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/

sb56637 commented on 2014-07-03 00:44

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.

File deb2targz is not a regular file -- refusing to patch

chepaz commented on 2012-04-06 11:07

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!
