@risto3 your repo is broken:

I have the following now trying to run pikaur on an odroid-c2 (aarch64):

$ LANG=C pikaur -Syu

:: warning: Following package cannot be found in AUR:

It used to work, but what is this haskell business all of a sudden?

Is there a way to use pikaur to clean unused dependencies from your computer?

Looks broken to me, gives a permission error on start

PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pikaur/'

I've reported it here:

@E3LDDfrK There was a major python update (3.7.x - 3.8), all aur packages that depend on python 3 have to be rebuilt.

@E3LDDfrK I reinstalled pikaur and fixed the issue for me.

Had this problem just now:

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

Need to reinstall manually. Any idea what happened?

gettext is in the base-devel group, which is assumed to be installed if you use AUR.

Hi @actionless, is it possible to add makedepends=('gettext') to pkgbuild? THX!
