 2021-06-19 23:23 (UTC) by Xyne)

@souravdas142 I'm looking into the segfault. Will follow-up as soon as I have a solution or know more.

edit The error is due to a bug in pyalpm (pyalpm.find_grp_pkgs segfaults). I have implemented a workaround until the bug in pyalpm is fixed. Please update pm2ml to the latest version (it should be up in about 10 minutes).

@PedroHLC I haven't looked at the new behaviour or pacman 6.0 but I haven't noticed anything different about my upgrades either. Regardless, unless there's an option in pacman to disable unwanted behavior, there isn't anything that powerpill can do about it when invoking pacman. Powerpill still does the same thing that it always has though, so the downloads should not be affected by pacman 6.0.

PedroHLC commented on 2021-06-01 17:08 (UTC)

Hi @Xyne, Pacman (now at v6) checks if the file in cache is up-to-date with the first mirror in the list. Which (for me) s-cks. I personally prefer Powerpill's way of doing it, in parallel, capable of handling 404 and moving to another mirror.

Do you think we can return that behavior without downgrades? Anyway, thanks for this great tool, been using it since ~2012.

souravdas142 commented on 2021-06-01 12:12 (UTC)


segmentation fault, after upgrading to pacman 6.0.0-2. when installing a group like sudo powerpill -S plasma before upgrading pacman, its working fine.

In case you are using Python version manager like asdf, you need to change the hash bang in the /usr/bin/powerpill to use the system python like so

       │ File: /usr/bin/powerpill
   1   │ #!/usr/bin/python3
   2   │ import sys
   3   │ import Powerpill
   4   │ sys.exit(Powerpill.run_main())

Other wise you might get the following error

/usr/bin/python3: No module named Powerpill

What is wrong?

Edit: If I run aria2c with --async-dns=false it runs OK. How can I set that up on powerpill?

Edit no.2: I set --async-dns=false in /etc/powerpill/powerpill.json under aria2c args, it works now.

Rumcajs commented on 2020-12-16 22:12 (UTC)

@Xyne : Yeah Thx man thats fixed it.

Xyne commented on 2020-12-16 03:10 (UTC)

@Rumcajs Have you installed and rebuilt all of the dependencies since the upgrade to Python 3.9? Please read the previous comments below.

Rumcajs commented on 2020-12-15 17:50 (UTC) (edited on 2020-12-15 17:53 (UTC) by Rumcajs)

i get error : Traceback (most recent call last): File /usr/bin/powerpill, line 3, in <module> import Powerpill File /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/, line 43, in <module> import pm2ml ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pm2ml'

Xyne commented on 2020-12-15 04:43 (UTC)

@Tanath All of the dependencies with Python modules must be rebuilt against the latest version of Python 3.

I also provide built packages in my repo that you can upgrade directly with pacman if you don't want to worry about rebuilding them yourself:

Tanath commented on 2020-12-07 20:48 (UTC) (edited on 2020-12-07 21:10 (UTC) by Tanath)

I was also getting

/usr/bin/python3: No module named Powerpill

Rebuilding didn't change anything at first, but I tried a clean build and then I got:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/", line 197, in _run_module_as_main
    return _run_code(code, main_globals, None,

    import pm2ml
  File "/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/", line 35, in <module>

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'XCGF'

The fix was to rebuild the following as well: python3-xcgf python3-xcpf python3-memoizedb

escape0707 commented on 2020-12-03 05:06 (UTC)

@homocomputeris Try rebuild powerpill and all its AUR packages against python 3.9. This works for me. Although these AUR packages have already been bumped to an increase version number, so I think just do a normal update should automatically fix this for you.

homocomputeris commented on 2020-12-02 17:56 (UTC)

An error appears in 2020-1:

@Xyne, thanks will try it, I'll let you know if still the same error.

Xyne commented on 2020-10-18 16:56 (UTC)

@Gargoyle101 You need to add my key to your keyring. makepkg uses the user's keyring, not pacman's keyring.

Fixed by a complete clean rebuild, including aur dependencies

After manjaro update today it works just fine, great tool

zerophase commented on 2019-07-07 13:30 (UTC)

@princenna @Spirit Try rebuilding aria2. Nettle was just updated for Arch, and aria2 requires that lib.

