Hmm, a test is failing
t/00-ALPM.t ....... 2/?
# Failed test 'get_gpgdir has same value as set_gpgdir args'
# at t/00-ALPM.t line 59.
# got: 't/root/gnupg/'
# expected: 't/root/gnupg'
# Looks like you failed 1 test of 52.

Ah! Thanks for the help.

@juster, AUR3 is frozen: you need to go to login and disown it there.

bidulock commented on 2014-06-04 20:44

Please bump the pkgrel to 3 to trigger recompile against perl 5.20.0.

bidulock commented on 2013-06-01 16:22

Please bump the pkgrel to 2 to trigger recompile against perl 5.18.0.

Excellent! Thank you.

Updated for pacman 4.1.

bidulock commented on 2013-04-09 17:39

Does not build against from pacman 4.1.

bidulock commented on 2013-04-09 12:43

PKGBUILD needs corrections to run with makepkg 4.1

Yep it only took me a YEAR but I got something released finally. The weird part is my comment that I would get started on this was exactly a year ago today.

OK juster, I'm ur huckleberry :-P look for lots of love and attention from jnbek@gh :-P

juster commented on 2012-10-26 00:15

Wow its been a long time since this has been broken. No it is not pacman 4 ready. Sorry. I still plug away at it once and awhile but it's slow going. You can track my progress on github at and even try building it. I still need to update the docs. Alot has changed.

jnbek commented on 2012-10-22 22:52

I would love to use this, is this pacman 4 ready?

jnbek commented on 2012-10-22 22:52

I would love to use this :)

juster commented on 2012-01-18 15:26

Okay then I'll get started on it.

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-18 10:42

I use this for several personal projects and would love to see it updated.

juster commented on 2012-01-17 17:19

Does anyone use this? If not I'm not going to update it for pacman 4.0. I mean I might if I get really bored...

ALPM::Package->vercmp gives "Usage: ALPM::Package::vercmp(a, b) at line 36." Calling it as ALPM::Package::vercmp works though.

juster commented on 2011-11-26 21:14

That is an error in the documentation. I changed it to ALPM::Package->vercmp. Sorry I need to fix that.

Anonymous comment on 2011-11-26 20:22

vercmp seems to be broken

use ALPM qw( /etc/pacman.conf );
print ALPM->vercmp('5.14-1', '5.12-1');

vercmp is not a valid ALPM macro at line 2

juster commented on 2011-03-25 12:43

Thanks for the concern but it doesn't work with pacman 3.5 yet. I tend to generate my own PKGBUILDs but that was nice of you.

Are you using this module? Just wondering if I should fix it faster because I don't know anyone who uses it seriously.

3ED_0 commented on 2011-03-25 12:07

PKGBUILD with new version:

juster commented on 2010-05-23 20:04

Gah! Thanks for telling me. I forgot to delete a line and it screwed up everything. For some reason I didn't notice the AUR e-amil notification until today... sigh. Perl 5.12 compiles and tests successfully. I will update the AUR package tomorrow.

I should one day use this module...

xenoterracide commented on 2010-05-19 22:04

this doesn't pass its test suite... I should note that it could be because of a package needing a rebuild for 5.12
