Now it's good with DreamChess 476.1769262-1 no notification to upgrade... ;=) Thanks

Ok, all this package does is pull the git repository and build it at the latest revision. the 'version number' is dynamically generated based on the pkgver() function in the pkgbuild. it appears that the git history of dreamchess has been changed, so now there are less commits in the history. This is not an issue with the package. To avoid confusion though, i'll update and push the latest version number in the pkgbuild anyway...

With the downloaded snapshot dreamchess-git.tar.gz from :

tar -xvf dreamchess-git.tar.gz

cd dreamchess-git

makepkg -si (in the folder where is the new PKGBUILD file)

Download give me now the dreamchess-git-476.1769262-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz file version and install also the 476.1769262-1 version of DreamChess...

It is the same with :

git clone

cd dreamchess-git

makepkg -si

474, 475, 476... we progress ;=)

@Armag67 ah sorry, I meant makepkg. See for the officially supported method of building and installing pkgbuilds from the aur.

No pkgbuild on Manjaro depository or AUR, but yaourt (that y used few years ago in Archlinux) install the 475.d1d5a19-1 version (always older then the 498.1c68b1e-1). I'm going to try with pkgbuilder... ;=)

Pkgbuilder as well install the 475.d1d5a19-1 version...

And now pamac-manager install also the 475.d1d5a19-1 version...

Same result with with pamac at cli...

@Armag67 please try building and installing the package using the officially supported tools (pkgbuild), and let us know if you run into issues. Otherwise, please take this up with the maintainers of pamac.

Hello, Using pamac-manager in Manjaro 18.0.4 Xfce 4.13, when y request the install of dreamchess-git 498.1c68b1e-1, the download build the 474.70d26c1 version and then pamac-manager notify me continually to upgrade to the 498.1c68b1e-1 version. I have seen in the /var/tmp/pamac-build-myname/dreamchess-git/ folder that the downloaded package is dreamchess-git-474.70d26c1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz. Is there a glitch in the packaging? Thanks for taking a look.

@idlusen thanks for reporting. Dependencies updated. :)

The package seems to be missing pugixml as a dependency.

Also, regarding the software itself this is the only game of chess I could find with keyboard controls.

Thanks for the reports! @kmartin haha don't thank me, I just packaged it. The devs are the ones who did all the work! ;)
