pamac build (package_name)
Failed to query https://aur.archlinux.org/rpc/?v=5&type=info&arg=(package_name) from AUR: Socket I/O timed out
Error: target not found: (package_name)
I have read
Pamac AUR support sucks, has this DDOS issue 17 days ago fixed?
(I cannot answer at the original post as it has been closed)
I use much AUR packages as typora, visual-studio-code-bin (
I do not use Code-OSS), ds9
here is not a ddos problem
you can test good url , for example
I used to use
yay but after:
Hardware detection seems to be another advantage Manjaro packaging has over yay. Once I used yay for installing video drivers. It worked but the driver info wasn’t showing up on the Hardware Configuration page. Not crucial I guess but definitely annoying.
I switched to
pamac is so
uneasy to use(does not support auto-AUR, sometimes I/O timed out, clicking AUR, I even cannot find vscode the first time till I clicked update and clicked AUR), maybe I should switch back to
I think the maintainers have under-estimated the security of AUR, maybe a few more choices?
So why is the
Socket I/O timed out? It does not happen all the time.
timed out ?
server no response (after xx time), its not a pamac error but your connexion or aur server
OK so its my problem, not pamac’s?
Can I set aururl reverse proxy on pamac?
yay --aururl "https://aur.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn" --save
I do not find any config files or commands on pamac which supports this.
No, but apparently there’s the cause of your socket timeout. Turn off your Great Firewall.
Perhaps open an
issue requesting the feature.
Thanks! I use VPN but it seems to do nothing about this.
I have made an issue:
I’m sorry, I’m going to have to refer you to GFW technical support.
It’s neither an issue with Manjaro nor Aurweb.