Xyne commented on 2019-07-06 13:14 (UTC)

Make sure that all of powerpill's dependencies are up-to-date (pyalpm, pm2ml, etc.). You can use my repo [1] to let pacman handle this automatically.


princenna commented on 2019-07-05 11:52 (UTC)

I have the exact same problem as @Spirit and I am using the latest version of pyalpm

Xyne commented on 2019-05-01 14:59 (UTC)

@Spirit Are you using the latest version of pyalpm?

I looked at ansatz's comment and on that link it says the patch that fixes this problem has been integrated, but it still doesn't work for me?

ansatz commented on 2019-01-19 12:26 (UTC)

The issue is caused by python3-xcpf. See here for a working patch:

@Xyne I had the same problem on Manjaro. The contents of the try block is commented out. Uncommenting worked.

Xyne commented on 2018-12-24 19:11 (UTC)

@DroidFreak32 I've just rebuilt the package locally via the AUR's PKGBUILD and I see no indentation error. Can you compare the installed file at /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/ to in the source archive? I wonder if something went wrong when the file was copied to your system.

If the error was in the source file, I and several other people would have noticed it I think.

DroidFreak32 commented on 2018-12-18 13:12 (UTC) (edited on 2018-12-18 13:12 (UTC) by DroidFreak32)

@farseerfc Done.

@Morganamilo Fixed.

@simona Make sure that all of your packages (including their dependencies) have been rebuilt for Python 3.7.

farseerfc commented on 2018-09-03 18:15 (UTC)

Can we make the "reflector" as an optdepends? Because powerpill does not need reflector for normal usage, and reflector is not suitable for other architectures like archlinuxarm.

Morganamilo commented on 2018-09-02 15:05 (UTC)

--print-format implies --print. powerpill does not handle this.

I created a powerpill's zsh completion script. Anyway, it is copypast of pacman zsh completion sript with replace pacman on powerpill. I added unique powerpill's commands --powerpill-config and --powerpill-clean. Completion of -S, -R -Q commands work fine. Take here

Xyne commented on 2018-06-03 17:13 (UTC)

@moham_96 See the discussion below about zsh. If someone contributes whatever is needed to add them then I will include it, but I don't use zsh myself and I don't have the time to figure it out myself right now.

moham_96 commented on 2018-06-02 09:30 (UTC)

Can you add support for zsh completions?

Xyne commented on 2018-03-18 15:12 (UTC)

@CarterCox You need to install the dependencies from the AUR, or enable my repo in Pacman:

gnucon commented on 2018-03-17 10:55 (UTC)

@CarterCox you can install the missing modules from aur yaourt -S python3-xcgf python3-xcpf python3-memoizedb

CarterCox commented on 2018-03-12 14:04 (UTC) (edited on 2018-03-12 14:07 (UTC) by CarterCox)

I tried to install but pacman couldn't install missing dependencies:

zerophase commented on 2018-02-15 05:09 (UTC)

@xyne pacmatic has a good example of zsh completions, I think something similar to the pacmatic completions should work for most of powerpill in fish.

dapolinario commented on 2018-02-14 23:53 (UTC) (edited on 2018-02-14 23:55 (UTC) by dapolinario)

@Xyne, actually the base is

The "progname" variable is not used when you really need to create a pacman-based database: set -l listinstalled "(pacman -Q | string replace '' \ t)", set -l listgroups "(pacman -Sg) \ t'Package Group '"

and in two other lines I did not understand what it is for, if the -e and -f parameters are related to pacman or to complete: complete -c pacman -e, complete -c pacman -f

Therefore, if you replace the progname content with powerpill and bb-wrapper, that's a start (since the script follows the same basic plus additional pacaur commands).

You can do a pull resquest on the github of the fish project, if they accept it, a headache for you.


Xyne commented on 2018-02-14 23:25 (UTC)

@dapolinario I'm open to the idea but I don't use fish so I am unfamiliar with the syntax and would not be able to test it.

