It seems that currently Nikola requires python-piexif 1.0.4 while the latest AUR package provides 1.0.3. One should manually download the PKGBUILD for python-piexif and then correct the version and the SHA512 sum until the package gets updated.

@mhwllwig You can just change the makedepends and ask makepkg to build only the Python 3 version.

mhellwig commented on 2015-10-27 20:12

ssso... I can't use this to just build the python3 version of this program?

Kwpolska commented on 2015-10-27 20:06

@mhellwig Because makepkg won’t install/build the dependencies otherwise, as this is a split package.

mhellwig commented on 2015-10-27 19:45

I am somewhat confused. Why does the PKGBUILD have makedepends on the python- as well as python2- versions of a number of programs?

Kwpolska commented on 2015-06-10 15:12

@tuxitop Fortunately, I’m the maintainer of both, so I can just downgrade yapsy and change the dependency here — done.

tuxitop commented on 2015-06-09 21:06

yapsy should be version 1.10.423 as mentioned in requirements.txt, It doesn't work with version 1.11.123 in aur.

shmilee commented on 2015-05-17 19:21

please add optdepends array, for optional features `requirements-extras.txt`.

Fixed. Thanks!

(actually, Nikola doesn’t need configparser anymore. The next release won’t include it as a dependency.)

Please add the dependency for python2-configparser to the PKGBUILD file.

Otherwise you may get an exception like:
