These legacy lines at the end of .install scripts cause issues when attempting to use dash as the default shell

$op $*

They should be removed.

Running "perl -0 -pi -e 's/op=\$1\nshift\n\$op \$\*//' PKGBUILD" should fix it I believe

  • Field changed: Summary ([extra] remove old .install file syntax → {extra} remove old .install file syntax)
Lots of rebuilds are done, but these three operations still persist on many packages. Looks like this task is ignored. Any objections on assigning to all?

I thought that these had been cleared from SVN? Anyway, if a list of packages with this syntax is made and added to my unimportant rebuild page [1], then I am happy with this closing.

Ooh, interesting, in svn trunk seems that are fixed. (I was looking in abs tree)
Right, so when all currents rebuilds "jpng" in [testing] will be moved-out, a list can be added to wiki ;)

Done: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=DeveloperWiki:Unimportant_Rebuild_List&diff=94641&oldid=94612

Seems that not all was fixed on SVN trunk, one example: "hplip".
