It looks like the headers shipped by btrfs-progs have changed recently.
The git version ships them as a submodule, and the PyPI archive includes them as well; that should work better.

Build fails pretty badly here -

Sorry I wanted to comment on python-editor, not bedup.
Anyway I confirm that 0.10.1 fixed the build issue.

The error fryfrog reports is fixed in
I just pushed a point release with the fix.

Should one still use this? I tried to build it, but it fails.

Maybe gcc has had some big changes since this was last released by the source? :/

FYI, for pkgbuilds, anything in 'base-devel' is assumed to be installed. that includes gcc. See:
As for conflicts with th. e git version, the git version should have a conflicts and a provides for bedup (which is already there). see:

Yeah, bedup git totally builds and installs... I wonder where I went wrong, as looking over the PKGBUILD, mine looked pretty much the same. Now to see if it works... Thanks for that.

I guess I can agree that having gcc in the makedepends certainly doens't hurt anything, and I think the ability to run makepkg w/o gcc is as it should be probably.

I think the only thing with the git package is that it should have "conflicts=('bedup')" so that in the event that bedup is installed bedup-git will not error out with "file exists in filesystem".

Now I wish I handn't deleted the PKGBUILD I made off of yours so that I could compare the two. I woundn't be surprised if I just had some kind of typo in there. I guess when I think about it I really didn't put much time into debugging it.

> FYI, python-distribute is in the makedepends array, but it is actually required for bedup to run.

Right. Thanks. Fixed it.

> Also, I think that the 'gcc' makedepend is assumed in the case of AUR programs. I mean I know that not everything needs a C compiler, but I haven't noticed other AUR entries including 'gcc' as a makedep.

Ehm, I tried it, and actually makepkg can be run without having gcc installed. So I guess, any package containing C code should have a makedepends on gcc, no?

> Out of curiousity, is there any reason why you chose to use the pypi version 0.90 rather than makeing a bedup-git package?

I used it, because in the instructions at the github repo it was mentioned as one of the 'official' ways to build it. As the git repo does not seem to have a tag for a newer stable version and I wanted to have a stable one, I went for pypi.

> Are you familiar enough it its deps to make such a package? If so I would really appreciate it if you did that, as simply trying to convert this PKGBUILD to be a git type did not seem to work. Thoughts?

Okay, I now also created a bedup-git package. Didn't stumble over anything out of the ordinary. For me it seems to work. Maybe you can give it a try.
