missing python-commonmark dependency

actionless commented on 2020-12-04 11:56

thanks yall for the feedback, i've decided to add a workaround to handle python version upgrades in the just released version of pikaur:

however, if you already experiencing ModuleNotFoundError, you need to rebuild pikaur manually with makepkg (installing this update before upgrading python/pyalpm would avoid that).

@Anarconda Rebuild/reinstall is the first thing I always try and it didn't work - second time around it did though.

Go figure?

Thanks anyway working now.

@viking777 Just recompile pikaur and it will work again.

After update to python 3.9 pikaur will no longer start.

pikaur -Syu Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/pikaur", line 5, in <module> from pikaur.main import main ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pikaur'

Same error on 2 different Arch based distros.

Using version 1.6.13-1.

This is great, faster than yay. I love the Arch Linux news on when running updates, too. Saves a lot of time. Just wish it had a shorter name, like pow or paur. I know I can alias, but then the aur stuff doesn't work for bash tab completion. That's small stuff though, will definitely keep using pikaur.

After trial and error, it appears the culprit was python2-numpy that pulled in the dependency on haskell-xcffib.

Luckily we no longer need numpy under python2 so deinstalling it got things rolling again.

pikaur was not the origin of the problem but rather the myopic PKGBUILD limitation of forcing arch=('x86_64') when the binaries are not multi-architecture permitting arch=('all'). Pity, this is not the case with ports or pkgsrc... Actually, it is a PITA for aarch64!

From my initial comment: It used to work, but what is this haskell business all of a sudden?

actionless commented on 2020-07-13 12:24

@risto3, so create a bug in their bugtracker, why do you asking it here

risto3 commented on 2020-07-13 12:13

seems this has not been built [successfully] for aarch64 (

$ uname -a
