Hey @ZTF--

Make is part of the base-devel group (

It is assumed that if you are installing a package from the AUR, you have base-devel on your system (

Because of this, many build dependencies (make, sed, gcc) are not listed as dependencies in pkgbuilds (

build depends on make, so makedepends=('make') could be specified

Thank you for updating it.

I can't really say too why it's the case, w/o building a package make clean build works fine. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Interesting. I can't understand why chaining Make targets would cause this build to fail; I can only assume something else is going on in the background.

Either way, if this fixes the issue that two people have now reported, I can't see a reason not to include it.

@rew1red Here's some patch necessary for the PKGBUILD, that will improve immutability:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 091f1ab..cbe70c8 100644
@@ -10,7 +10,7 @@ url=''
 depends=('git' 'gnupg')
-        "${pkgname}-${pkgver}::${pkgver}.tar.gz")
+        "${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz::${pkgver}.tar.gz")

Besides that, your build is not stable. Here I have some experiment done:

$ for i in {1..30}; do makepkg -f >/dev/null && echo >> success || echo >> failed; done
    LICENSE ... Passed
    git-secret-0.4.0.tar.gz ... Passed
    LICENSE ... Passed
    git-secret-0.4.0.tar.gz ... Passed

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

    git-secret-0.4.0.tar.gz ... Passed

..... repeat

$ wc failed success
15  0 15 failed
15  0 15 success
30  0 30 total

So, please, separate clean and build to different commands.

upd: it looks like package is failed each second time

@Pantelis - Can you elaborate on your suggestion? Chaining make targets runs them each in order, so functionally there should be no difference.

With that said, I can't reproduce your build failure. Can you provide more context about where in the build you encountered the failure?

Pantelis commented on 2021-05-12 10:38 (UTC)

build fails with message:

install: cannot stat 'git-secret': No such file or directory

Fix. Edit PKGBUILD from:

    cd "$srcdir/git-secret-${pkgver}"
    make clean build


    cd "$srcdir/git-secret-${pkgver}"
    make clean
    make build

It seems they've removed git-secret.plugin.zsh for this release:

This causes an error on line:

Solution should be to just remove the line.

@itunali Works now, thank you :)

itunali commented on 2018-09-25 06:51 (UTC)

@malet, my PKGBUILD uses "git" for to fetch source files. Also you can fetch .tar.gz as in your PKGBUILD.

I bumped to 0.2.4 with successfully. What is the error you got?
