pkgver() gives 1.7.132.gdc19d03-1, so `yaourt -Sua` keeps asking me to upgrade yaourt-git.

Dasonk commented on 2014-10-06 00:02

You should add git as a make dependency

git repo moved to https://github.com/archlinuxfr/yaourt, please update PKGBUILD

thanks to make it works :)

Yaourt never removes its tmp litter (directory :) in /tmp when it's done. It just loiters there empty.

esrevinu commented on 2012-04-10 09:04

With pacman-4.0.3-1 installed, Bash completion for yaourt does not work.
Bash completion for yaourt depends on bash completion functions of pacman, which are, however, located in /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/ and
are dynamically loaded. When bash completion functions for pacman are not loaded, tab key after yaourt command complains like "_pacman_file: command not found"

I inserted a line as follows into /etc/bash_completion.d/yaourt:
_completion_loader pacman
This solved the problem.

tuxce commented on 2012-04-05 08:50

PKGBUILD updated.

augustob commented on 2012-04-04 16:51

It appears to have moved, as I do not used testing:

escher ~$ which install
/usr/bin/install

tuxce commented on 2012-04-02 08:52

coreutils from [core] provides /bin/install, the one from [testing] provides /usr/bin/install, I will change Makefile once it reaches [core], until then, you have to manualy modify the Makefile, or change PKGBUILD to have:
make INSTALL=/usr/bin/install PREFIX=/usr sysconfdir=/etc localstatedir=/var DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install

alucryd commented on 2012-03-23 11:45

Nevermind, I'll be recompiling only a few packages, doing it with everything is a waste of time.

alucryd commented on 2012-03-21 16:18

Also, when building a package which is part of a split PKGBUILD, yaourt -Sb will build all the split packages and install them all, can that be prevented? (sorry for the double post).

alucryd commented on 2012-03-21 15:38

Hi, I recently started to recompile every package when they're updated, (yaourt -Syubba). Problem is, ABS is only updated once a day, while the packages lists are updated several times a day. This causes yaourt to build packages which are already present on my system, and not the newer version. Is it possible to automatically check the package version from ABS and skip it if it's not newer?

Anonymous comment on 2011-11-25 20:48

@tuxce

worked, thanks!

yuyichao commented on 2011-11-25 16:19

yaourt failed to resolve depends= in package_ function for split package (e.g. wayland-mesa-git)

tuxce commented on 2011-11-25 00:19

@eldragon, update yaourt-git and retry, thanks

Anonymous comment on 2011-11-24 16:00

@karol_007
of course i used a PKGBUILD, otherwise it would not show as an installed package.

the line is
IgnorePkg = linux-git kernel26-lappy

and no, its not commented out.

you could test if you have the same issue. reinstall a package you have installed from aur, but edit its PKGBUILD and lower its version. then add it to your ignorepkg line and do yaourt -Syu --aur

karol_007 commented on 2011-11-24 12:44

Do you built it using a PKGBUILD?
Can you post that IgnorePkg line? It may begin with a '#' :P

Anonymous comment on 2011-11-24 12:42

at some point in time yaourt stopped honoring IgnorePkg from pacman.conf

i have my own linux-git package which i dont build from aur. but now yaourt tries to upgrade it even if its in my IgnorePkg line


is this expected?

posting here since im using pacman 4 + yaourt-git

misc commented on 2011-10-25 15:21

@tuxce: I'd say it is discouraged or contrary to etiquette at worst, but not non-standard. Still, the wiki page "Arch Packaging Standards" is a bit vaguely worded on the use of custom variables, particularly on their use in variables that the AUR reads.

tuxce commented on 2011-10-15 10:13

@dgbaley27, the old behavior was not intentional.
@misc, yaourt takes the version AUR gives. For those packages, versions are not standard.

misc commented on 2011-10-15 09:49

chromium-browser-ppa, chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra-ppa get perpetually listed as "Software upgrade":

Locally installed as "15.0.871.0.99583-1"
Yaourt/PQ/AUR lists "15.0.871.0~%~*}.svn20110904r9958"

dgbaley27 commented on 2011-10-14 20:12

I have two personal packages that are not on the AUR, so what was printed was:

Foreign packages: - 8 / 10

tuxce commented on 2011-10-14 19:16

I don't see what you mean.
eg: Foreign packages: - 10 / 10
It checked the 10 packages listed in "pacman -Qm"
(or do I miss something?)

dgbaley27 commented on 2011-10-14 18:47

I kind of liked how previously when searching foreign package, it only counted up the number of packages in the AUR. Was this changed intentionally?

Anonymous comment on 2011-09-10 10:33

pacman_4 branch of the yaourt git repo works with pacman 4.0.0 (pacman-git).

tuxce commented on 2011-09-07 07:19

:/ a regression in package-query-git...
fixed, please update it, thanks.

I've just had two parallel runs of yaourt (in two urxvtc, i. e. urxvtd clients), one properly ending its install of a fresh chromium-browser-bin package, the other beginning to install mkclean. For the latter I got:

The git repo appears to be down.

tuxce commented on 2011-03-28 19:19

Thanks, it's fixed

misc commented on 2011-03-28 16:23

There appears to be a minor bug in the listing of certain updatable packages. For instance:

/usr/lib/yaourt/abs.sh: line 267: printf: `~': invalid format character
aur/chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-nonfree-bin 12.0.716.0.79503-1 -> 12.0.717.0~

Jristz commented on 2011-03-24 06:43

pacman 3.5 is in [core] now
or make yaourt-git downloable by pacman or upgrade yaourt

or make anithing you stime conbenient

meijin commented on 2011-03-17 12:49

yaourt -Syu double times synching the db

Assaf

tuxce commented on 2011-03-07 15:16

No, it was a bug, fixed now.

misc commented on 2011-03-07 12:56

Is it desired behavior that yaourt -Sb appears to imply noconfirm (that is, skips asking for an pkgbuild edit)? I don't think it should be.

dlin commented on 2011-02-28 14:58

When I use yaourt to install aur package, it will automatic install dependency, but, I think it should add --asdeps option to let the dependency package be installed.

Synthead commented on 2010-12-10 05:31

Now it installs to /usr/bin. It must have been upstream :)

tuxce commented on 2010-12-07 09:21

It works for me. You modified something in the PKGBUILD or Makefile ?

Synthead commented on 2010-12-07 01:20

This just installed to /usr/local/bin :/

tuxce commented on 2010-09-23 18:22

I don't understand, you talk about installing yaourt-git or about another package ? Is there any error message ? At least, can you give an example ?

alexcortes commented on 2010-09-23 04:31

Hi, arch=('any') do not compile for me, only if arch=('i686' 'x86_64).

I installed package-query-git from the aur and when I try to install yaourt-git it claims that the dependency (package-query-git) is missing please help?

tuxce commented on 2010-05-27 21:34

corrected, thanks

Anonymous comment on 2010-05-27 17:33

did You noticed the mis-typed warning? :)

I did not, but my friend drew my attention to it

( Unsupported package: Potentally dangerous ! )

By the way: yaour is my favourite pacman/aur frontend.

Thanks!

tuxce commented on 2010-04-29 22:26

It's a git error, it normally shows commands to resolve it. (git config ...)
But in a default environment, you should have the necessary variables defined. (git var -l)
