[solved] Aur package shall depend on rustc and not on rust

Hi,

i have created the package read-it-later-git[0]. It depends on rustc rather than rust. Currently i have rust as a dependency in the PKGBUILD. But rustup, which satisfies the dependency, does not include rustc.

Is there a way to correctly model this dependency on rustc?

What do you mean? Both extra/rust and community/rustup provide /usr/bin/rustc.

The AUR renders this as such:

Dependencies (6)
-------------------------
[...]
rust (rust-i586-git, rust-git, rust-mrustc, rust-bin, rustup-git, rust-nightly, rust-nightly-bin, rustup) (make)

Note the last provider...

i did receive a different comment from @The-Compiler:

FWIW, when trying to install this with "rustup" from [community] installed (which provides "rust"), I got:

meson.build:1:0: ERROR: Unknown compiler(s): ['rustc']

However, replacing rustup with rust worked, so that might be an issue on my side.

Re: [solved] Aur package shall depend on rustc and not on rust

And have you replicated or confirmed that problem?  You really should have started with the symptoms rather than your assumed cause and solution.  This is the very definition of an X-Y problem.

EDIT: I could replicate the error if I installed but did not do anything to configure rustup.  Of course that's silly given what rustup is.  Once I initialized rustup according to our wiki page, it worked fine to build your AUR package.

You are right. Sorry and thank you for your investigation.
