Cannot start seaf-cli on fedora


i’d like to sync some libraries by command line tool, but only get the following error:
raceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/bin/seaf-cli”, line 99, in
import seafile
File “/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/seafile/”, line 2, in
from rpcclient import SeafileRpcClient as RpcClient
File “/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/seafile/”, line 1, in
from pysearpc import searpc_func, SearpcError, NamedPipeClient
ImportError: cannot import name NamedPipeClient

i’m running fedora 29 (and 30beta) and i’m using the rpms of the distribution.

any hint what package/module i’m missing???


I am stuck at the very same problem as Heinz. I am running Fedora 30 and use the distribution’s rpms (the officially recommended way, and there are no other rpms available for Fedora30).

Any news on this topic?
How can we make this work?

Thanks for your help,

FYI: there’s an updated rpm libsearpc-3.1.12 available in the testing-repository, which works now for me
