I am using yaourt, not yaourt-git, and I see that you are right. Sorry about that, I guess the next version of yaourt will include this commit and hence be fixed. However, depending on how long until its release, maybe a patch should still be made in the meantime. I tend to rely on those comments, and this issue is an annoyance, possibly for others as well.

@joe1984 Are you using yaourt or yaourt-git? The first doesn't have the commit you mentioned; if you're using the latter, why are you commenting here and not on the yaourt-git package?

Most of the comments that usually show up when installing a package aren't showing up. This appears to be due to this commit in December ( Reverting this commit by changing the file src/lib/ seems to have fixed the problem. I guess a patch file could be made.

@Xeno_Idaltu: I've never heard that, so I keep yaourt installed when I upgrade pacman, and have no problems.

I was once told to remove Yaourt when upgrading Pacman. Reintall Yaourt after Pacman's full system upgrade.

Does anyone keep Yaourt and upgrade Pacman without any problems?

@mxfm It is true. Same goes for pacaur.

@sicariusnoctis AFAIK the archlinux policy (described in the wiki) is not to make anything AUR related as official, which includes not moving aur helpers to core repo. If this is true, yaourt will never be in official repos.

Say that in #archlinux. They might disagree ^^.

I was the 3000th vote :D

Even with all its failings, yaourt should probably be in the official repos due to its insane demand.

When I upgrade my system,I got "error: failed to update archlinuxfr(error invoking external downloader)".Any help?
