Consider before asking for support:

Yet AnOther User Repository Tool. Yaourt is a community-contributed wrapper for pacman which adds seamless access to the AUR, allowing and automating package compilation and installation from your choice of the thousands of PKGBUILDs in the AUR, in addition to the many thousands of available Arch binary packages. Yaourt uses the same exact syntax as pacman, which saves you from relearning an entirely new method of system maintenance, but also adds new options. Yaourt expands the power and simplicity of pacman by adding even more useful features and provides pleasing, colorized output, interactive search mode, and much more.


First, install the "base-devel" package, so that you won't miss utilities like gcc or make later on.

# pacman -S base-devel

Then follow instructions on http://archlinux.fr/yaourt-en#get_it

Proxy Settings

If you access the Internet through HTTP Proxy, you may have to set environment variables 'http_proxy' and 'https_proxy' in your ~/.bashrc (setting only the http proxy will make unable to get package from AUR) :

export http_proxy='http://proxy.hostname.com:port'
export https_proxy='https://proxy.hostname.com:port'

For more info check curl's man page.

'sudo' does not keep environment variables like 'http_proxy', so if you use it, you have to add:

Defaults env_keep += "http_proxy"
Defaults env_keep += "https_proxy"

to /etc/sudoers (Note: It is better not to add directly, instead use visudo)

Using yaourt

Detecting previous builds for dev PKGBUILDs

Julien Mischkowitz's (maintainer of yaourt) directions on how to get yaourt to detect previous build attempts for dev packages (CVS, SVN, Bzr, etc.):

 This part is very old in yaourt and maybe needs to be updated :-)
 Actually, yaourt search for variable ${_bzrtrunk} and ${_bzrmod} to detect if the PKGBUILD is one for a git/svn/bzr/cvs version.
 So just replace "_bzr_branch='http://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/r/emacs/trunk'" by "_bzrtrunk='http://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/r/emacs/trunk'"

That is, be sure to have _${VCS}trunk and _${VCS}mod variables present in your PKGBUILD; i.e., _bzrtrunk and _bzrmod for Bzr packages, _hgtrunk and _hgmod for Mercurial packages, _gittrunk and _gitmod for Git, etc.

Yaourt asking for password twice

If you disable the sudo password timeout by adding

Defaults timestamp_timeout=0

to /etc/sudoers, then yaourt will ask for your password twice each time you try to perform an operation that requires root. To prevent this, add:


to /etc/yaourtrc or to $HOME/.yaourtrc
