@wget: I've added you as comaintainer as my time is too limited for packaging tasks right now. Please do keep the pinned notice on 1.19.1 in mind before updating the package.

Upgrading to testing fixed the problem.

Alad commented on 2017-11-02 19:08

Probably related to recent ncurses changes. Upgrade to testing, build with makepkg and see if the problem is fixed.

Nope, part of base-devel.

I changed PKGBUILD to use latest stable source from and it worked for me:

.SRCINFO file was not updated on last commit. Installation fails with error:

:: dpkg package(s) failed to install. Check .SRCINFO for mismatching data with PKGBUILD.
