@hearth Sorry, that was an oversight. Of course the paths changes as well, it should work now.

Updated, I hope the pkgver change this created doesn't lead to problems.

Please don't set the local repo name to 'anki-git'.

I recommend that you set it to 'anki'.

It is better to keep the original repo name, in case other PKGBUILDs (even stable ones) decide to use the git repo as source. (Otherwise, with custom naming, every git-source using packages will clone its own copy, even if a common SRCDEST is set.)

Also, after the recent repo URL change, makepkg will refuse to build if there is an existing clone: the new URL makes it think that it leads to a different repo.

Setting the local repo name to 'anki' eliminates that problem as well.

My previous error superisely disappears after disabling LTO.

Getting this error in a clean chroot:

  = note: /usr/bin/ld: /build/anki-git/src/anki-git/out/rust/release/deps/libzstd_sys-31396a3548e0e204.rlib: error adding symbols: file format not recognized
          collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

I experienced a similiar issue before .

A recent commit in Anki introduced the possibility to control which protoc binary is called via the environment variable PROTOC_BINARY. If not set, it will try to call the protoc binary at a place that does not exist. Please adapt the PKGBUILD so that the protoc binary from the python-protobuf is used. Thanks in advance!

Has anyone tried to build this package with docker?

For me it does fail with the following error. Not sure how to resolve this. All dependencies (including protobuf and python-protobuf) are installed. My build container is based on archlinux:base-devel. The full log can be viewed here.

This may be a Docker-specific issue, independent of the anki-git PKGBUILD file. Thanks for creating/maintaining that file!
