Hello xx55tt,

sorry for the awfully late reply. I somehow missed the mail in my inbox.

I updated the dependencies. But I'm not that happy removing the script. If the repository somewhen starts to live up again, that maybe makes additional problems.

I doubt that I'm gonna use it regularly and I'm not really interested in maintaining it either.

There are still some issues left, so I've written a PKGBUILD from scratch. It uses the Makefile directly instead of the shell script. This means that the two patches and wget are no longer required to build the package. I've also added the missing dependencies. Feel free to use it:

Thanks again @xx55tt. I fixed it.

It seems that you want to actively use that packet. I only used it once in the past and never again. Should I add you as co-maintainer so that you can make the changes directly?

Thanks for the quick fix. However, I've run into an another issue. You are using git am to apply the patches.

There are two problems with this approach:

  1. git am will commit the patches to the local repository, so pkgver() always returns the commit hash of the last patch. It should return the last commit hash from the upstream repository.

  2. In a clean chroot there is no git configuration (name and email are not set), so git am fails to commit the patches causing makepkg to abort the building process.

Please replace git am with patch -p1 < "${srcdir}/...". With this change pkgver() will return the correct version string. (r58.3e0cc40)

Thanks @xx55tt for the hint. I added the makedepends.

xx55tt commented on 2020-08-12 17:43

makedepends=('git') is missing from the PKGBUILD, it's not possible to build this package in a clean chroot.

Thanks @svenschwermer for the patch. I applied it. But maybe you want to create a pull request for the original repository too:

This fails to build with gcc 10, here's a patch:
