Delete the following:
cd "${srcdir}/${_gitname}/"

from:
build() {

cd "${srcdir}/${_gitname}/"

_update_git

}

and it installs the newest version just fine

It doesn't work at all:

==> Starting build()...
/home/sources/bios/biosdisk-git/PKGBUILD: line 61: cd: /home/sources/bios/biosdisk-git/src/biosdisk/: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Aborting...

Seems it must clone repo before duing anything else because git remote needs a working repo to work.

PKGBUILD cleaned up. Thanks @Inxsible.

Inxsible commented on 2012-02-19 02:08

Done. I haven't used it in a long time anyway.

@Inxsible: I will maintain this package if you orphan it.

Hi Inxsible. You really shouldn't just run the installer in your PKGBUILD because then biosdisk ins't actually packaged. Instead you should extract the installer and place everything into $pkgdir in the right place.

This package is poorly done and does not follow any of the standard conventions used by arch.

This package should actually pull from the biosdisk git repo http://linux.dell.com/git/?p=biosdisk.git;a=summary and not use a tarball.
