@ŧypecasto Took just shy of a month to fix the licensing issues - I had to reach MaxMind's legal team and publish a new npm lib - but you should now be able to install edex again - if you're still interested.

@typecasto Tracked:

Ok, it's a fucking mess. MaxMind updated their EULA and they now require tokens to access db downloads.


Working on it.

Downloading maxmind databases...
      throw er; // Unhandled 'error' event
Error: getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND

The MaxMind endpoint seems to have gone offline, which is preventing you from retrieving GeoIP databases eDEX needs to build.

I can't reach it either, I'm going to look into this.

I'm having trouble installing this (and also edex-ui) from a (pretty much stock) system. (the same issue happens in a bone-stock arch system, though this log is not from it.)

My install log is located at

Am I missing any dependencies? Do you need any other files to help? Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

@GitSquared Sorry, I must have misread something. Probably the important things like "I fixed it". It's now building correctly. Thanks.

@suffer Correct me if I'm mistaken, but isn't that the point of -git packages? Most AUR helpers will check if there is a newer version than the one installed (using pkgver) on -git packages afaik, so there shouldn't be any case of "update loops".

As I'm sure you know there is also a stable package (edex-ui) that refers to the latest git tag and is manually updated on each new release.

@GitSquared The side effect of that, though, is that users always will see there is a newer version available. I built this package several times before I realized what was going on. Also, if anyone is automating AUR updates, they will be stuck in an update loop.

@suffer this was an issue in the pkgver script. I fixed it to use versioning information from package.json instead of the last git tag. Note that this package will always refer to the latest master commit.

This is says 3.0.0.pre.7dd1e98-1 but installs 2.2.2.r86.g88f5eed-1 (which is last commit). I guess you need to add timetravel to makedepends.
