@eworm Thanks a lot!

What's wrong there? I tried to temporarily fix it by editing PKGBUILD, but I'm not sure what happens.

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'

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

WonderWoofy commented on 2013-10-22 04:12

You need asciidoc in the makedepends.

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

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

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

falconindy commented on 2012-07-25 12:20

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.
