I apologize, I did not realize I had the testing version of "perl-term-readline-gnu". Downgrading from testing helped. Again, I apologize.

@mikearch: report this issue to the maintainer of "perl-term-readline-gnu". Or just don't use the "testing" repos if you're not ready for such issues.

@trizen , already reinstalled all the relevant packages and I still get the error!

@mikearch: rebuild/reinstall perl-term-readline-gnu

After latest system upgrade:

Cannot do `initialize' in Term::ReadLine::Gnu at /usr/bin/trizen line 691.

When invoking trizen with any command line arguments.

I'm not sure of the cause, but when I use Trizen to install FreeFileSync, the source package is corrupted and only 36.2K in size instead of 2.1MB. When I download the snapshot and use makepkg, it all works. I am running Firejail, but this has caused no problems in the past; I just thought I should mention it.

@trizen: thanks for doing this change, and thanks to damentz for the follow-up. The way this is not dealt with is much clearer. The sticky point was asking about "other packages" whereas it was not clear from the start what would be installed in the first place, by answering No. As it is now, trizen installs all of the split packages, and this is the logical default behaviour.

@trizen Thanks!

Thanks @damentz. In version 1.54, a simpler approach has been taken, by removing the question "Do you want to install other packages from this group?" and asking directly to select which packages to install, where the packages that are already installed, along with the main package specified during -S, are selected by default.

@trizen I think maybe what we need is a way to whitelist AUR packages so that trizen installs all split packages by default on packages the user decides they want going forward.

A good example are all the linux-* derivatives in the AUR. They all usually produce the binary (linux-*), docs (linux-*-docs), and headers (linux-*-headers). Most users just want to install all of these, and especially if the package is updated frequently, not have to have to explicitly answer 'Y' to installing the split packages every time.

Then there's packages like nvidia-vulkan that produce packages that mutually conflict (a binary kernel module package + a kernel module dkms package), and the user needs to select the right one for their needs.

I could see two ways of setting this - 1) through the trizen.conf file, and 2) have trizen remember the choices the user makes if the installation is successful.

This is all a lot of work however, so I understand if you would reject this idea due to its complexity. But great work on trizen! It's become my favorite pacman / aur wrapper since I jumped ship from yaourt. Thanks for all the hard work on it!
