python-distutils-extra is necessary in the makedepends

@fungalnet It's a split package. Try " pbget --resolve-pkgbases php7-embed". It works for me.

fungalnet commented on 2022-07-16 10:03 (UTC)

Any idea why is php7-embed not being picked up?

Sorry, I forgot to update the default options in Bauerbill. Remove "--pull" from the options to pbget in /etc/bauerbill/bauerbill.json.

Today i try to update my system with command:

bb-wrapper -Syu --aur

Finally i got following odd output:

created build/
created build/
~/build ~
usage: pbget [-h] [--arch <architecture>] [--aur] [--aur-only] [--clear] [--config <path>] [--debug] [--dir <path>] [--maintainer <maintainer>]
             [--no-pull] [--trunk] [--resolve-pkgbases] [--testing] [--ttl TTL] [--upgradable]
             [<pkgname> ...]
pbget: error: unrecognized arguments: --pull

I try to reinstall pbget and python3-xcpf, but this did not solve the problem. Any ideas to fix this error?

Great, python3-xcpf fixes it, but!

zstd is currently on testing

pbget --trunk zstd # gets testing pkgver=1.5.1-2

pbget --testing zstd # gets core pkgver=1.5.0-1

pbget zstd # gets the same as testing pkgver=1.5.0-1

@fungalnet There was a bug in the caching logic combined with the no-pull-by-default behavior. It should be fixed with the latest release of pbget and python3-xcpf which will be up shortly.

Both --trunk and --testing seem to mulfunction with some testing packages. Not using any flags should point to core/extra/community releases, this doesn't explain a month or two (10 versions old copy).

See if you can reproduce it with other testing packages.

@fungalnet There's already a --trunk option for this.

fungalnet commented on 2021-12-23 05:05 (UTC)

Odd behavior after latest rebuild, I used it to get latest linux-lts (5.10.88-2 on testing -1 on core) and the version downloaded was 5.10.77-3

Is it by any chance picking the highest pkgrel from the versions/ part of the git, instead of looking at trunk/?

It would be nice if it can be -flagged to be able to get pkgs from testing/community-testing as well.

Many thanks for this Xyne!
