Last update solved the issue for me. Thank you.

@spider-mario Yes it is a build error. I had the same problem on three different machines. I build in this order: moarvm, nqp and rakudo.
moarvm and nqp are now installed with the last version, but rakudo fails to compile.
I think that alexpr just had to downgrade moarvm and nqp, as the old rakudo fails to start with the updated dependencies.
Tell me if I can do something to give you more information about the problem.

I am not sure that I understand. Do you get this error when building the package? Have you tried removing old versions of rakudo/nqp/moarvm and building the new versions from scratch?

And in what way did it break your current install? That should not happen.

For me, the package built successfully, as you can tell from the update on my binary repository (see pinned comment). You can always try to install from there if all else fails.

@alekpr Look on the right of this page, in Package Actions, you click on View Changes. In the new page, you select the last commit working, 15 days ago. Then you click on Tree, and you must have the PKGBUILD corresponding.
For the future, it is always a good custom to save and keep your old AUR packages; rollback is still easier...

Ohhhh noooo, this issue cascades down and ruins my current install of Rakudo.

If you install the latest version you may have a chance of breaking perl6 on your system. Which is not good eats. @spider-mario, could you look in to this?

In the meantime, I'm going to try to find a workaround to install a previous version of Rakudo via the AUR.

@alekpr I have the same error!

alekpr commented on 2017-08-29 13:53

I've had this build failing since the last update (I think) - I'm getting this error

Unhandled exception: Missing or wrong version of dependency '/usr/bin/../share/nqp/lib/MAST/Nodes.nqp' (from 'src/Perl6/Pod.nqp')

Anyone else running in to this?

It should be done now, thanks.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will apply it when I get back to my Arch Linux machine, which unfortunately won’t be until the end of next week as I am currently on vacation.

Could you install tools/install-dist.pl to /usr/bin, e.g.

install -Dm 755 tools/install-dist.pl "$pkgdir/usr/bin/perl6-install-dist"

This makes it possible to install perl6 pkgbuilds system-wide without downloading the install-dist.pl script per package.
