Should be all good in 1.1.11

@baris-inandi: I just told you how to update the checksums automatically in my last comment.

Remove the tar xvf fe-$pkgver.tar.gz from your build() function, the tarball is automatically extracted running makepkg.

Also is there any way to change sha256 sums automatically?

@yochananmarqos How does it look now?

Oh wait, sorry. I forgot this actually isn't a VCS package. This should be using the release tarball. A VCS package would be called fe-git.

Remove the pkgver() function, manually change the pkgver() array to 1.1.6, use the release tarball and clear the value for the md5sums() array:


Run updpkgsums or makepkg -g to generate the checksums.

@baris-inandi: That won't work:

==> Starting pkgver()...
==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to contain colons, forward slashes, hyphens or whitespace.
==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version: 1.1.6-0-g79e0155

Use the following and remove your prepare() function:

pkgver() {
    cd "$pkgname"
    git describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

Which generates:


Run makepkg -od and you'll see the pkgver is generated.

You do not need to bump the pkgver at all since this is a VCS package. It will always pull from the latest commit and generate the pkgver.

Should I manually bump that manually even if there is a pkgver()?
