@f2404 Hi,

Yes, you're right. Found out that I forgot to install base-devel.
Thank for the reply.

Hi @idiotbox,
no, they shouldn't be stated in PKGBUILD - see

Please check whether the build issue persists after following the instructions.

Getting the following error while building.

checking for alpm_version in -lalpm... yes
./configure: line 12045: syntax error near unexpected token `alpm,'
./configure: line 12045: `PKG_CHECK_MODULES(alpm, libalpm >= 10.0.0)'
==> ERRO: Uma falha ocorreu em build().

Just did a Arch fresh install, and it seems that there are a lot of buildeps not present in PKGBUILD, like make, gcc, autoconf. souldn't they be present?

@Fresco : yes, you are right. Updated to use correct pkgver variable.

Freso commented on 2016-03-13 21:49

You should really consider using one a pkgver() based off of one of the ones at - right now the latest package-query-git resolves to "1.8.13.g8ad832f-1", which means that it would show up as being more recent than a theoretical 1.8.1 being released a month from now. All the ones on the wikipage adds an "r" before the number of revisions since last tag.

(I would also personally make the $provides dynamic so it provides whatever version gets set with pkgver(). Means that part doesn't have to be updated once 1.9 is tagged.)

Thanks for reporting it!

Suddenly, after installing version 1.7.80.gb2a07fe-1, I'm missing newlines between packages in the output of:
package-query -QAm
Looks strange now..... are this intended...?

Just wanted to be sure about the steps to follow. I rebuilt the package and all is back to normal now.

As for the PKGBUILD not needing a change, shouldn't at least the package relation be updated to 2 to concord with the package-query one?

tuxce commented on 2014-12-29 19:14

You just need to rebuild it, the PKGBUILD doesn't need to change.
The link with libs is made on build time, so if you built it when you had libalpm.8, you have to redo it after installing pacman 4.2 which provides libalpm.9

rcct commented on 2014-12-29 19:13

Any hint on managing the libalpm update with the git version?

The non git one has been update as far as I have checked (even its PKGBUILD) though this one does seem to lack behind...
