After "pacaur -Syu" I got this warning:

( 4/13) Warn about old perl modules
WARNING: '/usr/lib/perl5/core_perl' contains data from at least 1 packages which will NOT be used by the installed perl interpreter.
-> Run the following command to get a list of affected packages: pacman -Qqo '/usr/lib/perl5/core_perl'

This is due to vmware-vcli package:

$ pacman -Qqo '/usr/lib/perl5/core_perl'

Once "lib32-ncurses5-compat-libs" package from AUR is installed, resxtop is working :-). Perhaps you could include this package as an optional dependency so that resxtop can work. Thanks!!

The locations config file was getting locations from $pkgdir. I'm not sure if we can influence that during the build but for now I've just added some sed commands to correct the file at the end.

chrpinedo, see if that's any better now. resxtop is 32-bit only so you'll have to either be on 32-bit or be 32-bit compatible.

resxtop is not working for me:

$ LANG=C resxtop
/usr/bin/resxtop: line 194: /home/user/.cache/pacaur/vmware-vcli/pkg/vmware-vcli/lib/vmware-vcli/lib/ No such file or directory

For anyone else who gets the issue:

mv: cannot stat 'vmware-vcli/pkg/vmware-vcli/bin/*': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

I built this in a path with an upper-case letter e.g.

and found the binaries in a folder with all lower-case letters i.e.:

I haven't looked at the PKGBUILD or file, I just built it in the lower-case path.

@karol most likely this part:

mv "$pkgdir"/bin/* "$pkgdir"/usr/bin/

But it works for me. Maybe see what's in your $pkgdir at that point.

I have the following issue, any tips on how to solve this?:

This installer has successfully installed both vSphere CLI and the vSphere SDK
for Perl.

mv: cannot stat 'vmware-vcli/pkg/vmware-vcli/bin/*': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

file:// works for me, but so does local:// so I'll update it if it fixes your issue.

Thank you for this package, however I had a small issue:
==> Making package: vmware-vcli (Tue Nov 15 13:25:27 PST 2016)
==> Retrieving sources...
-> Found for-arch.patch
==> ERROR: Unknown download protocol: file

I had to replace the source entries:

This was with Pacman v5.0.1 - libalpm v10.0.1

OK fixed the executable bit, thanks.
