The $pkgver-scheme has changed.

You should increment $epoch (or set epoch=1, if it is not set yet, as in this case).

I have still an etc-update with version 13723-9 on my system, now the version is 2.3.99-1, which is smaller and means there will not be an automatic update. But in fact it seems that the versioning scheme has changed. Then you must increment epoch, to indicate that it is still newer.

@yochananmarqos the script is not out of date please check https://github.com/gentoo/portage/blob/master/bin/etc-update/ and I will look at the optdepends.

Please add:

optdepends=('dialog: for menu mode'
            'colordiff: for colored diff output')

@shaleny good point, this will be implemented

@skycoder42 what line do you want to add?

shaleny commented on 2019-01-11 21:40

Is there a reason why /etc/etc-update.conf is not added to backup array in the PKGBUILD? With every package update I lose my customizations to that file.

Skycoder42 commented on 2018-12-08 13:16

@kewl Are there any dangers by just adding that line there myself?

We have changed how Arch derivatives are recognized by etc-update, now using ID_LIKE. If your distro is not recognized as Arch, please report to your distro project leaders to set ID_LIKE=archin os-release.

@gissf1 this has been implemented now

@kewl Thanks for doing that. Are you able to provide an upstream link or something I can use to track that PR?

kewl commented on 2018-08-01 20:09

@gissf1 I have done a PR for you, if accepted upstream it will be added in a next version
