@aminvakil, the package has now been updated and the problems I pointed our earlier should be fixed. I tested that it works for me.

If you find other problems, please give me a ping.

@aminvakil, yes, thanks for reminding me.

I ended up submitting a request to merge and orphan the packages, but there was a problem with one of the dependencies that prevented me from making the changes. I decided to wait a bit, but then it slipped from my mind.

I'll try to get to it over the weekend.

@dkasak, You are absolutely right, are you willing to fix it then?

dkasak commented on 2020-10-09 07:22 (UTC)

Judging by theHarvester's requirements.txt (, the following dependencies seem to be superfluous:

python-censys python-decorator python-grequests python-multiprocess python-pyaml python-pycares python-pytest

Note that python-pyaml (pyaml on PyPI) is incorrect and the actual dependency should be python-yaml (PyYAML on PyPI). It's hard to notice because the packages are confusingly named.

Also, any idea why python-theharvester-git also exists? I asked there but there's no response so far.

The following patch makes this package build for me and it appears to work (I tested several sources):

As mentioned in the commit message, this fixes the dependency list to match upstream's requirements.txt, moves the api-keys.yaml location to /etc/theHarvester and lists all APIs that require keys in the post-install message.

What is the difference between this package and theharvester-git?

Also, this package is missing at least python-aiohttp as a dependency.

got this error

 -> Could not find all required packages:
        python2-netaddr (Wanted by: theharvester-git -> python-censys)

I have gone through the requirements.txt of the project and added new dependencies. This project's dependencies seem to change often, so sometimes it's hard to keep up.

Thank you for your comments.
