the flux-git dependency doesn't seem to be needed (and the flux upstream repository at github seems also to be abandoned).

It looks like makepkg beavhiour changed after recent libalpm release. ${name} and ${pkgname} are see both as the value of ${pkgname}. I just renamed ${name} ${_name}, and it works fine now.

I needed to apply the following changes to be able to build in a clean chroot:

Files conflicts between directfb and directfb2, this only mean that package is an alternative to directfb that can be used by other pacakges that depend on directfb. It doesn't mean that it definitively replace it.

Please don't use replaces=(directfb) until directfb is removed from the AUR

Thanks, looks like behavior changed, updated the git source URL, works again.

Just a note that the PKGBUILD is broken.

The URL in pkgbuild is pointing to the website which causes a not found error during the download phase.

If you must keep URL pointed to the homepage instead of the repo, you must change the source to read "directfb2::git+" instead of "directfb2::git+${url}". This is because URL points to the homepage instead of the git repo, and when makepkg is run it expected to find git repo files in the location.

Thank you, fixed.

Upstream $url should be is for the source code, but at there is a dedicated website of the project.

Thanks for maintaining!
