problem installing padre

hi guys. i am new to arch, and currently i ve installed it in a virtualbox, so as to test it before i migrate. i was trying to install through yaourt the editor "padre", running

yaourt padre

However this error came up:

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Wx-Perl-ProcessStream-0.30.tar.gz
    Aborting...
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build perl-wx-perl-processstream.

i downloaded the package from aur manually, and tried to install it, running "makepkg -s" but only to come against the same error. Finally i downloaded the tarball, installed it from there running "..., make, make install" and tried to reintall padre with yaourt, but again yaourt thought that this dependency was not installed on my system, and tried to install it with the same error again. Any indeas would be appreciated. Thank you smile

The message is pretty clear. The perl-wx-perl-processstream source entry is broken. Judging by the AUR comments, it needs to be version 0.32.

That is no surprise, is it? Since you did not install it via pacman (or yaourt) how would pacman know that it is installed? I suggest that you stop using yaourt for a while until you have a good understanding of how makepkg and pacman works together smile as tdy said, the error just means you have to correct the source-array in the PKGBUILD to point to the actual source wink

Re: problem installing padre

if i dont use yaourt, how would install from aur?

as tdy said, the error just means you have to correct the source-array in the PKGBUILD to point to the actual source wink

i dont even know what this means, or how to do it. just curious, does this happen often?

Re: problem installing padre

Trilby, i ve already read the wiki about aur.  from what i understand, i can't manually install the 50 dependencies of padre, until i gain some knowledge on yaourt. Moreover, i don't think that i tried to do something quite complicated. Don't get me wrong here, but the whole idea of a package manager is that exists, so you wouldn't have to mess with the dependencies. Or, so i thought. So by posting me a link on how to make smart questions, by not giving me a smart answer, is not helping. It is actually quite insulting.

Re: problem installing padre

Arch's package manager (pacman) is for installing from the repos (which contains binary packages). The AUR is not a binary repo and is "unsupported".
As for changing the source, you just edit the PKGBUILD which itself is a text file:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD

Re: problem installing padre

Clearly you did not read the content of the links I provided only the titles - and that is quite insulting.  Now perhaps this section is most relevant:
http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-ques … not_losing

"I don't even know what this means, or how to do it" is almost exactly the same as the bad example in the link I provided previously - but it also provided a good example ... which you chose not to read/follow.

Arch is not a "hand-holding" distro.  Users are expected to do some of their own work when pointed in the right direction.

Re: problem installing padre

ok, the original (and only) hint i got was "you have to correct the source-array in the PKGBUILD to point to the actual source". Yes i know arch is not beginner friendly. yes, i know pacman is the official package manager. yes i ve read the links trillby sent. But i have a few objections. what trillby sent, is the standard flaming-starting link some linux-warmonger would sent to someone not only to start a quarrel, but also to hide his apparent ignorance on a forum's subject and keep scoring posting points nonetheless. and let me elaborate on this. padre, a well-known editor, is not on the official repo so i can use pacman (ffs). aur, the (from what i get) unofficial repo based on user submitions contains out-of-date packages. i tried asking the arch forum, how to fix this, someone told me to change the PKGBUILD, and when i tried to ask back "to what?", someone, just happened to pop up, and say "hey Lucas, you must ask the right question. the power is within you!". Is it standard procedure for you, not only to not help beginners, but also start forum flaming with them? As far as i am concerned, you can just delete the entire thread and forum account, cause i don't think i will waste any more time, trying to install a linux version, where i can't work a plain editor. Have fun with the next one. smile

ps. trillby, there is no RTFM on how to change the PKGBUILD so that it points to the right source. if you don't know the answer to a question, then please don't answer. if you just get 4000 posts, won't get you a medal or something.

Re: problem installing padre

Actually there is both a man page and a wiki page on that.  But by all means, keep being an ass and see how much help it gets you.

Re: problem installing padre

All right. To prevent you from those 3520 more posts I'll close this thread now.

steinach2810 please do as adviced. Read the documentation and try to understand what happens. It is not that hard. If any questions remain come back and ask to the point.
