check() fails in clean chroot, needs python-dbus, openssh, and rsync as checkdepends to succeed.

AUR helpers are not helpful. Build with makepkg and it works fine.

Please change _pkgname to pkgbase since this is a split package.

They forgot to bump the version:

prepare() {
  cd "$pkgbase-$pkgver"

  # Correct version in About dialog
  sed -i 's/1.2.0/1.3.0/g' VERSION common/

test() is not a valid function, it's check(). The tests are failing, I'm still working on why.

FAIL: test_powerStatusAvailable (test.test_tools.TestTools)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/build/backintime/src/backintime-1.3.0/common/test/", line 328, in test_powerStatusAvailable
AssertionError: False is not true


Fedora removes, but If I do that they fail because it's missing:

python -m unittest -v -b test/
test/test_tools (unittest.loader._FailedTest) ... ERROR

ERROR: test/test_tools (unittest.loader._FailedTest)
ImportError: Failed to import test module: test/test_tools

I am running into an issue when running backintime:

[code] AttributeError: 'TempPasswordThread' object has no attribute 'isAlive' /usr/bin/backintime-qt: line 31: 22945 Aborted (core dumped) python -Es ${APP_PATH}/ "$@ [/code]

As I understand this issue was solved upstream. Should the pkgbuild be updated?

arch. Maybe something is messed up with my python setup, as I have package installed with pip as user and packages from pacman in the system.

graysky commented on 2019-11-28 16:26

I cannot reproduce. Arch or Manjaro/other?

deisi commented on 2019-11-28 16:15

@graysky same issue.

graysky commented on 2019-11-28 12:31

@deisi - Don't use yay. Build with makepkg.
