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!

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'

pacman -U linux-drm-tip-git-r694381.5cd16b6da7da-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz linux-drm-tip-git-headers-r694381

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

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?
