python-packaging was required to build otherwise:

Thank you all, I've fixes .SRCINFO!

@triarius You are spot on. I added epoch=1 to the PKGBUILD as you suggested and it corrected the behavior, although I believe that fixing it in .SRCINFO is the better fix. Then new installs will get a correct version number. So the best fix would be both adding epoch to the PKGBUILD and fixing the pkgver in .SRCINFO, as long as that would be an acceptable practice in the AUR.

@tejase The bug is in the .SRCINFO file. It has pkgver = r314.ffd639a-1 when it should have pkgver = r314.ffd639a. I suspect fixing this is not going to work, as r314.ffd639a-1-1 is a later version than r314.ffd639a-1. So a new epoch is required in the PKGBUILD to force package managers to recognise the correct version. You should be able to do this yourself to avoid your package manager from always trying to update it.

I think the .SRCINFO was hand rolled when it should be generated with makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO, so I suggest that @lyra add epoch=1 to the PKGBUILD and run that command to fix the package.

For some notebooks the fprintd-clients must be used because the fprintd doesnt work. I can also build, install and use these package with ignoring the fprintd dependency.

I also cant install the fprintd because its in conflict with the fprintd-clients.

So can you pls make the fprintd dependency as optional?

tejase commented on 2023-04-28 19:21 (UTC)

I believe there is a bug in this PKGBUILD. Every time I update my AUR packages via yay (yay -Sua, for example), it will clone and build this package even though git is still at the same commit. I believe it must be in the version string since it appends a '-1' every time like so: aur/swaylock-fprintd-git r314.ffd639a-1 -> r314.ffd639a-1-1

When I query pacman for the package, it reports the correct version number with a single '-1', even after I do an update. pacman -Q swaylock-fprintd-git swaylock-fprintd-git r314.ffd639a-1

It's not affecting functionality, the package works great, but it's just kind of annoying that it wants to update it every time I run some sort of system update. If you don't have time to take a look at, I might try to debug it and submit a merge request. Thanks!
