When installing it will fail cause of missing edid-decode though.

I think that "smartmontools" should be a mandatory dependency. Is it possible to have it as non-optional but mandatory?

edid-decode and edid-decode-git are the same since in git package there is provides=('edid-decode'). You can notice that it is properly listed in Dependencies on AUR page.

@1ace: Correct me if I'm wrong, but your PKGBUILD explicitely 'depends' on 'edid-decode', yet no such package is available in AUR. In my opinion, you should modify your PKGBUILD to depend on 'edid-decode-git'. It may be convenient if yay does some magic here (trying to add '-git' to package names), but that's not how dependencies ought to work, right? ;)

WARNING: 'smartmontools' package is not installed

@abarbarian: looks like your AUR helper (pacaur) is unable to install dependencies, which is the same bug others reported on auracle and pikaur.
The same answer applies: you should report the bug to their devs, and/or use one that works (I use yay which works fine).

If you get " Missing dependencies: -> edid-decode" when trying to install. Just install "edid-decode-git" then hw-probe and you should be good to go ;-)