Would it be enough to just replace all instances of "pacman" with "powerpill", "bauerbill" or "bb-wrapper" and add some lines for extra commands to generate a new file? Looking at [1], I see that it sets the "progname" variable at the top and then uses that throughout most of the file, but not everywhere, so the logic isn't immediately clear.

I am also unsure about how to handle the attributions and eventual license if I modify for include it in my projects. It may be better to ask the fish devs to include completions for powerpill etc. as they seem to accept all completion files. If it would help, I could try to write a simple script to generate the files from to facilitate maintenance.


dapolinario commented on 2018-02-02 21:10 (UTC)

Can you add fish completion to this package, using pacman's fish completion as a template?

Xyne commented on 2017-12-31 05:11 (UTC)

@bemeurer Thanks for reporting the error and posting the traceback. It should be fixed with today's pm2ml update.

bemeurer commented on 2017-12-27 14:07 (UTC) (edited on 2017-12-27 14:10 (UTC) by bemeurer)

I inconsistently run into the following error

It seems to happen whenever I run PACMAN=powerpill pacaur -Syu --devel --needed --noconfirm and there is and update. If when it errors I run the command again, it runs successfully.

Xyne commented on 2017-11-26 21:55 (UTC)

> I'm running my own version of python3 I don't know what that means. Regardless, run the setup script with your version to install the modules to a recognized path.

I'm running my own version of python3 and I'm seeing: /home/ravi/.local/share/virtualenvs/py3/bin/python3: No module named Powerpill How do I work around this? Could Powerpill be a PYPI package?

Xyne commented on 2017-08-21 13:13 (UTC)

All of the dependencies should be updated together. Please ask the maintainer of the package in the Antergos repo to update the package. You can also enable my repo in pacman.conf.

Dependencies should probably be updated to pm2ml >= 2017.3, otherwise powerpill dies when syncing with the following stack trace, when using older pm2ml (antergos carries 2016.8-1 in their repo, for example): Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python3.6/", line 193, in _run_module_as_main "__main__", mod_spec) File "/usr/lib/python3.6/", line 85, in _run_code exec(code, run_globals) File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/", line 990, in <module> sys.exit(run_main()) File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/", line 975, in run_main return main(args) File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/", line 955, in main powerpill.refresh_databases() File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/", line 783, in refresh_databases self.pm2ml.refresh_databases(**pm2ml_passthrough_args) AttributeError: 'Pm2ml' object has no attribute 'refresh_databases'

@Lasp94 It's also in the pacman keyring: pacman-key --export 1D1F0DC78F173680 > xyne.asc @Shebang Pacman's definition of a "foreign" package is anything that it can't find in the sync databases. If you are overwriting those files with new ones (with pacman -Sy, powerpill -Sy, yaourt -Sy, or anything else that updates them), then the sync database is temporarily unavailable (or at least incompletely). Running "pacman -Qm" in parallel will thus check empty/incomplete databases and report everything it doesn't find as foreign. Just break up the sync and download operations: $ powerpill -Sy $ pacman -Qm > foreign.txt $ powerpill -Su and replace "pacman -Qm" with "cat foreign.txt" in your script.

I can't verify your PGP signature! (unknown public key 1D1F0DC78F173680) Which server can I use for your key? edit: Thanks @Xyne for your answer, I had some problems not due to this package.

Shebang commented on 2017-06-14 18:10 (UTC)

Hey, unsure how else to contact Xyne other than email so I'm reporting this here. Not an issue with the packaging, but upstream issue, and by no means a show stopper, just some odd behavior I've noticed. Issue: While powerpill is running, downloading packages, etc... Native pacman packages show up in pacman -Qm Steps to reproduce: 1. Type pacman -Qm to list non-native packages. Take note of packages in list. 2. Run powerpill -Syu 3. While it's doing its thing, type pacman -Qm again, it will now show a ton of native packages in this list 4. After powerpill completes, the non-native package query will run as expected. This affects me in a way as before powerpill, I'd download my AUR packages at the same time as the native packages but now must do so asynchronously instead of at the same time that powerpill is running.

