I'm sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I no longer have time to maintain the package. Anyone is welcome to pick it up.

Installation fails because 7 tests are failing. I would appreciate a fix.

Thanks for the comment. I've pushed a pkgrel update with the new checksums. They changed at some point today. These files worked for me this morning.

The checksum is wrong. This worked for me:

Same problem here, had this for a few months already. 1 test fails during the installation and that breaks the build process.

Anything we can do about this?

Thank you

Hello, thank you for maintaining the package.

You do a great job.

But today I had to reinstall the package and met with unexpected behavior: samtools didn't install due to some failing tests. But when I've started investigate it, I found out that that tests were failing due to perl in their pipelines, which wrote a message about unspecified locale. :)

I think that some warning in 3rd party software shouldn't prevent the package from installation.

Oops sorry @viralstitch. Missed it somehow. Thank you!

If you've installed samtools-1.10-2, you'll need to upgrade to samtools-1.10-3 before upgrading htslib in order to solve the dependency issue.

Let me know if there are any other issues. Thanks!

@viralstitch Did you mean to depend on htslib=1.10 or htslib>=1.10? Currently htslib is 1.10.1, so samtools cannot be installed.

I think this is an issue with htslib changing its type names. I've updated the package to require htslib=1.10
