I, for one, would prefer to have a jed-snapshot package that is built from the official snapshots. I'm not interested in a traditional jed-git package.

Would you consider modifying this PKGBUILD to pull straight from the upstream git repo?

I have done a "quick and dirty" version locally. If there is interest, maybe we can cooperate on morphing this into a jed-git PKBUILD?

@prk21: fixed @csts: no, this is quite normal for a split package.

This package is listed as rgrep An error maybe?

When I run makepkg, jed-snapshot fails to build due to the following missing dependencies: gpm, slang, and libxft.

If I manually install these dependencies, then makepkg succeeds.

I recommend adding a global depends= to your PKGBUILD file.

Excerpt from man PKGBUILD(5):

Note that makepkg does not consider split package depends when checking if dependencies are installed before package building and with --syncdeps. All packages required to make the package are required to be specified in the global depends and makedepends arrays.

Please add support for 'armv7h'.

Should be fixed in -3.

I get the following error while attempting to build

==> Starting prepare()...
sed: can't read src/Makefile: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

I cleared the whole thing and built from scratch, and now xjed is included. I should have done that from the beginning – I'm sorry for having wasted your time. I had built jed-git so many times before, I didn't expect anything to have gone wrong.

Not in the package I built:

$ pacman --query --list jed-snapshot
jed-snapshot /usr/bin/
jed-snapshot /usr/bin/jed
jed-snapshot /usr/bin/jed-script
jed-snapshot /usr/bin/rgrep
$ pacman --query --owns /usr/bin/xjed
error: No package owns /usr/bin/xjed

So either something went wrong here, or the /usr/bin/xjed found on your box is a copy from a previous installation.

xjed is built alright, but not included in the package.
