@Attius_Sullivan @gothicVI @kamilpajek @Z2h-A6n

I have updated the pkgbuild according to your comments. Let me know if you are satisfied with the current solution.

Not sure if installing sagetex via pacman is the right way on a manual texlive installation via this package (installing via tlmgr didn't work). But if so, we're missing texlive-latexrecommended in the provides array.

@Z2h-A6n thanks for the deeper dive. I'd assume removing texlive-most should be enough.

The issue with texlive-core potentially is a faulty regeneration of the .SRCINFO file on my end - I'll have to check with my machine later today. Anyway, I do agree that it should not be there.

@zhou13 could you check on your end as well?

I had to reinstall texlive-installer kile and libreoffice-extension-texmaths.

@kamilpajek: Presumably due to the TeX Live package reorganization, kile no longer requires texlive-core, so I guess updating kile first may work (I don't use kile, so I can't test it).

@maintainer(s): Presumably also related to the package reorganization, the texlive-most group doesn't appear to exist anymore, so that part of the $(pacman -Sgq texlive-most texlive-lang) entry in provides line of this PKGBUILD presumably should change. I'm not sure if it makes sense to provide all members of the texlive group or do something else.

Also, while this package provides texlive-basic, and texlive-basic provides, texlive-core, this package doesn't seem to provide texlive-core. E.g., when I install it and run pacman -Qi texlive-installer on my machine, I don't see texlive-core in the provides list. (I don't understand how texlive-core ends up in the list of provided packages in the AUR web interface.) This causes problems with packages which still depend on texlive-core, such as kile (before updating?) in kamilpajek's case, or latex-mk in my case. I'm not sure what the intended resolution is, i.e. whether texlive-installer should provide texlive-core, or if other packages should stop depending on texlive-core.

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: installing texlive-installer (2023-4) breaks dependency 'texlive-core' required by kile

@frabjous done - thanks for bringing this up
