@Firestar :

The AUR is unsupported, so any packages you install are your responsibility to update, not pacman's. If packages in the official repositories are updated, you will need to rebuild any AUR packages that depend on those libraries.

(emphasis mine)

@Firestar, try to recompile ds9

Firestar commented on 2024-03-26 09:05 (UTC)

Cannot run ds9, it said that ICU is outdated:

$ ds9
ds9: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

and if I install icu73-bin from AUR it will say:

Error in startup script: couldn't read file "zipfs:/mntpt/library/ds9.tcl": no such file or directory

ds9-bin now correctly both provides and conflicts with ds9, so those two lines can be removed from this PKGBUILD.

Additionally, please rename the source file so that it is unique. See the warning at for details.

No need to have "ds9" in provides as packages provide themselves, also no need to have ds9-bin in conflicts, it's enough that ds9-bin conflicts with ds9.

@edombek Thanks. I don't know how it worked.

@Bkasthapa I have come across this error, try running makepkg again. If it doesn't work, I'll check later.

@edombek ERROR: A failure occurred in build()

I tried to update the package to 8.4.1, but there seems to be some issue with tcl and tk version and I have immediately reverted the change. I didn't bump the epoch as I feel it's unlikely that someone is building the package in that ~30min window. Hope that doesn't cause too much trouble. Sorry...
