@Ashark: I just realised their script copies the .desktop file to ~/.local/share/applications/; if that's the location you looked at, that file is completely wrong.

I'll update the package to delete that, and install the desktop file (and icon) to the standard locations (they were left in /opt/gfxbench/ until now)

I am not sure what exactly does this instruction in PKGBUILD:

sed -i "s#${pkgdir}##" "${pkgdir}"/opt/"${pkgname}"/gfxbench_gl.desktop

But I got incorrect path to executable in .desktop file:

/home/my_user_name/.cache/yay/gfxbench/pkg/gfxbench/opt/gfxbench/gfxbench_gl

@Plexcon: I'm not sure what your comment is about? This package provides the latest release; v5 is not out yet.

Ah, OK. I apologise for misinterpreting what happened.
And yes, that's exactly what I'm saying. Two new versions/revisions of the code without bumping the version.

There are still issues with RX 480 (after the second revision with the same version number) at the moment.
I hope that they get back to me this week. That would be the third change though.

I didn't remove the out-of-date flag, I updated the hash of the file (see the "view changes" link in the top right box). I did forget to bump the pkgrel though, I'll do that when I get home :)

Are you saying upstream changed the file without changing the version, again?

I see that the out-of-date flag was removed.
But attempts to install your package still fail.
Because they updated the .sh script without changing the name or version number.
If you want to leave it like this, that is OK by me. I'm installing it manually with the script.

Adding to my out of date flagging :

I just tried to be smart.
So I uninstalled the package and then reinstalled to pick up the fixed source.
But the validity checker slapped me (again).

OK, thanks for updating. (Also for the tip.)

Still not working for me.
So I contacted the developers and it is a bug. AMD RX 480 is not properly handled (yet).

1ace commented on 2016-10-26 20:11

Done.
FYI, the usual way to indicate that a new version is available is to click the "Flag package out-of-date" button in "Package Actions" ;)
