@JcNils that's quite an odd error ^^

Most of the terminfo files are provided by ncurses, which is required by so many packages that I'd just assume it's installed already, so my only idea would be that you've set an "unusual" $TERM for which no appropriate terminfo is installed (or $TERM is set by your terminal emulator by something unusual) and the appropriate terminfo is not installed as well (for some terminal emulators separate packages are available, eg. kitty-terminfo, termite-terminfo etc.)

That's something I'd look into first and see where that leads you :)

Hi, I am on Manjaro, and when I try to update or install it I get an error: could not find terminfo database.

env | grep TERM shows that the variable is there.

I wonder what is missing.

Full error:

Error running mach:


The error occurred in code that was called by the mach command. This is either
a bug in the called code itself or in the way that mach is calling it.
You can invoke |./mach busted| to check if this issue is already on file. If it
isn't, please use |./mach busted file build| to report it. If |./mach busted| is
misbehaving, you can also inspect the dependencies of bug 1543241.

If filing a bug, please include the full output of mach, including this error

The details of the failure are as follows:

btw: I've just discovered firedragon yesterday – looks great, and it's cool to see librewolf being adapted and customized! :)

You are totally right, it was an incorrectly cached patch. Sorry for the inconvenience.

lsf commented on 2021-03-26 18:10

@dr460nf1r3 can't reproduce that. If the checksums already fail, that indicates that your build system might use some cached files somewhere? (Only the unity-menubar.patch has changed (which isn't applied by default) but even that one applies cleanly for me when doing a fresh checkout of and running makepkg with the relevant line uncommented.)

Considering your logs show

Fetching origin
  -> Found megabar.patch
  -> Found remove_addons.patch
  -> Found context-menu.patch
  -> Found unity-menubar.patch
  -> Found mozilla-vpn-ad.patch

(and not downloading them) that might indeed be a possibility (as in: they're either cached somewhere or provided in a step that's not part of the logs, and something's going wrong at that point).

The PKGBUILD needs fixing, checksums dont match & a patch is failing to apply. Logs available here

@lsf yes, thanks, did that, had to rebuild again, but at least I'm ready for the next time :)

lsf commented on 2021-03-18 18:38

You probably just need to remove the unity-menubar.patch – I'd assume that file is just left over from a previous build and has changed in the meantime, so the checksums don't match anymore. It will get re-downloaded when you run makepkg again.

Considering rebuilding from scratch: You probably won't be able to avoid it. It might be possible to somehow get it to re-use some parts of the previous build… but I doubt it's feasible / doable for a production build like this.

An alternative would be to just use the prebuilt package instead ( if you don't need to build from source.

I was trying to upgrade to 86.0.1-1 from 86, but I'm getting next error. I'm using Manjaro. I don't want to rebuild from scratch, since it takes at least an hour for me. I'm new to Linux, please advise.
