Hi @Ergus

nice, thanks. It might make sense to add 'common-lisp' and 'cl-asdf' as dependencies, too. I can adopt the package and take care of it.

Hi @fabi:

I made the change. I am not using cl-alexandria so I just adopted it temporally. If you find any issue you are free to share the patch and I will apply it; or adopt it if you prefer. Best, Ergus

could you please replace replaces=('cl-alexandria') with


Otherwise other packages don't recognize this package correctly (e.g. cl-bordeaux-threads). Furthermore this seems to be best practice, based on the guidlines

It looks like the alexandria maintainers changed the package structure upstream. I had to make the following diff to the PKGBUILD to get it to work

Hi. This package fails to build for me. After cloning the repository and changing to the package directory, I get:

Does anyone know how to fix?

There seems to be an issue with the official source.

I used the mirror at to get it to install.
