vim-runtime got 3 updates in the last 3 days. I've pushed a new version for 8.0.1826, hopefully it should be up-to-date now. Sorry for the trouble!!

@dmos: somehow I missed your comment about the armv7h architecture, should be fixed too now!!

vim-runtime version should be updated, currentlly I got:

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)

:: vim-x11: installing vim-runtime (8.0.1826-1) breaks dependency 'vim-runtime=8.0.1542-2'

Hi @Thrawn, please pull in these changes [0]. They add armv7h architecture support and increment _upstream_pkgrel, because the current vim-runtime version is 8.0.1542-2. These are separate commits.

@kuroneko: I've "adopted" this orphan package.
@Purgator: I had the same problem, so I've updated the PKGBUILD, hopefully it should be fixed now. Tell me if it works!

I have disowned this package since I no longer use Vim very much.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

I'm trying to install vim from aur, here is what I'm doing :

git clone
cd vim-x11
makepkg -s PKGBUILD

But I got the following error :

==> Making package: vim-x11 7.4.2334-1 (Thu Oct 6 15:02:28 CEST 2016)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...
==> Installing missing dependencies...
error: target not found: vim-runtime=7.4.2334-1
==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies.

Ok of course there is no vim-runtime=7.4.2334-1 in database but there is vim-runtime. Should I just edit by myself. I would like to understand cause it's very strange to me.

With regard to this package getting out of date:

I'll try to keep it up to date, but I cannot be monitoring it 24/7. Please mark this as out of date as needed.

In the meantime, you can edit the PKGBUILD and bump the version yourself. The relevant lines are "pkgver=" and "_upstream_pkgrel". This will work 99% of the time, but it is possible that Arch will make changes to the official vim-runtime that breaks this package.

Should be fixed now. Make sure to read

lordmocha commented on 2015-10-11 11:32

So how do i actually install this?

arch:~$ sudo aura -A vim-x11
aura >>= Determining dependencies...
aura >>= Dependency checking failed for these reasons:
The dependency `vim-runtime` demands version `=7.4.854-1`, but the most recent version is `7.4.884-1`.

kuroneko commented on 2015-05-22 02:20

Nope. At least two reasons:
1) The official Arch repository uses = and not >=
2) Can you guarantee that this package will work with vim-runtime 7.4.713? 7.4.720? 7.5? 8.0? If not, then = is better.
