FYI: This isn't my OC. Credits go to JLErvin for this wonderful little Window Manager.

This package has several issues that need to be corrected:

  • pkgbase ≠ pkgname. This blocks use of pkgbase berry from being used for a normal berry package. Solution: Convert this into a normal package. Create the -git package with the proper pkgbase/pkgname.

  • -git packages should have a pkgver function that uses git tag and commit info to build the version string, like 0.1.12.r2.gc665902-1.

  • Missing git in madedepends, required to build in clean chroot.
  • Missing provides/conflicts. So -git package can work as drop-in replacement for non-git package.
  • Unusual build/package organization.
  • Missing LICENSE file.

The following PKGBUILD will resolve the above issues for this package. It can be converted into a -git package by appending -git to pkgname. Test built in clean chroot, but I don't know how to use this program, so didn't do any further testing.

Please fix PKGBUILD. Must be :

source=( "git+https://github.com/JLErvin/berry.git" berry.desktop )

earlybird commented on 2022-01-29 09:40 (UTC)

can you add the man part of the build?

man berryc

is not working now

berry-git-git+3dc0a02-1 has the following error:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
berry-git: /usr/local/share/man exists in filesystem (owned by filesystem)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Wasn't this fixed at an earlier version?

Version berry-git+3872a74-1 fails to install for me with this error:

install: target '/home/plyons/.cache/yay/berry/pkg/berry-git/usr/share/applications/' is not a directory: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting... error making: berry (berry-git)

Here's a public gist that seems to fix it

FlashDaggerX, berry doesn't register in my display manager upon installation.

It looks like the line that installs the berry.desktop file got thrown out in the Updated to caf4f33 change a few months ago.

Man pages also seem to be broken, but I'm not sure what PKGBUILD change caused that.

Thanks for maintaining.

FlashDaggerX, thank you! It’s working now.

lottobingo, the issue should be fixed now.

My PKGBUILD was attempting to create another manpage directory, that's why the installation failed.

Installation fails with the following error message:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
berry-git: /usr/local/share/man exists in filesystem (owned by filesystem)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
