Hi there, stumbled upon this while looking for a lightweight browser for an rpi. This looks even cooler than luakit, so I pushed it to [community]. Thanks a lot for maintaining it until now! I'll be deleting the AUR package soon :)

==> Starting prepare()... /home/mox/.cache/pacaur/vimb/PKGBUILD: line 26: ../../0001-Makefile-fix-compilation-if-source-is-not-in-a-git-r.patch: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

So, could you please change line 26 from

  patch -Np1 < ../../0001-Makefile-fix-compilation-if-source-is-not-in-a-git-r.patch


  patch -Np1 < ../0001-Makefile-fix-compilation-if-source-is-not-in-a-git-r.patch

Thanks a lot for pointing that out greencopper. Fixed in 3.3.0-2

Installing pkgconf fixes the problem below.

Build fails, currently, with a number of 'undefined references'.

Thank you, bidulock. It is my understanding that hardening-wrapper is to be used when compiling C

bidulock commented on 2015-07-16 03:14

Neither libsoup nor hardening-wrapper are necessary. See

This package contains an ELF file and cannot have arch=(any). Please change to arch=(i686 x86_64).
