Good afternoon I'm assuming its bsdtar and not bdstar that created the error.

On my system:

>>locale -a



can you run these before makepkg and confirm your locale is set correctly?

Apologies, I'm on a very challenging keyboard/mouse -- previous comment entered unintentionally...

$makepkg -si
->Extracting with bdstar
bdstar: Pathname cannot be converted from UTF-8 to current locale.
bdstar: Archive entry has empty or unreadable filename ... skipping.
[this error repeats 8 times]
bdstar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
==> ERROR: Failed to extract

I have tried to "makepkg -si" with my locale set to "C", to "en_US.UTF-8" and to "he_IL.UTF-8" and all give the same error.

I was able to makepkg -si for culmus without error.

If I should be asking somewhere else, please forgive me and point me in the right direction. Yes, I have searched both the wiki and the bbs. Thanks!

Seems like they were not necessary dependencies at all. I have remove all unneeded dependencies and updating system should not conflict any more.

xorg-fonts-alias dependency seems to be replaced with/split into a bunch of new ones:

I agree. Modified the description to better, well, describe this package.

I am confused about the description of this package. I think modification is in place. Perhaps something like:

Open-source licensed Unicode fonts: majority are Hebrew fonts. There are also Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Arabic, Amharic and more. Packaged from the Open Siddur Project's open-source Unicode font pack.

For now I added ttf-symbola to conflicts list.

This package contains ttf-symbola fonts plus two other fonts by George Douros.

ttf-symbola seems pretty popular (as well as culmus) and I'm wondering if I should remove these fonts from this package in order to resolve the conflicts. Alternatively leaving them would keep this package a simple go-to for most free Hebrew fonts.

Conflicts with Symbola

Added to conflicts list.

Note: package conflicts culmus and ttf-sil-ezra as it contains their fonts (plus many more).