Xyne commented on 2017-03-20 05:13 (UTC)

@postadelmaga powerpill depends on python3-xcpf python3-xcpf depends on python3-memoizedb makepkg does not automatically resolve dependencies when installing AUR packages, but pacman will not let you install a package without them unless you explicitly disable dependency checks. You must have disabled dependency checks if you were able to install powerpill without python3-memoizedb. There are AUR helpers to automate dependency resolution, but until you figure out what you did I would recommend sticking to manual installation.

postadelmaga commented on 2017-03-20 04:49 (UTC)

I have installed the packaged but along with it I didn't get `python3-memoizedb` I had to install this package manually from AUR ...

Xyne commented on 2017-02-15 10:47 (UTC)

@yebenny Powerpill depends on python3-xcpf, which in turn depends on python-xdg. If you have installed the package correctly then the dependencies should be satisfied. You should never use pip to satisfy dependencies of pacman packages.

yebenny commented on 2017-02-11 13:50 (UTC)

This package depends on pyXDG, but it was not listed in the dependencies. workaround: sudo pip install pyXDG

thoth commented on 2017-01-14 23:42 (UTC)

adding xyne's repos fixed everything after a `pacman -Syu`, powerpill is truly astounding on gigabit fiber

Xyne commented on 2017-01-12 23:11 (UTC)

@thoth Python was upgraded from version 3.5 to 3.6. You have to rebuild all of your Python AUR packages to work with the new version. If you don't want to rebuild powerpill and its dependencies, you can use the repo on my site:

It doesn't directly depend on python3-memoizedb. Some of its dependencies do, but those already specify python3-memoizedb in their respective dependencies arrays.

postadelmaga commented on 2016-11-19 16:40 (UTC)

please add dependency python3-memoizedb

Xyne commented on 2016-11-05 22:18 (UTC)

Powerpill strictly interprets the SigLevel directives in pacman.conf. Adjust them accordingly. The official repos do not provide database signatures so they should be set to "PackageRequired".

@alive4ever You're right. I've made a note of it and will move the pages when I finally have time to release the refactored backend. I doubt that I will include a section 8 man page through because the argparse library does a good enough job documenting the extra options (without needing to keep two documents in sync) and the rest emulate pacman. Thanks for pointing out the error.

alive4ever commented on 2016-08-25 22:14 (UTC)

powerpill.json manpage should be located on section 5 instead of section 1, according to intro(1) and intro(5). It would be better to include a manual page for powerpill command in section 8, though.

Xyne commented on 2016-07-07 22:55 (UTC)

@KnightMustard Failed how? Did it complain about an unknown signing key? If so, that's because you need to import the key yourself to your personal keyring (not the pacman keyring). Examples of how to import the key are posted in comments on my other packages packages. Check the wiki as well.

Anyone else having issues with powerpill not updating packages? Pacman and Yaourt still work, but not powerpill.

Xyne commented on 2016-05-24 20:44 (UTC)

@pszynk Fixed, thanks. Sorry for the delay. I somehow missed the comment notifications. @computerfr33k powerpill depends on python3-xcpf. python3-xcpy depends on python3-memoizedb. If you need to install it manually, then something else is broken because it should be picked up during dependency resolution.

computerfr33k commented on 2016-05-02 22:39 (UTC)

Missing dependency: python3-memoizedb Had to manually install this as pointed out in the previous comments, not sure why this isn't listed as a dependency since it doesn't run without it.

Hey, there is a bug in clean() method (when calling powerpill like: $ powerpill --powerpill-clean. Lines 910 and 913 with logging. No variable path, only dpath :).

maxyme commented on 2016-04-21 01:23 (UTC)

@Xyne Using the AUR package, I used yaourt which was configured to download using powerpill. It uses powerpill as a wrapper for pacman, so I assume it made the call to upgrade one package, the powerpill call ended, then it called powerpill to upgrade the next dep, but the dep it just installed broke powerpill until the other dep and powerpill was updated. Either way, got it working by just upgrading configuring yaourt to use pacman temporarily.

lmat commented on 2016-04-21 00:04 (UTC)

powerpill --version shows "Pacman v5.0.1 - libalpm v10.0.1", so I think it's up to date. I installed using your repo. pacman allows me to continue to use your repo, but powerpill seems confused about the keys. Oh yeah, cute picture in pacman --version!

