I wanted to install awesome window manager for Arch, however Arch repo does not include awesome anymore, I need to get from AUR.
Installing package is easier with yaourt. I found that makepkg -s cannot resolve dependency if the dependency is not found in Arch mirrorlist.
package-query is one of the dependency, and this package is not included in Arch mirrorlist. It must be more than 1.0, I found one which is 1.0.1-1.
Untar package-query and start to makepkg with dependency checking.
Install the made package with pacman -U
makepkg -s to make the package, then install using pacman -U

Awesome isn’t in yaourt anymore… do you know anything about it?
I really wanted to try it but I would like to install the stable version, not the git version 😦
Oh..really…I did not know it though… Thanks for the information.
When a package leaves the aur it usually means they put it in their official repos.
Thanks, helped me install yaourt manually.
