Continuing the discussion from
Installing pandoc on pinebook pro
Hi, how is this actually done?
5.8.3-2-MANJARO-ARM on a pbp.
When I go to install any package from the AUR via
yay that isn’t included in basic community, I inevitably run into architecture related errors for anything not found in Community repositories.
Click here for example with Wordgrinder-git
$ yay wordgrinder
2 aur/wordgrinder-git 0.7.1.r13.ge81cb70-1 (+2 0.00)
A word processor which gets the hell out of your way and lets you get some work done.
1 aur/wordgrinder 0.7.2-1 (+34 0.00)
A word processor for processing words.

-> The following packages are not compatible with your architecture:
Hopefully this is a simple example since other packages require a number of incompatible dependencies. I’m still learning about editing pkgbuilds  for aarch64 and wondering how I actually go about editing them properly in order to install with yay. Any guidance appreciated in wrapping my head around it.
