I decided to try it out for myself, and the same thing is happening to me. I’m not really sure why it’s happening, but my guess is that it has something to do with makepkg. I’ve tried building the AUR package depot-tools-git and I ran into the same problem, but cloning the repository by hand works fine.

I’ll just leave this pinned until the problem goes away: if the package is hanging when downloading depot_tools, run git clone --bare depot_tools and rerun makepkg.

@Wrexes Have you tried building the package in a chroot, with makepkg directly instead of yay? The package builds fine for me, and I evidently don’t have ninja installed with pip (running pip show ninja says that the package is not found).

When installing/updating this package with YAY, I kept getting an error about ninja being an unsatisfied dependency. To be precise I had a traceback from python saying "No module named ninja" even though it is part of the dependencies. Installing ninja via pip install --user ninja seems to have fixed the issue.

@rouhannb, yeah my bad. thanks!

@osc You did clone the whole repository, right? You can check the “Sources” list; aseprite.desktop is there.

osc commented on 2021-01-06 17:14

I am getting this error...

==> ERROR: aseprite.desktop was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

@ISSOtm I don’t think that’s the problem. The tarballs are not part of the git repo, they’re downloaded just like any other source. However, the MD5s seem to be completely different each time they are downloaded.

EDIT: It was the timestamps. These tarballs seem to be generated on the fly, and each file is given a modify time of when the request was made, so they’ll be different every time. For now, I think I’ll just set all the tarballs’ checksums to SKIP, but I’ll try to see if there’s some way to perform a checksum on the file contents, not the metadata.

EDIT 2: The checksums are now all SKIP, so there should be no more problems.

ISSOtm commented on 2020-11-17 13:19

The .gitignore is set to ignore the tarballs, so git pull doesn't fetch them. makepkg finds the MD5s invalid, and aborts.

I’ll see if I can replace some of them with non-VCS dependencies, but as far as I know I can’t remove any of them.

EDIT: All the git dependencies, save for skia and depot_tools, are now tarballs.

treeshateorcs commented on 2020-11-13 10:20

it pulls an insane amount of dependencies from git

Is that all there is? Please post the entire log in a pastebin because I can’t exactly tell what’s going on here.

I have just built this package in a chroot, and it never gave an error like this one. Have you tried the same, or built Aseprite manually, and does it give the same error?
