find: cannot delete ‘./CryptoPkg/Library/MbedTlsLib/mbedtls/ChangeLog.d’: Directory not empty

Fixed by adding -type f to the find -delete invocation

Missed this error, so I don't know since when it started

==> Extracting sources...
  -> Creating working copy of edk2 git repo...
fatal: bad object refs/remotes/origin/dependabot/github_actions/actions/upload-artifact-4
error: /home/gesh/.local/var/cache/pacman/sources/edk2 did not send all necessary objects

Any idea what might be wrong?

UPDATE: For some reason, after nuking the pacman cache several times, this suddenly worked. No idea what changed, perhaps an upstream difference.

Thanks for reporting that @Gadgethm. I have pushed a fix for that now which seems to be in line with what other projects & Arch packages have adopted. It's working okay to update it for me but please let me know if you get any further issues.

This package no longer builds for me (and hasn't for a while). I get the following error when cloning certain submodules:

fatal: transport 'file' not allowed

I believe this may be related to this bug:

Thanks for the patch gesh - I agree it makes sense to always have the consistent format.

Please add --long to the git --describe command in pkgver() -- I use the installed commitish in my "what's new" script. Patch included below

    Always include commitish in pkgver

Looks like its pulling older tag using git describe. Maybe annotated vs annotated issues. Changing to 'git describe --tags' works for me and pulls the later tag : edk2-stable202102-188-g1e6b0394d6

Noticed that submodules didn't get cached (I have SRCDEST=$XDG_CACHE_HOME/pacman/sources), so I wrote this patch. Basically, declarations at toplevel of PKGBUILD aren't passed through to functions:

It was actually down to spacing in the patch (not sure if it's on my end or the AUR has done it). I manually fixed that up and got it applied now. Thanks for your help.

gesh commented on 2020-11-10 21:48 (UTC)

I think the sticking point is the pkgver edit, try removing it. Can't test right now.
