Pinning answers to two often raised questions.

About pkg-config: this is part of [base-devel group](https://www.archlinux.org/groups/x86_64/base-devel/), which [is expected to be installed on any system using the AUR](https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository#Installing_packages). So this is not a missing dependency.

About armv7h in arch array: [ArchLinux ARM is already providing cower for all arm archs](https://archlinuxarm.org/packages/armv7h/cower), and more generally any other arch being unsupported it’s your responsibility to modify the PKGBUILD to add yours. And no, 'any' is not the same as a list of specific archs, it means that the produced binary is arch-independent, which is rarely the case.

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

gpg --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://pgp.mit.edu 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/perlbin.sh 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2) Mark the package out of date.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.

@XenGi Please read ArchangeGabriel's stickied post, particularly the comment about armv7h and other architectures unsupported by Arch Linux.

Please add armv7h to arch list for raspberrypis. Compilation thorws a warning but works.

@ArchangeGabriel, sorry I wasn't paying attention to what page I was on.

@storrgie: this is not relevant to cower, only to pacaur.

storrgie commented on 2017-05-13 18:06

I'm increasingly seeing:

`rm: cannot remove '/run/user/0/pacaur.build.lck': Permission denied`

However, pacaur seems to work fine.

Mind, please read the previous comments on this. The same question has been asked and answered already. Short answer is no.

Mind commented on 2017-05-04 18:45

cower seems to build on other architectures besides x86_64, including armv7h (Raspberry Pi 2). Could you change the architecture to 'any' or include 'armv7h'?

Missing dependency in cower-17 against pkg-config. Without the compile throws lots of "missing symbol" errors against alpm, curl, and yajl. With pkg-config installed the build runs without problems.

@Lasp94, if you have curl try this:
curl "https://pgp.mit.edu/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x1EB2638FF56C0C53" -o - | gpg --import
