[Slackbuilds-users] Sonata lyric fetching failed

I just noticed that sonata didn't fetch lyrics anymore. So I looked
around and found that it uses lyricwiki.org for the purpose. And since
the lyric site has been moved to lyrics.wikia.com, it leads to
non-functional lyric module.

The file in source that bears lyric funtion is sonata/info.py. So while
waiting for the sonata next version, a simple line can be added to
sonata.SlackBuild (just before 'python setup.py install ... ') to solve
this issue:

sed -i "s#lyricwiki.org#lyrics.wikia.org#g" sonata/info.py
