[Solved] "source tarball may not contain nested subdirectories"

Hey guys,

I'm trying to upload (my first!) package to the AUR, however I'm getting the error "Error - source tarball may not contain nested subdirectories."

I've created the package using `makepkg --source`, it's just a single PKGBUILD file.

Running tar tvf looks fine:

$ tar tvf setcolors-git-0.0.0-1.src.tar.gz 
drwxr-xr-x root/root         0 2013-08-17 08:25 setcolors-git/
-rw-r--r-- root/root       685 2013-08-17 07:19 setcolors-git/PKGBUILD

I searched around, but it looks like only a few people had this issue, and it was due to SELinx (which I'm not using).

I must be missing something really simple and I'm sure I'll feel dumb.

Here's the tarball in question.

Re: [Solved] "source tarball may not contain nested subdirectories"

This bug seems to have been introduces shortly after 2013-08-17 10:39* which is the latest update, as updates are frequently added.
I to am unable to submit packages and I only did that a few days ago last time.

* I do not know which timezone the Arch website uses, but hopefully (for standardisatio and the duration this bug as lasted) it is UTC,
or the visitor local timezone.

makepkg is a part of pacman and has not been updated.

I just tested it, same problem (and I've done it plenty of times before). Seems to be an AUR bug.

Re: [Solved] "source tarball may not contain nested subdirectories"

Appears to be tied to the php 5.5 update. Stay tuned.

That avatar and what you just said... FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU--

Since it's scanning the tar file for unwanted alterations, I suppose the update messed that up, huh.

Re: [Solved] "source tarball may not contain nested subdirectories"

I'm also getting this error. The exact error thrown is:

Error - source tarball may not contain nested subdirectories.

I'm trying to submit this PKGBUILD: https://github.com/Ichimonji10/PKGBUILD … ybeans-git

And here's the contents of my package:

[ichimonji10@hardhack:tmp]$ ls
vim-jellybeans-git-v1.5.25.gc173b85-1.src.tar.gz
[ichimonji10@hardhack:tmp]$ tar tfv vim-jellybeans-git-v1.5.25.gc173b85-1.src.tar.gz 
drwxr-xr-x root/root         0 2013-08-17 11:55 vim-jellybeans-git/
-rw-r--r-- root/root      1094 2013-08-17 09:08 vim-jellybeans-git/LICENSE.txt
-rw-r--r-- root/root      1022 2013-08-17 11:39 vim-jellybeans-git/PKGBUILD

Ahhh I get that too, your tar isn't the problem (I think), like mr. developer said, it's probably PHP5.5 that's the problem, it's the site.

My theory is that PHP5.5 probably upgraded their parsing stuffs and the site's code just isn't compatible yet.
