Would you mind changing the source URL to git+ The anonymous git protocol (git://) is unauthenticated and unencrypted, enabling it to be MitM'd, while Git-over-HTTPS avoids that issue.

@be1 If can be helpfully In my case for raspberry pi4 I just added 'armv7h' on PKGBUILD file (arch=...) and works.

I have an 'aarch64' ARM machine. This pkg bulds well on it. Can you add the aarch64 arch ?

run namcap edid-decode-git-r465.01e7938-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst, namcap warns that:

edid-decode-git E: Dependency gcc-libs detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/bin/edid-decode'])

Seemd gcc-libs should be added to depends.

and another problem is about LICENSE , edid-decode.c should change to edid-decode.cpp

-  sed -n '1,/^$/p' edid-decode.c | head -n -2 > "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/LICENSE" 
+  sed -n '1,/^$/p' edid-decode.cpp | head -n -2 > "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/LICENSE"

Can anyone tell me why I can not get my serial number off my laptop screen with this ?? Instead of having the serial number it says:

Manufacturer-specified data, tag 0 Checksum: 0x29 (valid) EDID block does NOT conform to EDID 1.4! Missing name descriptor Missing monitor ranges Detailed block string not properly terminated

@biosin: Works fine for me. Your error message indicates that it is using https protocol when it should be using git protocol.

Edit: Was an error with my configuration, I commented out the following in ~/.gitconfig: [url "https://"] insteadOf = git:// Is this only an error on my side? Cloning into bare repository '/home/<user>/.cache/pacaur/edid-decode-git/edid-decode'... fatal: repository '' not found ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading edid-decode git repo

thanks! although, as a note, pacman treated the newest package as a downgrade (i got the warning `downgrading package edid-decode-git (20131230-1 => r111.afcf2a2-1`). since the version numbering scheme is different, and pacman is resorting to alphanumeric comparison. setting an epoch in the PKGBUILD would fix this, although in my case the manual 'downgrade' is perfectly fine.

Added git to makedepends and pkgver function to automatically update version according to

lxvk commented on 2014-03-14 23:48 (UTC)

i know it's already evident from the package title, but could you add git as a makedepends in the PKGBUILD so it can be built with makepkg -s or makepkg -sr ? also, i flagged this package as out of date, since there was an upstream commit on 2014-01-29. that commit only added a manpage, which the current package already contains, so now i'm not sure. my apologies for the potential error.
