@DaMastah: Thanks, sorry for that.

@aaronfischer : Spyhawk said on a package with a similar error : "Please always update the PKGBUILD, and generate the .SRCINFO file with "makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO"."

It would be great if you could do that.

When trying to install the package i get the following error

:: wakeonlan package(s) failed to install. Check .SRCINFO for mismatching data with PKGBUILD.

i think on the last update you forgot to make a new .SRCINFO with mksrcinfo

The download is broken (again or still, I do not know).
I just get this error:
curl: (9) Server denied you to change to the given directory

I've adopted the package and fixed the download, should work now.

At the moment the server where the package is stored is down, and therefore its not possible to install wakeonlan..

A couple of suggestions to tidy this up:

* No need to duplicate entries in "depends" and "makedepends".
* Perl is already in the base group, so no need to specify it at all :)
* "arch" can be "any", because all the installed code is interpreted, not compiled.
* It would look a little nicer if the functions were indented...

This pkgbuild worked for me:

# Contributor: Hyperair <>
pkgdesc="Utility for waking up computers using UDP Wake-on-Lan packets"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

build() {
cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver
perl Makefile.PL || return 1
make || return 1

package() {
cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver
install -D -m0755 ${pkgname} $pkgdir/usr/bin/${pkgname} || return 1
install -D -m0644 blib/man1/${pkgname}.1p $pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1p/${pkgname}.1p || return 1
find examples -exec install -D -m0644 '{}' $pkgdir/usr/share/doc/${pkgname}/\{\} \; || return 1

please replace $startdir/pkg with $pkgdir, $startdir/src with $srcdir, and create a package function. The current PKGBUILD creates an empty package with pacman-4.1.
