No, it really isn't bad practice. It is bad practice to fail hard because you have a tightly interwoven dependency on makepkg internals (and the format that is absolutely, positively, guaranteedly documented, since I wrote the documentation). Given I have actually discussed this with one of the lead developers of yay, and my advice to not be vulnerable to breaking for any reason, was accepted, I consider myself justified in adding this.

I did not break yay. I discovered that yay was already broken. I also guaranteed that yay-git now supports upcoming versions of pacman.

Furthermore, the official policy of the AUR is that if an AUR helper does not work, you should use makepkg directly, and if makepkg itself does work, then the problem is automatically with the AUR helper and only the AUR helper.

I am not changing this, and it is not open for debate.

I am indeed running an unreleased version of pacman/makepkg, and I'm also the one who added b2sums to pacman in git master (and the pacman-git package I maintain). :p

It's not a problem for old versions of makepkg, as old versions will ignore b2sums and rely exclusively on sha256sums (all you need is at least one valid algorithm) -- you won't get the advantage of collision resistance with multiple algorithms including an SHA-3 contender, but SHA-2 is still pretty good even without using two algorithms for redundancy.

Added: Whether an AUR helper (that I do not test) can correctly handle this does not bother me, since makepkg (the gold standard which I use to test) handles it just fine.

Are you running an unreleased version of pacman/makepkg? I don't think b2sums is available yet.

For some reason, with this package installed, when activating the copy password functionality in Firefox (about page said binary component is installed), it would hang my browser for multiple minutes, and not copy the password. After removing the package (about page said binary component is removed, but copy password still shows), the functionality behaves as normal.

Looks like a new version was released on Dec. 13. Current version for Firefox is Chrome is at 4.21.0.

Can this url set things back on track? It will install version in firefox. Seems to be the last... I rather have a working PKGBUILD of an old version than nothing at all.

That is /usr/lib/lastpass/nplastpass which is activated by /usr/lib/mozilla/native-messaging-hosts/com.lastpass.nplastpass.json I install both, and the specified functionality works fine on my computer.


Okay... Apparently version is simply gone from the Firefox addons site, but I have no clue why. I could revert the last commit, but I'd also need to add an epoch. I do have this file cached locally...

It's not your fault of course because it's LastPass devs who are not providing those files as they should, but I just wanted to let you know.

more info about this problem can be found here:

Hmm, they just removed their own hosted copy in favor of downloading one from the Chrome webstore. Problem is, the only thing that crx is needed for, is the opera plugin, which is not contained in the chrome webstore version of the crx... which is logical because why was it ever there in the one hosted on

I'll note their linux download instructions and is therefore incorrect and not working.

I'm not really sure what the story is supposed to be here. But I don't use opera. So, I guess I will drop this, and use the new lplinux.tar.bz2 location for the chrome/firefox native messaging binary. Either that or someone who uses Opera can discuss with Lastpass support/tell me how to re-enable it.

Patricol commented on 2018-09-01 18:20 is a 404 for me.

Yeah, I don't usually see extensions pulled like that. :/

Updated again.

I've been moving things to nvchecker so I should see updates faster anyway.
