It compiles and passes all tests for me. @Louis would you re-run the tests to find out what is the problem?

uncompress source xmltv tarball, cd xmltv-0.5.70 and re-run the tests by $ prove -p -f

Got a build error as well. Thanks to @sultanoswing's fix I've fixed this.

As I am no longer using this package myself I will abandon it. I managed to transfer ownership to @blueowl as you seem more than capable to mantain it if you would like to. If not, pass it on or disown it for somebody else to adopt :)

Please update the package to new version 0.5.70 Patch:

Then the temporary build fixes in prepare() can be removed (fixed upstream). Patch:

@fezla 0.5.69 builds just fine for me. What is your error?

Hmmmm. Tried it yesterday myself on a clean arch install and it failed while doing the tests during building.

I did just install xmltv and I didn't have to do any manual changes to get it to install and run.

Although with new PKGBUILD, still get errors of modules not found because they are at /usr/lib/perl5/5.26/vendor_perl and @INC only includes /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl (without $version) and others similar.

The only way to build for me was to insert at the top:
export PERL5LIB=/usr/lib/perl5/5.26/vendor_perl

and to delete the 'unset PERL5LIB' everywhere.

So the build completed, now I'm going to test. If someone with more knowledge than me thinks I'm doing it wrong, please advise.

@blueowl: thanks! Commiting your prepare() as is shortly. Get back to me with your real name if you want it to appear in the PKGBUILD :)

As noted previously, xmltv package does not build with Perl 5.26.

Please add this prepare() function to PKGBUILD to fix it:

prepare() {
# To build corectly with Perl 5.26
# see
# and
sed "s/use POSIX 'tmpnam';//" -i "$pkgname-$pkgver"/filter/tv_to_latex
sed "s/use POSIX 'tmpnam';//" -i "$pkgname-$pkgver"/filter/tv_to_text
sed "s/\(lib\/';\)/.\/\1/" -i "$pkgname-$pkgver"/grab/it/tv_grab_it.PL
sed "s/\(filter\/';\)/.\/\1/" -i "$pkgname-$pkgver"/filter/tv_grep.PL
sed "s/\(lib\/';\)/.\/\1/" -i "$pkgname-$pkgver"/lib/
sed "s/\(lib\/Ask\/';\)/.\/\1/" -i "$pkgname-$pkgver"/Makefile.PL
