Yeah, sorry for the confusion.

Stunts commented on 2015-10-01 13:44

Yeah, between April and June the md5sum of the package changed several times IIRC...
When I saw your first comment I thought it had changed *again*...
All is well, I guess.

wookietreiber commented on 2015-10-01 13:40

Oh, I see you already did all that, nevermind.

@Stunts: I just checked the difference between the tarballs (still had the old one): the new tarball just has a new root directory "mrbayes_3.2.5", all file contents are the same. So, you'll just need to bump pkgrel, update the md5 and change `cd $srcdir/src` to `cd $srcdir/mrbayes_$pkgver/src` and all is fine.

@Stunts: I just got a report that the md5 changed upstream on my mrbayes-mpi AUR package and wanted to let you know about this. I don't know what happened there at SourceForge because the file is still displayed as modified at 2015-05-28.

Well, at least the documentation is improved. Thanks for the head up.
Package is updated, however AUR4 git seems to be acting up, so it might take a while before the updated version is available.
In the meantime you can pick it up here:

Upstream shuffled the file structure around. Also there is a nice txt summary that could go in /usr/share/doc. Both tweaks included in

Updated to latest upstream release.
Thanks @wookietrebier for the heads up.

I can do that, no objection here. However, this package only installs one file (/usr/bin/mb). Wouldn't it be better of mrbayes-mpi installed only /usr/bin/mb-mpi, like it is done with RAxML, so that both versions can be installed simultaneously?
If you still think conflicting packages are better I can add that line.

@Stunts: Please add:


I just took over this package after its maintainer orphaned it. I think it is useful to have both.

Stunts commented on 2014-12-04 10:07

Updated to latest version.
Thanks to "wookietreiber" for the heads up.

Stunts commented on 2013-10-16 08:46

Updated to 3.2.2.
Thanks for the heads up!

Updated to latest upstream release.

Updated to latest upstream version.

Stunts commented on 2011-04-13 12:43

Adopted, and updated PKGBUILD to use patches to make it 64bit safe, and correct a segfault during SumP.

Stunts commented on 2011-01-13 01:05

Mrbayes segfaults on 64bit when doing a "sumt".
This is a known issue there are patches to solve it.
Care to do the update?
If you want I can also take over the package. I've been using it a lot lately.
