Solid and Straight Forward. Thanks.

For the bug, try clean building, if it persists open an issue.

For the second point, see the FAQ.

Firstly, the following error pops up a lot when trying to upgrade certain AUR files: fatal: ambiguous argument 'HEAD': unknown revision or path not in the working tree. Use '--' to separate paths from revisions, like this: 'git <command> [<revision>...] -- [<file>...]'</file></revision>

Google Chrome is one of the packages affected by this bug.

Secondly, the previous package was easier since all options were selected at the start. In the current version, we have to wait for all core, extra, community and multilib packages to update first, and then select the AUR packages. This is not a biggie, but just annoying; whereas earlier it was smoother and an overall nicer experience.

When performing 'yay -Syua', if there are aur updates, it performs only these ones skipping the standard repository updates. You need to run the command once more to complete the upgrade. Thank you for the awesome work, btw!

EDIT: I figured out that running 'yay' is enough

It's part of the debug symbols the go compiler puts into the binary. If you manage to make Yay stack trace it will tell you which file the error occurred in. Using the pwd of where it was compiled.

Just got this warning when installing Yay.

==> WARNING: Package contains reference to $srcdir

It seems to be embedded in the yay binary.

$ grep -R "$(pwd)/src" pkg/ Binary file pkg/yay/usr/bin/yay matches

Yeah I found that, thanks :D

go get -u

The AUR repository just contains a pkgbuild. If you want to use go get you'll have to use the actual yay repo.

Can someone make this installable w/ Go?

go get -u
