Please don't flag this package out-of-date just because the version number displayed on AUR seems old.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.

Seems like the build is currently broken due to some recent changes upstream:

-- Checking Lua interpreter /usr/bin/luajit
-- [/usr/bin/luajit] The 'mpack' lua package is required for building Neovim
-- Checking Lua interpreter /usr/bin/lua
-- [/usr/bin/lua] The 'mpack' lua package is required for building Neovim
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:390 (message):
A suitable Lua interpreter was not found.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Relevant changes:
They are now using 'libmpack' ( instead of lua51-messagepack. They are also now using a libuv Lua binding called 'luv' ( Looks like the following may be a quick fix for the 'luv' dependency, but I wasn't able to try it since the build doesn't get that far:

timofonic: Probably not. I found some discussion in

Can that be automated?

Heads up: When upgrading to msgpack-c 1.4.0 (currently in [community-testing]), this package will have to be recompiled (I had to use makepkg -C, to clean the CMake cache) to link the new

agauniyal: Just setting the flag in /etc/makepkg.conf and running makepkg should work; are you experiencing problems?

How should I build this with -march=native flag?

My apologies - I hadn't swapped out libvterm-bzr for libvterm when it was added to the Arch repos in November.

mrkline: The package currently depends on "libvterm" and "libtermkey", which are both in the Arch repos. Bazaar is not required to build.

mrkline commented on 2016-01-05 18:47

Is there any chance this package could use neovim's Github mirrors of libvterm and libtermkey ( and, respectively)?

This eliminates bazaar as a build dependency, and cloning from Github seems to go *much* faster than from

On second thought, I agree with Scimmia. If you want a clean build, you can use 'makepkg -C'.
