Fixed. Thanks

Replace line 21 in PKGBUILD with

ln -s /opt/$pkgname/code-server $pkgdir/usr/bin/$pkgname

Symlink you are creating now is invalid and points to the build location, not to the binary in /opt.

Took a stab at writing a new pkgbuild for the new download location:

pkgdesc="Run VS Code on a remote server"

package() {
  cd "$srcdir"/"${_dirname}"
  find . -type f -exec install -Dm 755 "{}" "$pkgdir/opt/$pkgname/{}" \;
  mkdir -p $pkgdir/usr/bin/
  ln -s $pkgdir/opt/$pkgname/code-server $pkgdir/usr/bin/$pkgname
  install -Dm644 LICENSE.txt "$pkgdir"/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/LICENSE

@EnKrypt should be good now.

coadler commented on 2019-09-17 20:36

My bad. Didn't realize Asher was testing auto publishing on CI and he removed them. Will fix

EnKrypt commented on 2019-09-17 20:33

Odd. Looks like a release was unpublished from Github, causing this repo to point to an invalid source.

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found

Cool, though build time isn't bad at all. Keep in mind that users of Arch Linux ARM and x86 derivatives are also fetching and building AUR packages.

@tinywrkb, thanks! I was planning to update this to build from source soon-ish, but unfortunately there are still a few blockers. The most important of these being the compile time. We plan to get that down to around 10-15 seconds which is when I will update this to compile from source. Will definitely use your diff when the time comes :)

@coadler, see the diff if you want to build from source instead of pulling the binary release. This needs some testing to confirm nothing is broken.
I'm not really using coder-server or vscode ATM and only evaluated coder-server today to see how well it works. It looks fine on my system but it be wiser to test this more thoroughly. Don't feel compelled to convert the package if you thing the it would be too much of a hassle to maintain it.

Hey, thanks for maintaining this! One suggestion, maybe you should consider adding net-tools to the dependencies. Recently installed on a server and came around this:
