@carlosnewmusic: that is a bug in a backintime test. It happens after an empty crontab is saved:

$ crontab -e

Save an empty crontab.

$ crontab -l | wc -l

check() is fine for me, with the latest 1.1.12.r449.gba37b1e7-1, using makepkg. I do get some warnings, but no error.

As per my previous comment, I think @willemw can remove the out-of-date flag.

I think pkgver is fine. It's pulling from the master branch, which is correct. The problem is that the stable release 1.1.24 is on a separate branch series1.1, presumably because upstream are rolling hotfixes into older versions without upgrading the stable with all the newer features.

I think @willemw's advice is right though; just reinstall. It doesn't make sense to upgrade the epoch, for example, because the previous tag on the master is 1.1.12.

@uffe: There is an issue with pkgver(). It's not getting the latest tag anymore.

You can reinstall all your backintime*-git packages to upgrade to the latest commit. This is independent from version number generated by pkgver().

Hello I'm trying to get away from the aur/backintime package as it uses qt4 - Hence I would like to use this package (aur/backintime-git) - because of its qt5 dependency. But this package is at version 1.1.12 is behind the aur/backintime package (1.1.24). And I do not really like the idea of downgrading to an older version of backintime - risking the integrity my existing backups. Are there any plans to get this package up to 1.1.24 ? Thanks

@Jino: Building this package with makepkg (in a clean chroot) and don't see this error. Are you using an AUR helper? Try building in a clean chroot environment or directly with makepkg.

'gocryptfs' is not a dependency. Will remove those comments. 'python-pyqt5' is already in 'depends'. No need to declare it in 'checkdepends'.

Jino commented on 2018-11-05 13:59

I am experiencing an error when building:

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'PyQt5'

I see the line


to be commented. Shouldn´ t this line beeing uncommented and 'python-pyqt5' to be added as checkdepend?
