The documentation is currently installed in /usr/share/doc/. There should probably be a new directory for this.

Is the /usr/bin/module executable missing after the latest update?

@snafu: then python should be listed as optdepend, don't you think?

added procps (to fix your build error) even so this package is required by base.

coreutils and sh are somehow fundamental in order to run linux and might be replaceable by busybox (as well as ps actually).

Last but not least I don't see the point of forcing the user to install python in order to use the optional Maybe he don't need the script on his minimal installation or maybe python is just a module load python away…

From Install: When installing from a distribution tarball, documentation is pre-built and scripts to configure Modules Tcl extension library and compatibility version builds are already generated. Thus no additional software is required.

--> So no python-sphinx, right?

Beside procps also coreutils (used in to get the current shell name) python (used in script that create module file template) and sh should got in depends

Moreover python-sphinx should go to makedepends to build docs.

Just procps will do.

is just missing procps-ng ?

According to <,_csh_automatic_modules_initialization>, there should be (c)sh include files in /etc/profile.d.

fix by makepkg --printsrcinfo

Although "pkgrel" changed to "2" in the latest commit:

The full package name still says "4.4.0-1". This causes warnings when I try to update the packages:

warning: env-modules: local (4.4.0-2) is newer than aur (4.4.0-1)

Update to 4.0.0 (merged with the TCL version, C Version for compatibility reasons) You might consider to migrate to env-modules-tcl. Login problem's are hopefully fixed.

I also ran into a problem where prevented me from logging in on GNOME. This is because BASH_VERSION is defined in sh, not just bash, but the bash_completions script is not valid sh. This caused gdm initialization to exit prematurely when it sourced My current workaround is to delete or comment out, and source the env-modules bash init file myself in my bashrc. I'm sure there's a better way, though.

It looks like dejagnu is a build requirement. Without it, `check()` fails at `make -k check`, since it calls `./not_installed` when it doesn't find `runtest` in the PATH.
