pactree is missing. Is it in pacman-contrib-git?

polyzen commented on 2016-10-11 12:39

contrib/ was removed from pacman. Please update the pkgbuild so a pacman-contrib package can be added.

Edit: Once there's a release, pacman-contrib will be available in the repos.

Please could we start patching /etc/pacman.conf to replace 'pacman' in the HoldPkg list with 'pacman-git'.

makepkg bails out with an error:

==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to contain colons, hyphens or whitespace.
==> ERROR: Could not download sources.

Can we remove the colon, please?

pkgver is invalid.

pacman-db-upgrade broke packages whose 'files' (file) contains %BACKUP%
for example %BACKUP% is right on the next line after %FILES% as if some kind of sorting happened. And this causes pacman -Qo and -Ql to not see any files and thus attempting to upgrade/downgrade those affected packages causes `exists in filesystem` for each file.
This happened after I upgraded from commit d9cf14ff1d69ac8834b84015c7971f55ce77645b
to commit(latest currently): 7ee01c86669327b2af63c8ed9390bcbf071cdac5

Ok someone(demize) just notified me of this:

but may be worth to know if someone else if about to update from this

that pacman-git bug is tracked here:

Looks like noextract option inside PKGBUILD prevents that file from being softlinked into ${srcdir} and thus the need to use ${SRCDEST} to access it.
As an example of this try chromium-dev package.
Tested with: Pacman v4.1.2-406-g3e19-dirty - libalpm v8.0.2
Without noextract it is symlinked, with noextract it isn't.

Pacman 4.1.0 in [testing] since today.

@maggie: I believe Allan was targeting the Easter weekend for 4.1's release but likely to [testing]. I took a stab at a PKGBUILD for pacman-git that will work with the current 4.0.3 series:

Dave - feel free to check my math :p
