Sorry it's not about building it, it's about running it.

It cannot run if python-pytest is installed, which is very annoying...

@gee I just built it without issues, could you provide me more info so I can reproduce the error

gee commented on 2021-04-20 20:08

Is this working for you? I get this error:

File "/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/_pytest/_code/", line 942, in <module>

TypeError: attrs() got an unexpected keyword argument 'eq'

Which I believe is because the included attrs python package is too old, or maybe it needs to include its own pytest?


edit: removing python-pytest worked

This also requires openssl & libmediainfo per the installation guide.

This site can’t be reached is unreachable. ERR_ADDRESS_UNREACHABLE

I get that error every time i try the download. I have tried with VPN, without VP. same error. its really odd.

@hexdsl that's weird, I have no issues to reach the link, git repo and releases. I tried from different locations and I was able to reach.

hexdsl commented on 2019-04-05 09:12

the address is not reachable. I have checked the git repo and if i navigate to the release its not working there either.

Great! I've just updated and it works as expected. The only thing is that maybe there's no need to use the commands in post_install:

  • "systemd-sysusers pymedusa.conf" and "systemd-tmpfiles --create pymedusa.conf" are automatically called during the installation.

  • I think it's cleaner if you set the working folder in tmpfiles file: d /var/lib/pymedusa 0755 pymedusa pymedusa

Right now I'm using pymedusa with a user service located in my home (.config/systemd) but if you want you can put it in /usr/lib/systemd/user with a starting command like this:

ExecStart=/usr/bin/python /usr/lib/pymedusa/ -q --nolaunch --datadir=%h/.config/pymedusa

Thanks for the update! :)

@Superpiffer Thank you, that's a great suggestion. They're applied on the update.

@blinx: I marked the package as out-of-date, version 0.3.0 was released with python3 migration. I want to report that after the upgrade, changing python2.7 to python3 and upgrading the dependencies to python3, I had some "bad magic number" errors. I solved them simply with "find /opt/medusa/ -name \*.pyc -delete".

Also I have some suggestions:

  • Why the working folder is in /opt? IMHO is better to install in /usr/lib and move the working folder in /var/lib/pymedusa for medusa user.

  • Maybe a systemd user service can be useful, in order to run pymedusa as a different user, with working folder in the home of the user.

  • You can migrate the .install file to sysusers.d and tmpfiled.d entries.

Thanks :)
