@dmnc Hi. Thanks for the message. This is intentional behavior for security reasons. Very few packages have binary files anyway, but the user should be aware of every single file a package contains. Simply hiding the binary files in a package, could pose a security risk.

As an alternative solution, there is the configuration option one_line_edit, which lists the files in a list and asks the user to select which ones to view/edit (requested here).

@trizen Hi, I can't create the issue on github, so here's my feature request:

Lot of packages asks for editing files. Some of them (binary files) can't be edited, for example PNG file in winbox package: =>> Edit winbox/winbox.png? [y/N]:

What about some whitelisting/blacklisting them or testing the file if it is binary? I.e. file -bL --mime-encoding $filename

Since the last version, the default answer after hitting an error has become Y instead of N. Is there a way to revert this behaviour?

After recent perl update the following error comes when checking for AUR packages: Error parsing time at /usr/lib/perl5/5.30/core_perl/Time/ line 597.

Please consider use of DateTime::Format::Strptime or an alternative

@funkmuscle: Try changing the value of PKGDEST in /etc/makepkg.conf to some other path on another hard drive (preferably somewhere in the $HOME directory).

this upgrade won't build for me.

/usr/bin/makepkg: line 723: /run/media/harv/C29E77669E775241/packages/trizen-1:1.61-1-any.pkg.tar.xz: Invalid argument bsdtar: Write error ==> ERROR: Failed to create package file. The build failed.

@indianahorst: For security reasons, trizen (by default) executes sudo --remove-timestamp before makepkg is executed.

This ensures that sudo privileges do not remain active for any other sudo commands that may appear in a PKGBUILD.

To disable this option, set sudo_remove_timestamp to 0 in the config-file.

I have to type in my password, when trizen -Syu finds a package to update from core / extra / community. Thats fine.

But why do I have to type in my password AGAIN, when there is an additional AUR package to update? Can I disable this second password prompt?
