Added option to pkgbuild file to use 'python-crypto' instead of 'python-pycryptodome' and 'python-pycountry' instead of both python iso packages.

@SpotlightKid The latest python-sphinx-4.0.0-1 package update in arch also brings this change from upstream where generated man doc pages are placed in according path.
Generate man page section directories #7996
#7996: manpage: Make a section directory on build manpage by default (see man_make_section_directory)

Error in packaging step:

running install_scripts
Installing streamlink script to /home/chris/.local/share/pikaur/aur_repos/streamlink-git/pkg/streamlink-git/usr/bin
install: cannot stat 'build/sphinx/man/1/streamlink.1': No such file or directory

The man page path should be build/sphinx/man/streamlink.1.

Enjoy your indefinite suspension.

@metak, please do your research. There is proof that this package is out of date, and I can prove in detail that what I know is correct and honest. Don't pay attention to people on here that can't back up their facts. Just check out the streamlink website and you will see that I am indeed correct.

@eschwartz Do what you want with my account, you know I am right if you were smart enough and had the proof that this package wasn't out of date, I have everything to prove this package is out of date. If you delete, suspend or ban me from this site you only prove my point and that will not stop me from coming back. I am and will forever be smarter than you so as long as I am the one backing up my statements and comments.

@eschwartz Threating to suspend my account only proves my point. Ignorant twit. Do your research.

@eschwartz wow congrats on your lack of research. I bet you don't even use streamlink-twitch-gui do you. This version of streamlink 1.7 does not work with streamlink-twitch-gui twit. And if you looked at the streamlink website you would know for a fact that there is a newer version of streamlink. Do your research before commenting on other people's comments when that person has all the facts and knowledge. Stop being stupid.

Speaking with my Trusted User hat on, I can authoritatively state that this -git package is NOT out of date, per the rules of the AUR as well as the big fat note at

For precisely the reason you've been told, but refuse to accept. I have nothing new to add to this conversation EXCEPT my authority as a moderator on this site telling you you are wrong.

Now, one more insult and I suspend your account.

As you've previously DELETED your account, then recreated one with the same name in order to keep arguing, I can go a lot further than suspending your account if you try to play the sockpuppet game.

@SpotlightKid, really the PKGBUILD doesn't need to be updated. Please tell me you aren't this stupid in real life. If the PKGBUILD file didn't need to be updated then why is the current version here 1.7 when streamlink's website states the latest version is 2.0. WAKE UP... If the PKGBUILD didn't need to be updated then the version would be 2.0. Airhead.

SpotlightKid commented on 2021-01-04 19:58

@techandy1: We already explained to you why the PKGBUILD does not need to be updated. If you haven't read these comments, please do so. And if you still don't understand, please read up on the Arch wiki what VCS packages are and why their version number listed here is irrelevant. Please stop posting comments here about the package being outdated, because it is not. If you insist it is, you are only making a fool of yourself.
