[SOLVED] Metadata Lookup Fails

Post by Vaska » Fri Sep 01, 2017 11:23 pm

Hi - I'm having trouble with metadata lookups. Everything was working fine for me just last week. I’m running the latest 0.28-fixes branch (currently v0.28.1-45-g73cf7474ad) on Gentoo with both python 2.7 and 3.4 on the system (2.7 is the default).

This is what happens when I try to run the lookup command manually.

Code: Select all

/usr/local/share/mythtv/metadata/Movie/tmdb3.py -l en -a US -M "Bizarre Foods: Delicious Destinations"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/share/mythtv/metadata/Movie/tmdb3.py", line 322, in <module>
    main()
  File "/usr/local/share/mythtv/metadata/Movie/tmdb3.py", line 284, in main
    from MythTV.tmdb3 import set_key, set_cache, set_locale
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/MythTV/__init__.py", line 36, in <module>
    from .utility import *
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/MythTV/utility/__init__.py", line 2, in <module>
    from .enum import EnumValue, Enum, BitwiseEnum
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/MythTV/utility/enum.py", line 9, in <module>
    from builtins import int
ImportError: No module named builtins
If someone could offer me a pointer to get me in the right direction I would really appreciate it. I just have no idea what to do. I've tried rebuilding and reinstalling the python bindings but that doesn't seem to help.

Answered on IRC, but the solution is adding the Python future package
(which has the builtins module.)

Other Python packages involved are urlllib3, requests and requests-cache.

Ref: #13084 which provides fixes for ttvdb.py's conversion to JSON.
TTVDB is turning off the existing V1 XML API on 9/30/2017.

Thanks again for the help on IRC bill6502. As described, I was able to fix the issue by emerging dev-python/requests-cache and dev-python/future.

Would someone be so kind as to include the link to the fix,.. I have trawled the IRC stuff and cannot find the required stuff referring to python future,.. no irc search as far as I can see,.. ( I will of course stand corrected if required )

I assume,... this python issue is the cause of my "silence" failing to run,.. I am running 0.28 on a 16.04 Ubuntu

Many Tx
