Please note that pacaur is targeted at *advanced users* only. You, user, are expected to be familiar with the manual build process as well as being knowledgeable about pacman, sudo and gpg configuration.
If you are not a makepkg wizard already, help yourself with the wiki and stay away from this helper!

* If you have problems locating pod2man during the build, please figure out where your PATH is being overridden. /etc/profile.d/ from the perl package will ensure that pod2man is in your PATH. (courtesy of falconindy).
* In case of a new major pacman release, you'll need to recompile cower against the new libalpm.

AND FOR GODS SAKE, do NOT ask questions to me. I'm not here to fix your freaking INCOMPETENCE.
And do NOT ask me to support your HIGHLY SPECIFIC user case that does NOT concern me. For paying support, see Paypal link in man page.

For people that actually read the man page and still believe they found a bug, follow the white rabbit:

I found my pacaur wasn't upto date via octopi. Needed to reinstall ca-certificates based packages to fix problem.

@chipmunkboogie> As above: check your PATH environment variable.

@bioshacker001> Could? Yes, definitely. But willing to? Hum, no, not really. I have no time to implement and maintain something I don't personally need, though I am 100% in favor of implementing this feature once the planned pacman -B (ABS merge in pacman) is eventually implemented.

@bioshacker001: You should rather ask on GitHub. I think they are already people doing what you do, using pacman hooks.

Hey, anyone think it would be possible to integrate ABS building into Pacaur? (I build almost my entire system from ABS, rather than the repos, to get the benefits of -march=native, so I'm wondering if I could automate the process.) I know the tool doesn't support it right now, but do you think it COULD? I don't want to learn an entire language (Perl) just to find out that what I want is impossible.

vendforce> Do as the error message says.

I'm getting the is error when installing applications from the aur

Check .SRCINFO for mismatching data with PKGBUILD.

Is there an issue with pacaur ?

@kyak: no, I don't think so. What happened yesterday/today is a very specific issue that concerns only a minor category of users, and that requires a very specific action to be solved.
