Your BBC :/

No additional modules & everything is up to date.
Basically reinstalling perl-xml-sax fixed the problem, but I don't know why.
Thanks for the help. perl-xml-libxml is not needed in depends.

willemw commented on 2015-09-30 15:33

get_iplayer itself does not depend on perl-xml-libxml: there is no "use XML::LibXML::SAX" in get_iplayer.

Another Perl program/module depends on it. Can you see which one? Are all packages, including VCS (git, ...) packages up-to-date? Or do you have Perl modules installed, which were installed outside the Arch Linux package manager?

Instead of installing perl-xml-libxml, try installing atomicparsley-largefile-hg (or atomicparsley).

@willemw: That did the trick, thanks. Perhaps it should be added to depends.

willemw commented on 2015-09-29 18:58

@test0: Try it with perl-xml-libxml installed.

Is this still working for anyone? I'm getting this error message (edited to be more verbose):

WARNING: Could not parse programme metadata from http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06dx9gc.xml (Can't locate XML/LibXML/SAX.pm in @INC (you may need to install the XML::LibXML::SAX module) (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl .) at (eval 43) line 1.

perl-xml-sax is installed as a dependency of perl-xml-simple

It seems get_iplayer is not working fully from today.
It gives only one result in the feeds.
PID download still works, but it makes it way less useable.

More info:

The .SWF file isn't owned by root, it's fetched and provided via the BBC. I'm sorry, I am new to Arch.

willemw commented on 2014-04-23 06:19

@dobby420: maybe your .swf file is owned by root. Whatever the problem is, you should not have to run 'sudo'. And please don't advice others to use 'sudo'.

Comments on this page are mainly for packaging issues. For other issues and documentation, it would be better to use, for example, the archlinux forum or the infradead mailinglist, don't you agree?
