grille, the website had cgit interface earlier which they switched to stagit that's why the snapshot link is not working. I'll fix the link in the PKGBUILD. However, the extra config.h file is to configure the package before installation. This is because to configure sent, you have to change the original config.h file and compile the package again. The config.h shipped with the pkgbuild is similar to original one but it can be modified and be used to build the configure package easily. So, you're not supposed to remove it.

hello,

I've got some problems with the actual package, trying to install it via yaourt. It didn't install and told me about an error downloading the sources.

So i tried to change the PKGBUILD, comparing it with the PKGBUILD from farbfeld, done by the same team of programmers.

I mainly changed the source of the package from https://git.suckless.org/sent/snapshot/sent-1.tar.gz to https://dl.suckless.org/tools/sent-1.tar.gz

and deleted the extra download of config.h.

I cleaned the rest of the PKGBUILD to make it work and also added an installation of the example at /etc/sent/examples/example.

It's the first PKGBUILD I did and I'm still a bit noobish, so I would like to get a feedback, if it's a useful hack or not and if it's conform with styleguides and PKG guidlines.

Or should I better post something like this in the forum?

thanks and greetings, grille

you can find my PKGBUILD here (it's called aur-sent-pkgbuild: https://github.com/Pieandcream/aur-sent
