Please don't flag this package out-of-date just because the version number displayed on AUR seems old. This is normal for VCS packages. As long as building the package works without problems, it isn't necessary to update the PKGBUILD here. makepkg will automatically retrieve the latest version when you build the package locally.

@Spyhawk: Well, to be fair, you *can* install this package with plain makepkg -U, yaourt, aura, and packer (didn't test other helpers). So you could also argue that pacaur does something that "nobody" else is doing. But I'll see what I can do.

@z33ky, NoniusSenior: Neovim is invoked during the installation to generate helptags for :help. Due to upstream changes, this now shows as a brief flickering of the terminal screen.

FYI, installing this package currently doesn't work with the latest released version of pacaur. The problem is fixed in pacaur-git.

Hi, I wonder if I can get a minimal version of neovim-git? Just like vim-minimal which I previously used? Does neovim really need all theses dependencies like lua51, luajit, etc? I can remove them immediately as orphaned packages after installation of neovim.
And libvterm-bzr? The description says: "Abstract library implementation of a VT220/xterm/ECMA-48 terminal emulator." I use st as my terminal so why would I need that?

The build-requirements on the neovim git-page simply state for Arch Linux: base-devel cmake unzip. Wouldn't that be enough for a minimal installation of neovim?

To be clear: I don't mean to rant here. I'm glad you package neovim for Arch so keep up the good work!

I had the same problem as @z33ky, gnome terminal went blank. I did not modify anything.

z33ky commented on 2015-08-13 15:28

My terminal went completely blank for a fraction of a second but returned to normal. It was also near the completion of the build.
I have modified the PKGBUILD to use Ninja instead of GNU Make though.

@slester: yes I have seen that too. Killing the process usually help but I have not been able to understand what was the reason.

slester commented on 2015-08-13 14:48

Anyone else having a problem with this install just flickering to a black screen after at least 70% of the compiling is done? My console goes blank with no history and is unresponsive.

@anatolik: Sorry, forgot to add: It should be possible to switch the dependencies from "luajit lua51-lpeg lua51-messagepack" to "luajit lua52 lua52-lpeg lua52-messagepack lua52-bitop" or "luajit lua lua-lpeg lua-messagepack lua-bitop" (bitop is "built in" in LuaJIT). Since LuaJIT is required anyway, I didn't want to maintain an explicit dependency on an additional Lua.

fwalch commented on 2015-07-21 10:52

@anatolik: Neovim requires LuaJIT, which can be used as a replacement for Lua 5.1. Because of this, the Lua dependencies are "lua51-*" packages.
The "lua51" package is not required, but still pulled in since "luajit" does not "provides=(lua51)".

anatolik commented on 2015-07-20 20:09

BTW do you know the reason neovim uses lua51 instead of up-to-date lua53?
