The issue arises with pacaur because it uses the RPC interface to compute the dependency tree (see[]=gnome-perl). Bauerbill and aurutils are most probably affected by that issue as they also use the RPC. Yaourt and makepkg act on the PKGBUILD directly and do not rely on the .SRCINFO file, so they don't choke here.

The issue seems solved for now.

Right, i see the problem, thanks for the hint! .PKGINFO is also buggy, but for some reason pacman and yaourt do not complain... I also tried to echo the depends array and the output is correct:

echo "depends: ${depends[*]}"


depends: gnomecanvas-perl gnome-vfs-perl libgnomeui perl perl>=5.24 perl<5.25

So whatever goes wrong here happens when generating .SRCINFO and .PKGINFO and this is nothing I can influence.

I simplified the perl version information to read "perl=5.24" (which is the same as "perl>=5.24 perl<5.25" as far as I understand - if there are some subtle differences, please let me know). Now .PKGINFO is correct but .SRCINFO is still buggy. Please test if this is sufficient for pacaur to install it correctly.

edit: Ok, I see the subtle difference, Perl has minor versions 5.24.x... Will think about how to deal with that... Since the installation fails due to this, I removed the version check completely for now... Hints or people who are willing to take care of the package are welcome. :)

The AUR metadata is indeed buggy:

For some reason, the min/max variable weren't successfully created on the machine that generated the .SRCINFO file.

@PhotonX building and installing wokrs when using makepkg and pacman. Still don't work when using pacaur.

Could any of you please check if building and installing works when using makepkg and pacman rather than pacaur?

No good here still.

Please try if pacaur can handle the installation now.

edit: Sorry, had to revert the change, since it broke the installation for yaourt. What do you mean by "empty min/max"? You can run

perl -e '$v = $^V->{version}; print $v->[0].".".($v->[1]);'

and see whether it returns something on your machine. In my case it returned 5.24.

I have just copied the PKGBUILD from Arch's official repos so far. Building with makepkg worked for me, does it work for you?

I will have a closer look at the problem in the evening.

I guess it should skip "depends+=("perl>=$_perlver_min" "perl<$_perlver_max")" for empty min/max?!

The depends for perl are weird, and cause pacaur to fail:
