@whi-tw It ends up building the exact same package, people who run into this error should naturally try to clean their cache. People who have it already installed should not have to rebuild this package.

Also for this reason I like to move my build directory for yay/paru to /tmp. :)

@SunRed It might still be worth bumping the pkgrel (yay doesn't pick up the change without a cache clean, as build files exist for that pkgrel)

@whi-tw @tigerjack Thanks for pointing this out. That must have happened when I renamed the package to the -git suffix. I could have sworn I tested the package build process back then but apparently I did not. A pkgrel bump should not be required as the package stays the same otherwise.

A 'better' patch for this is:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 79e9b8a..792c176 100644
@@ -15,12 +15,12 @@ source=("git://${pkgname//-git}.git")

 pkgver() {
-       cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}"
+       cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname//-git}"
        printf '%s.%s' "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

 package() {
-       cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}"
+       cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname//-git}"

        install -d -m755 "${pkgdir}"/{usr/bin,opt/$pkgname}
        install -m644 Ui_*.py "${pkgdir}/opt/${pkgname}/"

I've emailed the maintainer

The only way for me to install the package was by modifying the PKGBUILD file. You have to replace lines 18 and 24, changing

cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}"


cd "${srcdir}/polkit-explorer"

I don't have patience to configure git push, but here's what you need to change in PKGBUILD:

depends=('python2' 'python2-pyqt5' 'python2-lxml' 'qt5-base')

i get this when trying to start polkitex

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/sbin/polkitex", line 27, in <module> from PyQt4 import QtCore, QtGui ImportError: No module named sip

after installing python2-sip-pyqt4 it works...

Seems like 'git' is missing as a make-dependency.
