@Askannz 43.0 version has resolved the problem for me. Thank you.

@grandchild not sure where that's coming from, I just copied the official PKGBUILD. Does it still happen with the new 43.0 version?

You're missing the 'd' at the end of the pkgver:

Maybe you have your local git configured somehow to output one less digit of the hash? Perhaps core.abbrev?

similar issue @yingyi

I appear to have a similar issue to yingyi . Manjaro package manager continues to prompt that there is a new version with the following error message : unable to lock database Failed to synchronize databases Failed to synchronize AUR database

@yingyi that's weird, the pkgver() function was copy-pasted from the official gdm package. I can't reproduce the issue either.

There seems to be a problem with the pkgver function of pkgbuild, which causes the packaged gdm-prime version number to not match the version number in the aur repository. When using yay to detect updates, it will always prompt a new version

I was encountering the slow shell login that some have mentioned, but found that switching from bash to zsh fixed the problem entirely!

The patch below of PKGBUILD works for me with gnome 42.0:
