Updated. I added/removed some deps based on what namcap reported.

Updated PKGBUILD for 25.1, based on [extra]:

Is the "giflib extension" still needed?

Please update to 24.4-2 which fixes GPG 2.1 issues

While waiting for an updated PKGBUILD here, to build this you can:

- dowload the tarball
- copy the updated patch from the official package
- change the md5sums in the PKGBUILD
- build the package manually

It broke after giflib's update.

I've returned to official Arch Emacs. Orphaned.

Didn't notice until today, but the new giflib is already in [extra], which means the last update is for everyone now.

megadriver commented on 2013-07-31 19:29

This update is only for [testing] users, for now.

megadriver commented on 2013-04-08 18:22

Updated, thanks!

The build fails with the latest version of ImageMagick. The fix is to patch and regenerate configure.

Replaced emacs.install with the more complete one from emacs in [extra].

Adopted and updated!

Removed the gconf dependency and added some fixes to the info stuff from emacs-bzr.

favadi commented on 2013-01-23 16:39

New version come out!

popsch commented on 2012-11-12 18:58

The package has a duplicate:

1) /usr/share/applications/emacs.desktop
2) /usr/share/emacs/24.2/etc/emacs.desktop

You might want to make #1 a link to #2, so it's not confusing which one to edit.

Why does this require the gnulib-gets.patch while extra/emacs doesn't? Anyhow, seems to work great against (which just passed its 10th anniversary; they don't kid around when they call it a "long-standing bug"), I can now exit an ssh -X connection without emacs crashing :-)

@jpkotta: update.
