Hi, could you add binutils to depends or optdepends? objcopy is needed since https://github.com/archlinux/mkinitcpio/pull/53

Also, official packages linux{,-hardened,-lts,-zen} now require initramfs instead of mkinitcpio [1]. Could you also add initramfs to provides?

Hi, could you change the source URL to https://github.com/archlinux/mkinitcpio or https://gitlab.archlinux.org/mkinitcpio/mkinitcpio? You know, projects.archlinux.org is gone [1].

By the way, the one on GitHub seems more up-to-date than the one on GitLab.

I'm new to the Arch scene and I'm not really sure how to file an issue. But there's a typo in /usr/lib/initcpio/hooks/encrypt where "parameter" is misspelled.

cat /usr/lib/initcpio/hooks/encrypt | grep paramater

I'm not sure if this is generated by mkinitcpio or another package. If I knew how, I'd make a pull request to change it. But a comment seems like the next best thing.

@eworm Thanks a lot!

@Eschwartz pkgname=mkinitcpio-git pkgver=23.r2.g91b2125 pkgrel=1 What's wrong there? I tried to temporarily fix it by editing PKGBUILD, but I'm not sure what happens.

eschwartz commented on 2017-08-28 18:51 (UTC)

This package cannot be installed as-is (and I don't believe it ever could), since it doesn't provide mkinitcpio=$pkgver-$pkgrel and every single kernel package in the repos throws a conflict e.g. :: linux: removing mkinitcpio breaks dependency 'mkinitcpio>=0.7'

pacman -U linux-drm-tip-git-r694381.5cd16b6da7da-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz linux-drm-tip-git-headers-r694381 .5cd16b6da7da-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz loading packages... resolving dependencies... looking for conflicting packages... :: mkinitcpio and mkinitcpio-git are in conflict. Remove mkinitcpio-git? [y/N] Why?

As already mentioned: `asciidoc` is missing in makedepends.

WonderWoofy commented on 2013-10-22 04:12 (UTC)

You need asciidoc in the makedepends.

Ok, just wanted to be in sync with mainline. ;) Removed and updated.

falconindy commented on 2012-07-25 15:13 (UTC)

Sure. Because it's a core package. The symlink is gone on the next release. What purpose do either of these things serve in an AUR package? - the install scriptlet refers to a version that this package can't realistically match - the symlink is useless given that this is package is presumably installed after the fact for an installer which is not currently supported.

eworm commented on 2012-07-25 12:30 (UTC)

But the core package does still have all this, no?

falconindy commented on 2012-07-25 12:20 (UTC)

Please get rid of the compat symlink. It was only ever needed to placate AIF for the netinstaller. The install scriptlet isn't really needed either.
