It is recommended that you use the aura-bin package as the official way to install Aura.

I'm having an issue with installing powerpill using aura. A couple of the packages (python3-xcgf and python3-xcpf) fail because aura fails to recognize the developer's public key (unknown public key):

With gpg --recv-key I've added key 1D1F0DC78F173680 to root's, my normal user's, and pacman's (pacman-key). I was able to makepkg the PKGBUILD directly from AUR, not using aura, so I think it's a problem with aura.

aura-bin suffers the same problem.

@biinari I am working on this. Turns out `lens-aeson` won't build without a new tarball uploaded to Hackage with revised metadata. I've contacted the author about it. Once fixed, I can create an AUR package for both that and `wreq` here.

biinari commented on 2015-08-11 02:02

Looks like haskell-wreq AUR package disappeared.

Hmmm, maybe the disk errors I'm mentioning are a different problem, because they happen seemingly randomly doing other things too and the live media crashes, but the openFile error is still reproducible.

Anonymous mentioned below:

After doing
mkdir /var/cache/aura && mkdir /var/cache/aura/pkgbuilds
everything is working fine...

I'm able to reproduce this. If /var/cache/aura/pkgbuilds doesn't exist, an error ocurrs, and in my case the live media (which is where I'm running aura) completely fails with disk errors each time and reading and writing to the root filesystem stops working.

To reproduce, just get the live media, boot into root, create a normal user, install binutils and abs, add the user to sudoers, download aura-bin.tar.gz, untar it, go into the aura-bin folder, makepkg as the normal user, then

cd src
sudo ./aura -A neovim-git

and you'll see the live media burn to the ground.

Dependency `haskell-network-info' of `aura' does not exist.

speedytux commented on 2015-03-14 07:10

Dependency error: haskell-network-info ????

fosskers commented on 2014-10-23 04:21

Hey guys, as I've updated `reflection` this should build again.

ratdude747 commented on 2014-10-14 21:30

Tried installing on an x86 system, but getting the haskell-core packages to play well with everything else (due to different GHC versions) made this impossible.

Not meaning to complain, just wanting to inform of the present situation for those who can't install aura-bin.

Well, that's somewhere, not on a site related to Arch proper. Anyway…

I just tried installing aura on a new machine, and it fails with the same error message, leading me to conclude that aura currently is not buildable on vanilla Arch. I've resorted to installing aura-bin, which works fine.
