FYI the latest builds are failing. The last good build I could find is e3d1ca, so do this for now:

1. If bumping the epoch isn't worth "it", I wonder how you manage to change $pkgver at all.
2. Probably nobody cares about epochs in AUR, especially for VCS packages.

@eworm, I'm afraid that would require bumping the epoch. Not sure that's worth it.

Any chance to get the last tag into the version string? Something like

git describe --tags | sed 's/-/./g'

would result in "".

@Brottweiler Thanks for reporting that! Looks like an upstream bug. I wrote a patch to fix this PKGBUILD, and sent them a pull request:

Please add Python to the makedepends, otherwise make fails with the following message:
scripts/ Affinity.c
make: scripts/ Command not found
make: *** [Affinity.h] Error 127

If you want "Memory[Bar]" to display the value of used memory as (used+buffers+cache) instead of merely (used), apply this minimal patch that I've written (against r288):

Use the tarball and add below line 33 ("cd $srcdir/htop/") in the PKGBUILD eg "patch -Np0 -i ${srcdir}/<name you gave it>". Its checksum needs to be added, too.

The patch simply sets the value before (buffers+cache) gets subtracted, ie no 'actual' code change.

I've submitted a feature request to make this a proper option:
