Hook just runs: pacman -Qqo '/usr/lib/perl5/5.26' (where 5.26 is old version of perl that was upgraded)

Any package which still owns that directory is treated as outdated.

There is no directory 5.26.X so we cant write a similar hook for minor version dependency check. So yes that how it is.

But its not a big deal. You can either upgrade perl with --nodeps or remove perl-par-packer first and upgrade perl and then rebuild perl-par-packer

I see. Should the hooks be altered or it's just how it is?

amish commented on 2018-08-08 05:33

Hooks check only upto 2nd level version, example 5.28 whereas this package depends on exact version 5.28.0 as already mentioned in PKGBUILD due to embedding. Hooks will not warn for upgrade from 5.28.0 to 5.28.1.

MarcinWieczorek commented on 2018-08-07 22:22

Shouldn't it be handled by perl hooks?

@MarcinWieczorek - yes you need to rebuild it for perl 5.28.0. I had already upgraded pkgrel. Built correctly for me.

MarcinWieczorek commented on 2018-08-07 00:02

That's cool, just a friendly reminder ;)

Also, this package fails an upgrade because it wants an old perl version. I'll try to look into that, I don't know much about perl packaging though.

Ya sorry. It was out of habit of bumping pkgrel just before git push. But didnt know that it was a very popular package! :)

MarcinWieczorek commented on 2018-06-05 12:13

You changed the urls, yet forced everyone to rebuild by bumping the pkgrel. That's bad.

I have modified PERL5LIB. However I still believe there should be proper fix. May be at upstream?
