I have an updated version of this PKGBUILD, with a working .desktop file for the web PVR manager. Similar to Debian's get_iplayer_web_pvr, but it adds another script file to automatically open the users preferred browser at the managers address.

Let me know if anyone if you want it uploaded. Only issue is the icon, I'm using one from the iPlayer site.

Please add "atomicparsley", "id3v2" and "mplayer" as opt depend to this and the get_iplayer-git package.

perl-net-http is also needed.

I'm also getting the same error that @Chris_tian posted.

There seems to be one further dependency: perl-http-cookies

Without this package I get the following error if I try to start get_iplayer:
Can't locate HTTP/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl .) at /usr/bin/get_iplayer line 60.

@fastfret79 Hi. Thanks. I appreciate it.

@carukia Their website (http) is up but their FTP is down. I've emailed them to make sure they know.

In the meantime, if you're desperate to get get_iplayer installed, install the git version which is still accessible:

Can't reproduce your error GalacticArachnid - are you getting the error on building or running?

Is your system (particularly perl-html-parser package) up-to-date? My sits in /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/auto/HTML/Parser/ Are you using a different version to the extra repo?

Removal of Perl_Istack_sp_ptr in latest perl update (5.14.1-1) breaks package..

/usr/bin/perl: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/auto/HTML/Parser/ undefined symbol: Perl_Istack_sp_ptr
