You need to keep electron 6.1.1-1 for ferdi-git to work!

@AG_Caesar Yes I tried to clean build with makepkg -sC. I also tried building in a clean chroot which didn't work either. Building it manually following the build instructions from github works. That's why I thought the problem is in the PKGBUILD.

@tam1m I just tried building it myself and it worked perfectly. Did you clean build it? I am no expert on electron builds at all, maybe someone else can help...

Can't run this anymore since a few days. It builds fine but crashes on startup with

Fixed the problem, package updated to electron6 and working again :)

@infinitnet I created a new package for ferdi stable here. The problem does not occur in this version, please use it if you need a more stable environment :)

infinitnet commented on 2019-09-25 12:53

Ferdi is broken again after the latest update. Stuck at the purple screen:

@dreieck If i move npm install lerna lerna bootstrap Into the prepare() section I get an " lerna: Command not found." error. Any idea why that is and how I could fix this?

dreieck commented on 2019-08-23 14:52

It seems that it downloads stuff in build(). This should not happen, every data needed to build the package should already be there during build(). Please download everything needed with the source-array or, as an exception if that is not possible, in prepare().

infinitnet commented on 2019-07-26 08:23

The nag screen is showing up after the latest update. Package or upstream issue or is it just me?

AG_Caesar commented on 2019-06-06 18:05

My first AUR package, please excuse any errors, I am grateful for hints and tips. PKGBUILD is mainly copied from the Franz build, with small edits
