Once source code is published, this package will build the binary instead of downloading it.

Just want to mention that there are 2 packages on this:

One of them handles different architectures better, but I like the dash in the name :P

If you comment out Line 10 and 22, it is possible to install this package together with p7zip.

This will remove the symlink of 7zz to 7z, so other programs (e.g. Ark) which calls /usr/bin/7z will still use p7zip, while you can test upstream alpha version by using 7zz in command line.

i think it should be made possible to install this package together with p7zip as this does not fully replace it.

@leapofazzam Not sure I did other arches correctly. Please check.

@leapofazzam your 7-zip-bin was legit and well made, there was no need to delete it

Please add i686 and arm:

@amatwkgs: That's a good point. It should only conflict with p7zip, not provide it.

amatwkgs commented on 2021-03-12 07:35

This package provides 7zz, while p7zip provides 7z, 7za and 7zr.

Even though this package links 7zz to 7z, it still cannot provide 7za and 7zr, therefore this package should NOT replace p7zip.

This should NOT replace p7zip as it is not an obsolete package. See PKGBUILD: replaces.

This should be renamed "7-zip-bin" then, if it's installing a binary.
