Updated PKGBUILD for Java 7u65:

Nowaker commented on 2014-07-15 22:46

Thanks for letting me know. I will try to do it ASAP.

vitoreiji commented on 2014-07-15 22:46

I see someone has already flagged this as out of date.
I just wanted to add that 7.65 is a rather important update, security-wise.
See what Brian Krebs has to say about it:

Please update ASAP.

Oh I see, since /top is tmpfs, it makes sense. I will remove PKGEXT. Thanks for explanation.

My main intent is development, which I do on a laptop :) But thanks for the suggestion anyway.

As for PKGEXT — I personally believe that it's the user's choice to make, not package maintainer's, and so should be set in the system-wide configuration file (/etc/makepkg.conf) and not in a PKGBUILD. Besides, even for those two minutes, the package file ends up on disk (or in /tmp), where saving those megabytes might make the difference between a successful update and a crash.

Thanks for suggestions, I will check the pkgbuild when I am at my desktop. (re: curly braces)

However, I won't change PKGEXT. It's there for a reason - xz compression is damn slow, and it really makes no sense to xz compress a package just to install it two minutes later. That's how 95% of AUR users do it.

BTW, have a look at oraclejdk* packages, you might find them useful if you main intent is servers.

Have a great day.

Oh, and also please don't set PKGEXT (line 55).

ypoluektovich commented on 2014-06-11 19:52

On line 68 of the PKGBUILD there are curly braces that shouldn't be there.

joschi commented on 2014-06-10 12:06

@ypoluektovich I've removed the setting. Thanks for mentioning!