Xyne commented on 2016-04-20 20:15 (UTC)

@lmat Does that error still occur with the latest version of powerpill? @mattlyons All imports are handled when it starts up. After that you can remove or change the modules on disk without affecting the running application because everything is already in RAM. How did you upgrade powerpill and its deps? Are you using my repo or are you installing them from the AUR? If the former, did you do a partial upgrade or abort an upgrade midway? If the latter, did you upgrade all of the deps before invoking powerpill?

maxyme commented on 2016-04-20 15:33 (UTC) (edited on 2016-04-20 19:52 (UTC) by maxyme)

Edit: I'm pretty sure this is because I used powerpill to upgrade and updating the deps broke powerpill, which was being used to upgrade. Upgrading with pacman fixes it. I get this error upgrading to the most recent version: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python3.5/", line 170, in _run_module_as_main "__main__", mod_spec) File "/usr/lib/python3.5/", line 85, in _run_code exec(code, run_globals) File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/", line 36, in <module> import pm2ml File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/", line 34, in <module> import XCPF.ArchPkg ImportError: No module named 'XCPF.ArchPkg'; 'XCPF' is not a package

Xyne commented on 2016-03-29 00:11 (UTC)

@BrianAllred As Lone_Wolf has already pointed out, the dependency is indirect. python3-xcpf depends on python3-memoizedb and powerpill depends on python3-xcpf. PKGBUILD dependencies are only for direct dependencies. Pacman deals with the dependency resolution. You must have disabled dependency resolution when you installed powerpill, which is a bad idea.

Lone_Wolf commented on 2016-03-27 11:44 (UTC)

BrianAllred , that's incorrect. powerpill depends on python3-xcpf , and that depends on python3-memoizedb . File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/", line 24, in <module> import MemoizeDB ImportError: No module named 'MemoizeDB' The last line of the traceback clearly shows that xcpf calls memoizedb.

BrianAllred commented on 2016-03-27 04:33 (UTC)

Line 144 in the current version of is "mdb.db_initialize()". Please update to the latest versions before reporting errors. Sometimes they have already been fixed, and even if not it makes it easier to find the source of the error in the code if we're looking at the same lines. XCGF (where that line is currently located) implements a class to do the equivalent of a "pushd" followed by a "popd" using the "with" keyword to ensure that the current working directory is left as-is for subsequent commands if necessary, instead of a simple "chdir". Powerpill itself isn't trying to do anything in that directory, but the module is used by other code that expects the working directory to remain unchanged after the download. When I have the time I will likely restructure the code where it's not necessary to return to the previous working directory. In the meantime just run it in a different directory. In general running things in non-existing directories tends to generate errors due to various sanity checks even if there are no side effects.

Since Pacman 5.0 was released whenever I run powerpill -Syu I receive download errors for extra.db.sig, core.db.sig, multilib.db.sig, and community.db.sig. Is this just since those sig files still need to be updated on the download server?

@gusdunn Please double-check that you have the latest version of all deps. pm2ml does recognize --select. If the error persists, please pastebin or email me the full output of the error message. The easiest way to check that you have everything up-to-date is to add my repo to pacman.conf.

gusdunn commented on 2016-01-13 16:55 (UTC)

Similar to @lmat I recently updated the powerpill stack but now get the complaint that pm2ml doesnt recognized '--select' option. Altering the powerpill.json file to omit the powerpill option ("select": true) does not correct the problem. But setting the option to ("select": false) does allow execution.

@cyisfor The official databases are not signed. I agree that they should be but doing that is not trivial due to the chain of custody and the way they are released. You can avoid the redundant checks by correctly configuring your pacman.conf file. See the powerpill forum thread for details.

cyisfor commented on 2015-04-29 17:32 (UTC)

Oh, no when it DOES find the *.db.sig files, it's that just one of the mirrors is a bad webserver. It returns a 200 OK HTML document saying "File not found" in german. (I think). Then the signatures don't verify, since they're HTML files, and you can't upgrade.

cyisfor commented on 2015-04-29 17:29 (UTC)

Download aborted, *.db.sig, Resource not found (10 min later, same thing...) Don't any of the pacman mirrors have the signatures for the current databases? It seems like a thing they ought to have. Are all the mirrors just trying to shave off that 2K by omitting the files, or are perhaps the signatures are stored under a different filename? It finds them... eventually... perhaps the signatures are ONLY stored on the main mirror, and checking the others is an exercise in futility? At any rate, it makes powerpill mostly unusable for upgrades, if it's going to spend a half hour checking every single mirror for signature files that they just don't have.

