Arch User Repository: 'tizonia-all' builds sometimes break during upgrades #485

During AUR's tizonia packages upgrades, the old package artifacts are already in the system directories when the build starts. This sometimes upsets the compilation of the new source code (e.g. when new APIs have been added in the new release, the old headers have no knowledge of them).

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Install release a
  2. upgrade to release a + b (where new APIs have been added)
  3. [and so on...]

Expected behavior:
Build proceeds reliably, as in a first install.

Actual behaviour:
Sometimes, the build breaks when using the old tizonia headers in the system (since no knowledge of the new APIs exist in those headers).

Reproduces how often:
E.g. between versions 12 -> 14.


versions 12 -> 14.

I'm closing this issue now.

Note that the root problem has not actually been fixed, but both Tizonia AUR packages now refuse to install if the 'tizonia' command is detected on the system.

See 1ad0fec

This will make users aware of this limitation and should hopefully prevent dissapointments.

Also, a note has been added in about the need to remove the old package before an upgrade.
