Target not found: git


#21

I guess you are right. It would make sense. Altough it does not have it as an optional dependency.


#22

You would be surprised as how many people end up showing they were installing something else entirely, especially with software with many related packages like chrome is.

google-chrome-stable doesn’t exist. I’m assuming you mean google-chrome.

So, the pkgbuild file for that package doesn’t suggest any git dependency, directly or indirectly. And I just know for a fact that the google-chrome-stable.sh file that is also downloaded doesn’t have a git requirement. This clearly indicates some requirement being generated by pamac itself. But I don’t use pamac, so someone else needs to confirm this.


#23

It’s not being cloned.

source=("google-chrome-${_channel}_${pkgver}_amd64.deb::https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-${_channel}_current_amd64.deb"
        'eula_text.html'
        "google-chrome-$_channel.sh")

[...]


package() {
  msg2 "Extracting the data.tar.xz..."
  bsdtar -xf data.tar.xz -C "$pkgdir/"
  [...]

I talk about the AUR git repository… where pamac find the PKGBUILD and all other files…
pamac use git to get them.

according pamac source:

// check git needed to build pkgs
if (Alpm.find_satisfier (alpm_handle.localdb.pkgcache, "git") == null) {
	to_install += "git";
} else {
	// remove the needed pkg from to_remove
	backup_to_remove.remove ("git");
}

it seeems it check the package cache… isn’t it empty after installation??, then it will want to install it and it did not find it in pacman database.


#25

do you think is a gnome edition related issue or a general one?
