@johnbrady: Thank for your report. It seems broken since Python 2 removal from official repositories. Exaile will use Python 3 in the next version, so while waiting, the check() function is disabled (4d38246b63b9).

BTW, you can use the --nocheck argument with makepkg to workaround this, or modify the BUILDENV variable in /etc/makepkg.conf.

python2-mox3 has now been removed from the Arch [community] repository, and is a mandatory requirement for installing Exaile, so running "makepkg -s" fails on the current PKGBUILD for 4.0.2. How are we supposed to workaround this? [I manually removed the "check" specific lines from the downloaded PKGBUILD and it worked for me].

@Akrai: lyricwiki requires python2-beautifulsoup4 (an optional dependency), and python2-lxml is an optional dependency of python2-beautifulsoup4.

So, it is an optional dependency of an optional dependency.

Isn't python2-lxml an optional dependency too for getting lyrics from lyricsmania?

@ratzfatz: They are already present in PKGBUILD. To install missing dependencies when use makepkg, pass the --syncdeps option (e.g. makepkg -si).

@Syyn: I'll update the package when a _stable_ version will be released. I know 4.0.0 beta2 is here, but it remains a beta, and some functionalities are missing or buggy ATM in beta2. Please wait for 4.0.0 final.
