If you are having problems installing this package due to signature verification, please run the below before running makepkg:

gpg --recv-keys --keyserver hkp:// 1EB2638FF56C0C53

If makepkg still complains after this:

1) Ensure you're using makepkg, and not some wrapper.
2) Ensure you don't have GNUPGHOME set in /etc/makepkg.conf or ~/.makepkg.conf, or that the value of GNUGPHOME in makepkg.conf matches that which you've run the above gpg command with.
3) Ensure that the tarball you downloaded matches the md5sums in the PKGBUILD.

If you have problems locating pod2man during the build, please figure out where your PATH is being overridden. /etc/profile.d/ from the perl package will ensure that pod2man is in your PATH.

Kindly do not do the following because of failures in source tarball verification:

1) Complain that the package is broken.
2) Mark the package out of date.

Due to the amount of spam I receive, I've been forced to disable notifications for this package.

That thingy won't work with the newest update.
Using a simple shell script to install pacaur on my containers.

Maybe I got some mistakes, but hopefully not.

@Athantor: pkg-config is in base-devel, and thus assumed to be installed. Please read the wiki about the AUR, the section Prerequisites in particular.

I think you should know, cower requires pkg-config for linker flags, but doesn't have a dependecy on it. Without pkg-config, cower doesn't link; errors out with lots of undefined references:

As I didn't have it installed:

athantor@athantor ~ $ pkg-config --libs libcurl libalpm yajl libarchive
bash: pkg-config: command not found
athantor@athantor ~ ✘ $

After (manually) installing pkg-config, cower links without problems.

I had to delete the gpg key all together before the import worked correctly for me:

gpg --delete-key "Dave Reisner"
gpg --recv-keys --keyserver hkp:// 1EB2638FF56C0C53
pacaur -Syu --noedit --noconfirm

Everything is running smoothly now. thanks falconindy

Error on line 21. It looks like this:
sed '/^$/q' cower.c >LICENSE

But it has to look like this:
sed '/^$/q' src/cower.c >LICENSE

liara commented on 2017-04-24 13:55

I think you forgot src in build, like
sed '/^$/q' src/cower.c >LICENSE
At least there failed for me.

PKGBUILD is out of sync with sources. cower.c is no longer in tarball root, but in src/ dir, this makes the license extraction step fail.

@troyengel: Thanks for the fix.
