Thank you again! I removed perl-extutils-makemaker to which the file belongs to and now it works.

Oops, I meant "pacman -Qo /path/to/file". Sorry.

Try to figure out which package owns that file:

pacman -S /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Parse/CPAN/

If it isn't owned by any package then simply remove it (and any other file and directory that might belong to the same Perl package). Anyway, this is definitely an issue with your installation, not with this package.

The package perl-parse-cpan-meta is not installed and the second line gives "/usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Parse/CPAN/". I cannot remember installing anything manually via cpan. But looking to the output of the package build, it seems that perl-cpan-meta-check wants the and the location it is in your installation. I'll check why...

You most likely still have installed either a package called perl-parse-cpan-meta (note the »parse-« in there; you've only talked about »perl-cpan-meta«) or the module itself (e.g. installed manually via cpan). Check both cases:

1. »pacman -Q|grep perl-parse-cpan-meta«
2. perl -le "use Parse::CPAN::Meta; print for %INC" | grep /Parse/CPAN/Meta

For me 2. prints this:


And this is what it should ouput as Parse::CPAN::Meta is in Perl's core.

It complains about perl-cpan-meta "Parse::CPAN::Meta version 1.4414 required--this is only version 1.4405". Its strange, but perl-cpan-meta is not installed and putting it as a depend into the PGKBUILD it tells me, perl-cpan-meta is already installed. I then installed it manually and I still get the same error when trying to build this package.

k, nvm, I guess it's not, my bad, sorry

Looks like this module is actually part of core_perl now... Should send in a delete request.

Please update your package. I cannot update some of mine due to failing build requirements until yours is updated.

If you don't have the time to maintain it anymore then that's perfectly understandable. In such a case please orphan it; I can adopt and maintain it.

I have a build error with 0.004-4 and a system pacman -Syu'd today:

==> Extracting sources...
-> Extracting CPAN-Meta-Check-0.004.tar.gz with bsdtar
==> Starting build()...
/tmp/yaourt-tmp-mbunkus/aur-perl-cpan-meta-check/./PKGBUILD: line 27: cd: /CPAN-Meta-Check-0.004: No such file or directory

It looks like $srcdir is not defined the moment the PKGBUILD is sourced, but only at the moment the individual functions are called.

My suggestion would be to move certain stuff into a new function called e.g. 'prepare_environment()' that can be called from the other functions, e.g. something like the following (I've built the package with this code):
