@katt thanks. FYI - the same happened with the anki package from AUR. I have about 90 AUR packages installed, and those are the only ones where it occurs. Same situation; no problem on the laptop. So it's clearly my desktop. But it's interesting anyhow. I will examine deeper and tell you should I find something.

@romero I hope you can find a solution as I cannot reproduce it here, neither in or outside my chroot.

@katt - thanks for your reply! yt-dlp-git is the only package with this problem, hence mentioning it. desktop and laptop have as only difference a GPU and a different set of drivers. otherwise, the system is mirrored. both run vanilla Arch and dwm. I'll keep checking, but would be glad to hear if you come across something similar or would have an idea. I'll let you know as well should I find something.

@romero This doesn't seem related to this package, are you sure it's only happening when building yt-dlp-git? Also perhaps compare what is different between your desktop and laptop.

@katt - thanks so much for maintaining! I tried removing the old build files and even cloned it anew, but it always results in an error:

PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/apply_defaults-0.1.6-py3.10.egg-info/PKG-INFO'

ERROR Backend subprocess exited when trying to invoke get_requires_for_build_wheel
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

At least on my desktop. On my laptop, all worked fine. Whatever I try, I can't get it resolved. Any idea?

Thanks @Katt, fixed it.

@theoldfellow I was having this problem too outside of my chroot, but after removing old build files (src+pkg dirs) and rebuilding I can no longer reproduce this.

I get this error: ==> Entering fakeroot environment... ==> Starting package()... usage: python -m installer [-h] [--destdir path] [--compile-bytecode level] [--no-compile-bytecode] wheel python -m installer: error: unrecognized arguments: dist/yt_dlp-2022.8.19.1-py2.py3-none-any.whl ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

@Flat Done, also sorry for the delay, I forgot about it until now (works fine in chroot either way).

@katt pytest -v -m "not download" -k "not test_escaping" the -m deselection won't work because the only marker setup in yt-dlp is download and the strict flag is set in setup.cfg.
