Note to self/future maintainers, this software only provides official downloads for an old release. The package itself then tries to update itself using 'equinox'. To find out the real download url, I use this script get_download_info:


exec http -b \
    'Accept:application/json; q=1; version=1; charset=utf-8' \
    'Content-Type:application/json; charset=utf-8' \
    app_id=app_goVRodbMVm \
    arch=amd64 \
    channel=stable \
    current_sha256=1aaccea9c0668d97f19095636b2f4fca033fb8d9f7fc37241a013f4f1fa48bb3 \
    current_version=2.2.8 \
    goarm= \
    os=linux \
    target_version= \

You need to call it with the different architectures:

get_download_info arch=386
get_download_info arch=amd64
get_download_info arch=arm
get_download_info arch=arm64

I'm not sure why this was flagged out of date, as 1.7 is the latest upstream release. Please comment or email me before flagging in the future.

Hmm, it seems to work fine on my machine. Could you please email me the full log from the failed build? Thanks!

ps: my email is in first line of the PKGBUILD.

Github bounced me off of the source URL in the PKGBUILD. So I dropped the tag specifier and changed the URL scheme to git+http. Then I checked the tag out in the build function.

I'm not sure whether the PKGBUILD didn't work because I have something set up wrong in my environment or it assumes something about the environment in which it's built that it shouldn't...

The build of this package fails if GOBIN is set in the shell that makepkg is running from.

Maybe this isn't a concern, but tools like yaourt fail to properly isolate environments.

codemac commented on 2014-08-19 18:48

The build of this package fails is GOBIN is set.

Just updated, built correctly. Thanks.

It's fine, I've got to look into why I'm not getting comment notifications. I wouldn't have seen your comment if you had not sent a request. Anyways, this should be an easy fix. For future reference, my PKGBUILDs[1] are on GitHub and I do take pull requests.

Hi neersighted. Sorry, I must seem a bit whiny and impatient.

neersighted commented on 2014-07-10 15:12

Also, FYI, two weeks[1] is the time since contacting the maintainer (assuming they are not on vacation) after which packages can be orphaned.


neersighted commented on 2014-07-10 15:07

I'm around, but somehow your comments hit my spam filter. I'll see what I can do today.
