Whilst mercurial 5.4 is out, I am holding off updating this package until tortoisehg is updated to the corresponding version.

Ah, actually the patch rendered fine in the notification email for your comment, so I have it. This works for me (assuming you name the patch url.patch):


prepare() {
  cd $_pkgname-$pkgver
  patch -p1 < "${srcdir}/url.patch"

@schnedan, can you put the patch on pastebin? It doesn't render properly here so it lacks whitespace and so is malformed. (if it lacked the whitespace originally, then that could be the problem!)

from a mercurial developer I received a patch to test, concerning a bug in a enviroment I am working in.
But I failed to integrate the patch with the PKGBUILD (following the discriptions of I get as far as to receive a message "patch failed". I also patched the sources manualy, so basicly it works. I think its cause by some path issues or such.

Can you please provide some help and tell me how to edit PKGBUILD that it works? Perhaps even the patch needs some editing... just guessing.

the patch is:
