[SOLVED] How is Pacaur supposed to work?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello. I've chosen Pacaur as my AUR helper, since it's described to be like how I want an AUR helper to be.

Though most of the time it doesn't work.

This is what I get:
Code:
[xeekei@tank ~]$ pacaur -sy chromium-pepper-flash-stable
:: resolving dependencies...
:: looking for inter-conflicts...
grep: /tmp/pacaurtmp-xeekei/chromium-pepper-flash-stable/PKGBUILD: No such file or directory
grep: /tmp/pacaurtmp-xeekei/chromium-pepper-flash-stable/PKGBUILD: No such file or directory

AUR Packages  (1):

Name                              Old Version       New Version     

aur/chromium-pepper-flash-stable                    2:11.9.900.117-2               

:: Proceed with installation? [Y/n] 

:: View chromium-pepper-flash-stable PKGBUILD? [Y/n] n
:: Building chromium-pepper-flash-stable package...
/usr/bin/pacaur: line 634: cd: /tmp/pacaurtmp-xeekei/chromium-pepper-flash-stable: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/makepkg: xrealloc: cannot allocate 18446744071562068032 bytes (897024 bytes allocated)
:: Could not clean chromium-pepper-flash-stable

What am I missing? Is there something I'm supposed to do manually? I don't get it. frown.gif

Never used pacaur so can't help there specifically, but the package works in yaourt, so it's not a problem with the AUR release.

That's all fine. I imagine there's some kind of workflow detail I'm missing that is automated in Yaourt. Or it really is a bug. I hope somebody can help me out, Google doesn't give me anything.

UPDATE:
It works flawlessly if I download and extract the PKGBUILD manually, but that defeats the purpose of an AUR helper. At least now I know the problem lies in the downloading part of the process.

You're doing it wrong. You're basically asking pacaur to search and install at the same time. Pass one operation at a time, or alternatively use the regular set of commands (pacaur -Ss pkg, pacaur -S pkg).

Most AUR helpers are just wrappers for pacman, use them as you would pacman.

Yes. I misinterpreted Pacaur's man pages. I wrote:
Code:
pacaur -sy foo

While it should be:
Code:
pacaur -y foo

It worked after that. Thank you, people. smile.gif
