-git (and other VCS packages) versions and release numbers are not increased when upstreams does commits, it's changed only when PKGBUILD ist changed.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VCS_package_guidelines
"If the resulting package is different after changing the dependencies, URL, sources, etc. increasing the pkgrel is mandatory. Touching the pkgver is not."

Thanks - it works. Yes, it would be convenient to update pkgver for every new result of "git describe". By this "yaourt -Syau" recognize every new version.

matt64 commented on 2014-08-15 08:35

Ok fixed it. Shall I update the pkgver every time there's a new git tag ?

Raimar commented on 2014-08-14 11:11

Currently after updating, it is updating again. Package version should be pkgver=2.6.1.r18.ga5465a2 without trailing "-1".

KaiSforzas PKGBUILD seems better suited for this.

KaiSforza commented on 2013-04-06 02:32

Please update this package. I have it in my git repository, with the correct description= line and correct pkgver() function.

You are also missing dependencies.

Maybe you could change ./configure to
./configure --prefix=/usr
I don't want my packages in /usr/local

oktoberfest: This is a bug in gettext, since it is using soon-to-be-obsolete autoconf macros provided by automake.

Hi,

this package does not compile anymore after upgrading from automake-1.11.5-1-any.pkg.tar.xz to automake-1.12.1-1-any.pkg.tar.xz :

autoreconf: running: automake --add-missing --copy --no-force
automake: warnings are treated as errors
configure.ac:14: warning: The 'AM_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro is deprecated, and will soon be removed.
configure.ac:14: You should use the Autoconf-provided 'AC_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro instead,
configure.ac:14: and use '$(MKDIR_P)' instead of '$(mkdir_p)'in your Makefile.am files.

I updated the file. At least it works on my machine.

boppbo commented on 2012-05-09 09:37

I had to change the patch from nnnms to this, to compile successfully. http://pastebin.com/8cj7y9uT

Anonymous comment on 2012-05-03 10:23

the patch work to install powertop but when i try to launch it i have this message:
msr reg not found
i'm root, and i try to install msr-tools from aur but it doesn't work.

pnorcks commented on 2012-05-02 17:44

nnnms: You should send that patch to the powertop mailing list (see http://lists.lesswatts.org/mailman/listinfo/discuss).

Here is some fixes in PKGBUILD http://ompldr.org/vZGt5aw

pacman -S libnl

(french distrib^^)

portix commented on 2012-03-05 18:06

It doesn't compile, the Makefile needs to be patched like the powertop2-package.

Thanks: updated

The powertop git repo is hosted on github now:

Can't compile:

Maybe you can ask on http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.power-management.lesswatts.general/ ?

intgr commented on 2011-12-06 14:55

Yes, it has been down ever since the kernel.org fiasco.

But it was obvious long before that, that powertop 2 is vaporware.

rnestler commented on 2011-12-06 14:53

The git repository seems to be down:
Cloning into 'powertop'...
warning: You appear to have cloned an empty repository.

intgr commented on 2011-10-09 21:40

Since the kernel.org git repository is down, does anyone have a reasonably up-to-date git URL?
(Most powertop git clones that I could find are really old, from March 2011 or older)

canton7 commented on 2011-01-23 11:04

Hi all,
I've just adopted this package, and updated it to use the 2.0 beta's repo as suggested by intgr.

It's my first package so please be gentle, but please do make a fuss if you find a bug / update.

Thanks!

intgr commented on 2011-01-13 18:07

Per the recent PowerTOP 2.0 beta announcement ( https://lwn.net/Articles/421733/ ), the git URL should actually be git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/status/powertop/powertop.git

karol_007 commented on 2010-04-26 19:55

Ah, http://code.google.com/p/powertop/ indeed says "Powertop has moved to GIT." but http://www.lesswatts.org/projects/powertop/ doesn't have any info about it. A bit indirect / scattered way of managing info ...

Sorry, I should have checked the PKGBUILD first before posting.

Anonymous comment on 2010-04-26 19:31

This one builds the latest development version from GIT, the one from community builds v1.11

karol_007 commented on 2010-04-26 19:04

What's the difference between this one and the one from community http://www.archlinux.org/packages/?sort=&arch=&repo=&q=powertop
