IMPORTANT: This package always installs the latest insider build (see pkgver() function), so if you want daily updates, just run "makepkg -si" everyday and it will update. I won't be updating pkgver every single day.

Hmm, you're right it looks like pacaur only handles pkgver() properly if the package has a VCS suffix. Sorry for the noise.

No, I didn't forget to push and you can see that yourself here. Just compare pkgver in the PKGBUILD and .SRCINFO, they are the same.

Are you using an AUR helper? What could be happenning is that your AUR helper is running the pkgver() function but then comparing the result of that to .SRCINFO which obviously won't match. In that case, you can simply download the tarball, extract it and install with makepkg -si.

hey @dcelasun, I started from scratch with a clean build dir and I still get the same message. I also run mksrcinfo and I see there is a version mismatch. Maybe you forgot to push?

dcelasun commented on 2018-08-07 16:26

Do you have a clean build directory? Because the versions in the latest commit do match.

:: visual-studio-code-insiders package(s) failed to install.
:: ensure package version does not mismatch between .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD
:: ensure package name has a VCS suffix if this is a devel package

Dependencies of gtk2 is outdated. As you can see, VSCode shifted from gtk2 to gtk3.

Fixed, thanks.

VSCode has changed their tarball naming scheme and removed the _amd64 suffix from the 64-bit builds. I have not checked the 32-bit builds but I'd suspect the same thing has happened there.

The result of this change is that the updated package version ends up being something like <NUMBERS>.tar.gz-1 when it should be <NUMBERS>-1.

Ok... I downloaded via packer-color -S visual-studio-code-insiders -G and it's working now...
