Works just fine for me. And since I do not speak Italian and Yaourt is an unsupported tool, there is nothing I can do to help.

Right. This option used to be called unstable and was enabled in the PKGBUILD; I've updated it to the new naming.

This needs `experimental=true` added so that besside-ng and others are built & installed.

These are the guidelines:

vesath commented on 2013-10-23 01:02

Alright, I'll use `svn info | awk '/Revision/{r=$2}/Date/{gsub(/-/,"");d=$4}END{print d"."r}'`.

vesath commented on 2013-10-23 00:53

I am not aware of any guidelines. We could drop the date but what I'd like to do is, as I already do for git packages, use the date of the last commit (instead of the build date). I'll see if I can figure out how to do that easily in SVN and use your suggestion otherwise.

intelfx commented on 2013-10-21 13:38

Maybe pkgver() can be changed to use only `svnversion` and epoch=1? It's pretty annoying to rebuild the package every day... After all, guidelines say so :)

not sure what it is, but i couldn't connect to the svn to complete the build, but downloaded the 1.2 beta and built from source, using aur would have been so much smoother lol

svn: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

arielp: Thanks for letting me know about the repo move. As for having the date in the pkgver, it's indeed of debatable relevance with SVN, but I grew used to it, and it makes sense to have pkgver's which look alike for all development PKGBUILD.

arielp commented on 2013-05-21 17:15

Also, is the date really necessary in the pkgver()? svnversion(1) will increment with each commit, correct?

arielp commented on 2013-05-21 17:11

It looks like they changed SVN servers.

bkg: Thanks for noticing. I've also moved everything to /usr/bin like we are currently doing for official packages.

bkg commented on 2013-05-17 04:29

Some manpages are installed to the /usr/local prefix. Please update the package function to set /usr as the prefix which also allows removing the dir specific overrides, thanks!

package() {
cd "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}"
make DESTDIR=${pkgdir} prefix=/usr SQLITE=true unstable=true install

xcabal commented on 2013-04-06 02:57

im getting a strange result when trying to install aircrack-ng-svn pacman says the change is negative 1.2mb and that's the size of the package and when i opened the compress archive there were only two files there named .PKGINFO and .MTREE nothing else. i did not change anything in the pkgbuild. any one got an idea whats wrong?

mehine2 commented on 2012-06-23 17:42

copy and paste the previous message into a textfile "PKGBUILD"

makepkg -s

sudo pacman -U *.xz

WORKED 4 ME, with the next relase needto keep up with the nr's

There is no new repository on github, just some very old repository.
Why died?

dlin commented on 2012-06-12 00:53

You could try search it on github, somebody may have older version on there.

SuperBo commented on 2012-06-11 23:16

Hey, can you access I can't access it and it down. Why?

techlive commented on 2012-02-15 05:24

There is another aircrack-ng-unstable-svn PKGBUILD in AUR,maybe you can consider adopt it. Or,please use UNSTABLE=true while compiling and remove aircrack-ng-unstable-svn from AUR.The aircrack-ng in community also use UNSTABLE=true.


jstjohn commented on 2011-12-13 02:24

I just ran `makepkg -s`, and it built a package for SVN revision 2011, so you're right! Good to know. I wasn't aware that there was any latest SVN revision checking before the checkout.


ptchinster commented on 2011-12-13 01:22

It is updated when you run makepkg.

==> Finished making: aircrack-ng-svn 2011-1

And that was with that PKGBUILD. Try it for yourself. Open up the PKGBUILD after only running makepkg -o. svn and git packages are only really updated when something changes in build (like a custom patch or something) or a dep is added/removed.

jstjohn commented on 2011-12-13 01:18

The "-r $pkgver" in the PKGBUILD will still check out an old revision. The latest SVN revision for aircrack-ng is 2011.

ptchinster commented on 2011-12-13 00:43

Their SVN server appears to be down. The address in the PKGBUILD is still correct, as found on their website.

ptchinster commented on 2010-11-20 15:34

Adopted and fixed!

ptchinster commented on 2010-11-20 15:29

Adopted and fixed!
