Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

Hi Alad,
I am once more stumped as to how to work with aur utils. The old way to remove stuff from the repo no longer works for me:

sudo repo-remove /var/cache/pacman/aur/aur.files.tar firefox-developer
==> ERROR: '/var/cache/pacman/aur/aur.files.tar' does not have a valid database archive extension.

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

Why are you running with sudo? The repo directory and db it contains should be owned by your user.

As to your issue, you're working on the .files database (for pacman -F), not the actual database. i.e. try

repo-remove /var/cache/pacman/aur/aur.db.tar firefox-developer

instead of

repo-remove /var/cache/pacman/aur/aur.files.tar firefox-developer

If that works create an alias to avoid these issues in future.

alias rremove='repo-remove /var/cache/pacman/aur/aur.db.tar'

Thanks Alad, I tried this in my vain attempts to get this to work.

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

man repo-remove wrote:

       A package database is a tar file, optionally compressed. Valid
       extensions are “.db” followed by an archive extension of “.tar”,
       “.tar.gz”, “.tar.bz2”, “.tar.xz”, or “.tar.Z”. The file does not need
       to exist, but all parent directories must exist.

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

Really, now you've that Alad guy left out the .db, see the man quote above...

EDIT: That post should have been directed at me... hmm

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

You didn't set up an alias called repo-remove did you?

type repo-remove
pacman -Qkk pacman

aurutils 1.5.3-5

Thanks for all your help, but I guess aurutils is somehow overkill for what I want to do and somehow I always run into these weird issues. I should probably switch to something else.

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

Local repositories are a more complex apparatus than the usual foreign packages, so there's more details to keep in mind. In this case the error is likely related due to previous use of repose, which is not compatible to repo-add.

Uninstalling repose and rebuilding the database with repo-add should do the trick, see https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 9#p1707649

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

That did the trick, thanks. I guess I should switch to something else and no longer bother you with those issues. This one was clearly my fault.

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

It doesn't bother me - the reason behind the error was non-trivial, and aurutils 1.5 still supports both repose and repo-add.

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

Hello Alad,
thank you for aurutils tool.
I read the manual, but i don't find an information: how to clean cache please ?
I have 4Go on my home/user/.cache/aursync directory. I would like to clear this cache (i think something like pacman -Scc, but for aurutils tools).
Thank you

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

If you set your repositories up as a pacman cache, as described in the manual, you can clean the repositories using pacman -Sc. Just answer no for the normal cache and yes for the aurutils cache (be sure to use -Sc and not -Scc as the second will nuke your cache/repository).

That wasn't the question, the question is about the cached PKGBUILD etc.

If you use a shared $SRCDEST in makepkg.conf then you can clean everything in one directory. As for ~/.cache/aursync, this is quite small and keeping it around lets you diff between what you've previously reviewed and the new changes... so I'm not sure what especial utility there is in adding an additional option to purge it...

Alternatively you can leverage that every package is a git repository:

find ~/.cache/aursync -type d -name .git -execdir git clean -xi \;

This assumes you're not using -t (which I suggest not using anyway, since you lose the ability to diff)

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

I'd be remiss if I didn't recommend aurutils now that pacaur is no longer being maintained. This tool-set is truly an incredible suite of AUR utilities. The idea and philosophy behind this AUR helper sets it apart from all others; specifically, housing AUR packages in a separate repository (or repositories).  Using aurutils just feels right.

Also, I'm a very inexperienced user of both Arch / Linux in general and I was able to get up and running with aurutils; it's very much worth the effort to read the man pages and experiment with the tools to set up your configuration. You'll be very happy you did.

Thanks Alad!

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

Hey,

I'm wondering why each time I build a package and repo-add is ran again, I get a NULL package in the log:

copied '/var/tmp/aurbuild.sXi9mwRa/grive-0.5.0-8-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' -> '/home/terence/.cache/pacman/aur/grive-0.5.0-8-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' (archive : '/home/terence/.cache/pacman/aur/grive-0.5.0-8-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz~')
'/var/tmp/aurbuild.sXi9mwRa/grive-0.5.0-8-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' supprimé
adding (null) (null)
adding libc++abi 5.0.1-1
adding libreoffice-uglyfix-freetype2 2.8.1-1
adding skypeforlinux-bin 8.13.76.4-1
[...]

I'm also wondering if it's normal to see all the already synced packages being added over the db again, thus taking a while at the db writing step.

Thanks!

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

This is happening because you aren't using repo-add, you're using repose. wink

Thanks for the answer, I'm not sure to understand what you mean tho. I have repose installed and I didn't know repoctl was a thing.
Thanks for the link, I guess it would be better to remove repose then.

Re: aurutils - helper tools for the aur

Makes more sense now ^^
I removed repose and I'm waiting for a package to finish building to see how it goes (it wasn't installing a package after aurbuild-ing/aursync-ing one or is it the expected behaviour?)
Maybe repose should be removed from the man pages if it creates troubles (that's what made me install it) ?
