I also tried installing prey from source and hit the same error when trying to configure this. This appears to be an upstream problem and I've contacted them about it.

Experiencing same issue as daboka below. I checked and /etc/issue exists. It was rw for root only at first (which should have worked fine, as I was running the config using sudo). Expanded the permissions to give everyone read-write, no help.

Sorry for not responding, I've been away for a few days, tried the new PKGBUILD and also the one from JP-Ellis (looking back on logs applying the patch with the original didn't happen for me either), and still got the same error

/etc/issue does exist it's contents are the following:
Arch Linux \r (\l)

JP-Ellis commented on 2015-02-04 07:32

In addition to daboka and mattlyons' issues, the PKGBUILD was not working properly for me. In particular, the patch command could not find the appropriate patch. I have done a couple of modifications to the PKGBUILD and moved the preparatory steps into a `prepare()` function and left the installation steps to the `package()` function. The updated PKGBUILD can be seen over at https://gist.github.com/JP-Ellis/6a78c438128218c179a7.

warning: directory ownership differs on /opt/prey-node-client/node_modules/which/bin/
filesystem: 996:994 package: 0:0

When upgrading just now. I don't think the directory perms should be marked as 0 in the package.
I think this applies to everything in /opt/prey-node-client/

I'm not an expert on the internals of prey, but it looks like the corresponding lines are trying to read /etc/issue, does that file exist? Or maybe some permission issue?

Either way, you should probably report it upstream.

daboka commented on 2015-02-03 15:01

I'm getting this output, when trying to log in (sudo prey config account setup) and the last line of it, when trying to do the same via the GUI. What should I do to fix this?

Just pushed a new PKGBUILD. Includes the version update (1.3.6) and fixed Python paths. For details check https://github.com/lutoma/pkgbuilds/compare/795ffb49335edf64053d59235ae539810115f588...master

I repport the lack of version on python sheebang to upstrea, they want fix that since is a python.org suggestion too.
maybe if you help them fix that this could land upstream faster.
