Hello, Could you update this package ?

matthias.lisin commented on 2018-08-23 14:36

@cdown Thanks for the quick response. I have a other small request. Could you consider this PKGBUILD?

# Maintainer: Chris Down <>

pkgdesc='Simple Python version management'
optdepends=('mercurial: to install dev builds')

package() {
    cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"

    install -d -m755 "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"
    install -D -m644 completions/pyenv.bash "${pkgdir}/usr/share/bash-completion/completions/pyenv"
    install -D -m644 completions/ "${pkgdir}/usr/share/fish/completions/"
    # no zsh completion for now
    install -D -m644 LICENSE "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/LICENSE"
    install -D bin/pyenv "${pkgdir}/opt/pyenv/bin/pyenv"

    cp -a libexec "${pkgdir}/opt/pyenv/"

    # install python-build plugin
    cd plugins/python-build
    PREFIX="${pkgdir}/opt/pyenv" ./ 

    # go back to the package dir
    cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"

    # symlink all executables to /usr/bin
    for i in bin/{pyenv-install,pyenv-uninstall,python-build} libexec/pyenv; do
        ln -s "/opt/pyenv/${i}" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/"

o@matthias.lisin Sorry, I missed the flag. It's fixed now.

@cdown Do you indent to update this package in near future, or can I take over as maintainer?

@cdown Sorry for not checking more carefully before posting here, but the issue appears to be with the aur helper I used to upgrade (aurman). Installing with makepkg (or even trizen) seems to work just fine.

@fysihcyst: Where do you see that? It looks ok for me:

After the upgrade from 1.2.3 -> 1.2.4 the files in the upstream package seem to now have permissions set so only the group, not others can read and execute. Is this intentional? Is there anything wrong with just running chmod -R o=g /opt/pyenv or should I be adding myself to the appropriate group?

+1 @arvidsaur's comment; I ended up installing through the repo's README instructions

arvidsaur commented on 2018-01-15 16:48

Seems like the upstream should be changed to

@SilverRainZ: bash is part of the base group. The base group is assumed to be installed, packages in it are not generally listed as dependencies in other, non-base packages.

base and base-devel are simply assumed to be installed whenever building a PKGBUILD. If they are not, that's something you need to fix on your system.
