Updating to breaks windowmaker (

Essentially, my windowmaker was looking for some libMagick*.so.5 libraries that no longer existed. Re-installing windowmaker after updating to fixed the problem.

Also didn't have any problem updating to

@japp1egate You're welcome. Please post some feedback if you can successfully build it in a clean chroot.

@dbermond - Thank you very much. I really do appreciate your help.

@japp1egate You can view the Wiki article:

Basically, in this case you need to use the command extra-x86_64-build. Use it with makechrootpkg -I options (after --) to provide the needed AUR package dependencies.

Wow. That makes little-to-no sense to me. I know I haven't set DESTDIR or pkgdir to anything myself. Can you point me in the right direction for instructions to set up a clean chroot environment? No need for hand-holding or anything. Just please point me in the right direction. :)

@japp1egate Your perl files are being installed to ${pkgdir}/home/japple/perl5/lib/perl5/ instead of ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/perl5/. I don't know why.

Sorry, but I have no solution for this. You're the first one to raise this issue here. Make sure that you don't have the environment variables DESTDIR and pkgdir setted elsewhere.

As a final attempt, you can try to build in a chroot by using devtools. It should work since it will build in an isolated environment.

@japp1egate Can you please post a complete output? Use a pastebin service and post the link here.

Thank you for the helpful advice. I completely removed my previous source directory, followed the instructions you provided, and came to the exact same result.

mv: cannot stat '/home/japple/src/imagemagick-full/pkg/libmagick-full/usr/lib/perl5': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_libmagick-full(). Aborting...

I recognize and understand that you are not able to reproduce the error on your side, but by looking at the issue I'm having, are you able to make a determination as to what's actually broken and offer some advice on how to fix it?

@japp1egate It seems that you're doing it in the wrong way. You do not need to extract the contents of the ImageMagick source tarball because it's done by makepkg. You're not supposed to copy the .diff file because it comes along with this AUR package.

Try to build using exactly these commands somewhere inside your home folder (after installing the AUR dependencies):

$ git clone
$ cd imagemagick-full
$ makepkg -ris
