OK. Now the source url is updated to https.

Hi, thank you for the package. Would you consider changing the source to https instead of http? The website supports this. Thanks!

TY. Works now!

OK fixed.

There is one too many "../" in "patch -p2 < ../../Makefile.patch".

tamjan commented on 2015-01-31 09:38

I get:
==> Starting prepare()...
/tmp/yaourt-tmp-tamjan/aur-pxz/./PKGBUILD: line 21: ../../Makefile.patch: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
Aborting...
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build pxz.

Two choices:
- Someone could make a separate "pxz-git" package.
- Someone could make a 20130519 package (for example) which would be basically the same as the pxz-git package, but simpler to create. There's not a newer source tarball, so this would have to pull from git directly.

I'm orphaning this package, as I don't use it anymore and probably won't have time to play with these ideas.

It seems this version has an (admittedly rare) bug that the latest version from git does not have. What are your plans on updates?

Patching fails for me. It works when stripping one level from "../../Makefile.patch", like this:

patch -p2 < ../Makefile.patch || return 1

Changed, thanks--now depends on xz directly.
