Can we add more man pages?

Build is failing after this commit with:

install: cannot stat 'extra/': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_alacritty-git().

Temporarily fixed by commenting out the install line for

If you are seeing errors

invalid data in index - calculated checksum does not match expected; class=Index (10), 

The fix is to run

git config --local index.skipHash false

in the source checkout. This appears to be a bug in libgit2 that is only relevant with git 2.24 and if particular options are set by the user.

Now fails due to Git having a stale Cargo.lock:

==> Starting build()...
error: the lock file /home/chris/Source/AUR/alacritty-git/src/alacritty/Cargo.lock needs to be updated but --locked was passed to prevent this
If you want to try to generate the lock file without accessing the network, remove the --locked flag and use --offline instead.

If you get the following error:

==> Starting package_alacritty-git()...
install: cannot stat 'extra/linux/io.alacritty.Alacritty.appdata.xml': No such file or directory

You can modify PKGBUILD like so:

Hi quininer,

As abhinav mentions below this works just fine on ARM64, so the "aarch64" architecture can be added to the PKGBUILD file.

For me however the tests are failing when installing this AUR package, so I have to use --nocheck. If you remove the "--release" argument from the "cargo test" command then it appears to work just fine.

It would be amazing if these small changes could be incorporated so that it works out of box on ARM64 machines!

Regards, Aaron

polyzen commented on 2021-10-04 17:40 (UTC)

You can just use the --nocheck option for makepkg.

itachi commented on 2021-10-04 13:26 (UTC)

can you please remove test for alacritty-git? as it is really annoying and resource hungry.

abhinav commented on 2021-09-17 04:07 (UTC)

Hey, I've got two patches in

One adds libxkbcommon to makedepends. This is necessary to build the package.

The second adds the .png icon to /usr/share/pixmaps so that ChromeOS (with Crostini) renders the correct icon.

abhinav commented on 2021-09-03 04:42 (UTC)

FYI, this worked for me on an ARM64 Linux machine after installing libxkbcommon, so the list of architectures can probably include aarch64 as well.