You need to rebuild the entire dependency hierarchy (pm2ml, etc.) against the new version of Python, not just powerpill. I don't know how to make this any clearer.

@kmicu Sorry, your intention wasn't clear from your post. It seemed that you were reporting what you thought was an error with the current package. Thanks for the warning about the upcoming error. I'll try to deal with it quickly when Python 3.4 is officially released.

kmicu commented on 2014-03-24 14:07 (UTC)

"Until then, if you wish to use [testing] then it is your responsibility to rebuild the necessary packages yourself." Yes, I am aware of that. The point of [testing] repo and therefore my "reposnsibility" is to inform about possible issues and that was a reason behind my comment. I did not flag your package as outdated, but only inform you and users about possible future problems. Nothing more.

Xyne commented on 2014-03-23 16:43 (UTC)

AUR packages (and those in my repos) work with packages in the official repos. When Python 3.4 is officially released by Arch then I will update my Python 3 packages. Until then, if you wish to use [testing] then it is your responsibility to rebuild the necessary packages yourself. All of the PKGBUILDs are available and there is no compilation required so this is relatively quick and easy to do.

After upgrade to python 3.4 from [testing] repo we have: > powerpill Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/powerpill", line 41, in <module> import pm2ml ImportError: No module named 'pm2ml' After downgrading to 3.3.5 everything is ok: warning: downgrading package pyalpm (0.6.2-2 => 0.6.2-1) :: pyalpm: requires python>=3.4 warning: downgrading package python (3.4.0-2 => 3.3.5-1) Additional info: - Python 3.4.0 upgrade requires rebuild for any packages that linking to or put files in usr/lib/python3.3" - Please also take the time to check if your package still mention "python-distribute" anywhere, and change it to "python-setuptools".

Some servers do not correctly handle HEAD requests and/or conditional GET requests. Without knowing if "powerpill -Syy" would have worked or if "pacman -Sy" would have failed, I can't tell if it is a powerpill error or a server error, but I expect that it is the latter. If it happens again, try "powerpill -Syy", then switch to a different mirror. If it happens with other mirrors, pastebin your pacman and powerpill configuration files (including the mirrorlist) so that I can (try to) :determine the cause of the problem.

Powerpill corrupted my sync DBs somehow (fixable by `sudo pacman -Syy`). I installed powerpill today and did `sudo powerpill -Syuw`, then I tried to double-check with pacman: % sudo pacman -Syuw error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data error: GPGME error: No data :: Synchronizing package databases... core is up to date extra is up to date community is up to date multilib is up to date error: database 'core' is not valid (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature)) error: database 'extra' is not valid (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature)) error: database 'community' is not valid (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature)) error: database 'multilib' is not valid (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature)) Did I do something wrong?

2013.5.10 supports the new Python 3 version of Pacserve and should be noticeably faster now due to both more efficient pacserve querying and better pacserve peer detection.

It looks like a pyalpm error. Try re-installing pyalpm (and maybe pacman).

ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory I assume this is related to the release of Pacman 4.1? Not sure.

@atyoung pacman -Si python Name : python ... Provides : python3 I prefer explicitly versioned Python dependencies. It's future-proof. For the same reason, all of my Python 3 packages are named python3-* instead of python-*. Using a naming and dependency scheme that requires massive renaming when upstream changes is silly when there is a perfectly logical way to avoid it without any issues whatsoever.

Dependency needs to be python not python3. python2 has the number appended to the package name, python 3 is just python.

@ranger Thanks, I have added rsync as an optional dependency. @oboedad55 Please try again with the current PKGBUILD.

ranger commented on 2012-12-12 12:51 (UTC)

rsync shouldn't be a dependency?
