I've just did a pacman update, followed by a reboot and blink doesn't work anymore.
Here's what I get:

$ blink
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/bin/blink", line 67, in <module>
from blink import Blink
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/blink/", line 15, in <module>

from import (RAND_add,
ImportError: cannot import name RAND_egd

Have anyone ever encountered this error? Thanks.

@wlp7s0 I add python2-service-identity as optional dependency if you want avoid the warning.

Take note that if you are using a server without TLS connection or with dedicated certificate you can ignore the warning because blink will work perfectly.

After recent system update blink shows this error (recompiled and installed latest version):
:0: UserWarning: You do not have a working installation of the service_identity module: 'No module named service_identity'. Please install it from <> and make sure all of its dependencies are satisfied. Without the service_identity module and a recent enough pyOpenSSL to support it, Twisted can perform only rudimentary TLS client hostname verification. Many valid certificate/hostname mappings may be rejected.
ImportError: No module named asn1crypto.algos

To solve:
# pacman -S extra/python2-pip
# pip2 install service_identity

Could not find updated package that broke it, sorry. But installing module again solves the problem.

@theforeigner You must rebuild ALL AUR dependencies of blink and blink itself. I think that the better option is uninstall Blink and its dependencies, remove the packages cache in /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ and install again.

But IMPORTANT, rebuild ALL AUR. It's works fine.

I wanted to see if updating the AG Projects dependencies would help, as they've been updated fairly recently as well as blink itself. I still get the same error starting blink (Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (version 0x50701) with this library (version 0x50800)), but thought that perhaps you want to update them either way.

Their archiving system of new releases is a mess and it's hard to find the proper download location. Here are those I was able to find:

eventlib 0.2.3 (current one in AUR is 0.2.2):
msrplib 0.19.1 (current one in AUR is 0.19.0):

Bummer! After updating to qt5 5.8.0, Blink won't start. The error I get is:
Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (version 0x50701) with this library (version 0x50800)

I tried rebuilding python2-sipsimple, but still get the same error.

Thanks again! Can confirm it works fine with python-sipsimple 3.1 and latest qt4 packages too

ogarcia commented on 2017-01-27 07:32

@wlp7s0 Yes, the PKGBUILD in pastebin

wlp7s0 commented on 2017-01-27 06:30

Thanks a lot ogarcia for updating the package. Can you please also provide another source to PKGBUILD file because I have over quota error from

Thank you ogarcia, I can confirm it's working fine with sipsimple 3.1.0.
