@martti: thanks, implemented now. i was not even aware of the patch beeing unavailable…

mar77i commented on 2016-09-27 09:26

New patch URL, since gentoo turned off their CVS server:
https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/plain/app-arch/deb2targz/files/deb2targz-any-data.patch

However as Gentoo people informed me, even this new link is not officially documented and technically may change any time, so why don't you put the patch into the package itself and host it on AUR?

miketaylor.org.uk seems to be down for the last couple of days now. Can't install my printer now.

I don't know what they are doing at gentoo ;) This is the patchfile: https://paste.xinu.at/LkyW/

At the moment this won't build because sources.gentoo.org has currently been down for about 12 hours.

elifarley: Look in the PKGBUILD, there isn't a package downloaded with a name like you posted. Deb2targz builds fine here.

Just tried it but received this error message:

error: missing package metadata in /Downloads/yandex-disk_latest_amd64.tar.gz
error: '/Downloads/yandex-disk_latest_amd64.tar.gz': invalid or corrupted package

chepaz commented on 2013-09-19 18:39

package() adapted.

hav3lock commented on 2013-09-05 22:37

please update your PKGBUILD to use `package ()'

chepaz commented on 2012-11-14 17:28

Done. Worked here without --follow-symlinks. Anyway, updated :)

spirtbrat commented on 2012-11-14 08:31

Cannot patch since the sources in the $srcdir are symlinks to the real source files.
Should be patched with --follow-symlinks and $srcdir/deb2targz should be used instead of ../deb2targz.
Here is an updated PKGBUILD:

https://raw.github.com/gist/4070985/4eef4442393a1d0b514f060bf61f6a4b3f232148/PKGBUILD

chepaz commented on 2012-11-01 08:58

Done. Thanks!

liganic commented on 2012-10-25 18:34

Can you please fix the PKGBUILD by using the normal source array and not calling wget yourself?
Corrected PKGBUILD here: http://pastebin.com/aSv7NW6F

chepaz commented on 2012-10-23 07:08

This is not a bug in the PKGBUILD. It works fine here.

The package cannot be installed: curl: (7) couldn't connect to host

chepaz commented on 2012-10-09 18:00

Don't know if this is the clean way of fixing the patch problem but it should work now.

chepaz commented on 2012-04-06 07:21

Well, i've to write it this way, 'deb2targz' only doesn't work for me. And it IS an pearl script btw. Possibly it depends on the shell? I'm using zsh.

Edit#1: Ok, sorry. Got you wrong. Yes, the .pl at the bottom could possibly be removed.
Edit#2: Fixed.

pezzacolori commented on 2012-04-05 21:47

is it correct to have the ".pl" at the end of the script (which I guess stands for perl script) ?
On my machine I have then to call deb2targz.pl to execute it .... and there are other packages around which use simply deb2targz ...

pezzacolori commented on 2012-04-05 21:41

I guess the ".pl" at the end of the PKGBUILD an error. Or not?

pezzacolori commented on 2012-04-05 21:38

is the ".pl" at the end of the last code line an error?

chepaz commented on 2012-03-25 15:50

Even the Dev from deb2targz is undecided in his work :-P So let's use it as long ar can't unpack in directorys!

mbostwick commented on 2012-03-05 03:31

if you read http://www.miketaylor.org.uk/tech/deb/ you can clearly see that using this package is a bad idea!
