+1 to linkmauve and grandchild.

Please add conflicts and provides for termbox, so programs depending on it can just use 'termbox' in their depends.

Please fix the pkgver(), as requested several times. There are suggestions in the comments as well as on
Thanks! :)

The PKGBUILD is missing "python" in makedepends. This package does not build in a clean chroot environment.

fixed pkgbuild:

oops forgot 1 more: please add "staticlibs" option - as this library is popular as a lightweight alternative for ncurses, people might/will want to link statically against it for small/embedded systems

waf shouldn't be a dependency -- it's already included in the git repo (you run ./waf ___ in your pkgbuild)

the main issue is the pkgver() function is broken, and always thinks there is an update

Whenever I go to do an update with yaourt, it thinks that termbox-git needs to be updated, even when it does not. I believe this is do to the current `pkgver` function not using a comparable value. The following function should work well when trying to do a system update:

pkgver() {
cd $_gitname
echo $(git rev-list --count HEAD).$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)

Could you set the pkgver in the PKGBUILD to 0.0.0? My AUR helper keeps wanting to update the package, even though nothing has changed.

Updated PKGBUILD available at
If mlq doesn't want to maintain this any longer, I gladly would. I've taken a bit of a liking to this library so far :P

packaging fails at "install -D"

Either add a full path, like $srcdir/termbox-build/src/libtermbox.a, or do a

"cd src" before the "install" commands...
