I'd be grateful for providing a i686 package.
Even with [haskell-core] building aura is annoying.

I'm getting these quite often while running aura:
aura: FailedConnectionException "" 443

Why's that?

@aliencam: That's just the AUR incorrectly parsing the PKGBUILD, not to worry :)

@FSMaxB: Thanks for those instructions. Luckily, Aura2 (in development) won't have this architecture restriction :)

@fosskers: It is possible to build i686 packages on a x86_64 system without the using a cross compiler. Just create a i686 container:

1. Create a copy of /etc/pacman.conf and change the architecture to i686 ( not auto )
2. Install the container using "pacstrap -d -C pacman.conf.copy /mnt/mycontainer_directory"
3. Boot into the container using "systemd-nspawn -bD /mnt/mycontainer_directory"
4. After logging in, change /etc/pacman.conf so that the architecture is once again "i686" instead of auto. It's important not to install any package before doing so.
5. Now you can use it just like a regular arch installation and build your packages inside it. If you want to stop the container, just shut it down with shutdown or systemctl poweroff.

I hope these instructions will allow you to build i686 packages.

looks like your source URL is wrong?

@fosskers gotcha. Waiting patiently until then.

@blinxwang: aura 1.3 is coming out soon with a new AUR interaction library, so that should fix these issues.

I'm getting the error message "AUR API lookup failed. Please check your connection.", but my internet connection is fine, and I've tested it on 3 different networks but it gives the same message. Furthermore, everything was fine before today. Did the AUR API change?

I myself don't know how to cross-compile, but apparently it's easier in recent versions of cabal. If you could figure out how that's done it would be a great help to many.
