It would be great you updated the package to the upsteam version 09-23.1

bergentroll: The canonical source of urlview isn't actually debian. Seems to be here.

Dragonlord, current versioning is a bit confusing. v0.9-13 corresponds to v0.9-21 of Debian upstream. So why not just to use pkgrel for patchlevel and epoch for package downstream versioning? Or, if you dislike epoch, you may set e.g. _upsver=0.9 and pkgver=${_upsver}.${_patchlevel}.

Hi Dragonlord, are you able to implement bergentroll's one-liner fix? I can confirm that it works flawlessly.

It seems something changed. Patch gzipped file have not being unpacked to $SRC, so build crashes on prepare(). It seems it is because bsdtar does not handle *.gz files. I really does no know why things worked and than became broken. The next line in beginning of prepare() fixes the issue:

gunzip --force "${srcdir}/${pkgname}_${pkgver}-$_patchlevel.diff.gz"

@srand I'm a bit late here but I created a urlview-git package that includes this patch, if anyone is interested.

Would be nice if the package included this patch, it applies flawlessly and is already merged upstream (, but it doesn't seem like there will be a new release anytime soon.

PKGBUILD is missing makedepends=('automake' 'autoconf')

Hello, could you please include 'aarch64' architecture? Thank you!
