Thx... you are right.

Hi @schnedan, it looks like you are running an old configuration layout (depreciated in v4.9.0, removed in v4.10.0). Please see or Happy upgrade, BR

Don't know if it is a bug or what cased ist, but in my VM archey4 stopped working lately with:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/archey", line 33, in <module>
sys.exit(load_entry_point('archey4==4.10.0', 'console_scripts', 'archey')())

.py", line 132, in _entry_instantiator
return Entries[entry.pop('type')].value(
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'pop'

while the same version runs fine on my normal installations (no VM)... don't even know if the VM has to do something with the issue

can you help?

Thanks for your quick feedback, this should have been fixed in 4.7.0-3.

Upgrading from 4.6 -> 4.7 has caused the /usr/bin/archey4 symlink to break, as the symlink creation has now been moved to a post_install() function in a .INSTALL file, which is not executed on package upgrade.

Hi, "Archey 3" does not look maintained anymore, so since April (2017) I'm working on this version. The code is cleaner, optimized and got a bunch of new features. I invite you to check out the GitHub page (, everything is described there, and you'll have a link to my blog, with the reasons behind this decision. One Arch user asked me last summer why Archey 4 was not on AUR, now it's on its way :)

How does it differ from archey3?
