What do you think - is the category correct?
It's a downloader, it does not play the multimedia stuff.
Also the functionality evolves more and more to become a general scraper tool.
Does a different category match better, or is "multimedia" still ok?

...PKGBUILD now uses $pkgver in url of source-entry.
No need for creating the package again.

Many new features and some bugfixes.

No, they are not out of date.
They just follow the defaults of what the AUR people (TU's?) want to have.

Please see here:

OK, that explains it. Yes, I installed these packages today.

I had the impression from the wiki that 'META' files can replace 'staticlibs' somehow.

So basically many of these packages are out-of-date. (They are not marked as such.)

oriba commented on 2014-03-07 13:54

No, the problem looks like the static library-files were not installed.
You need to recompile the libraries, and add
'staticlibs' into the options-array of the PKGBUILD.

I may later do it in an update of the libraries I maintain,
but ocaml-curl for example is maintained not by me.

The problem is, that the default for makepkg has changed, and staticlibs
are now by default *not* installed, which is diefferent to some time ago.
staticlibs is deprecated by the Arch-people, so normally it should not be added.
But a package maintainer can change this and add staticlibs.
or a cuser can do it, editing the PKGBUILD before builkding the package.

So for all libraries, that make these problems,
a PKGBUILD-editing is necessary.

Probably need to make use of OCAMLFIND_DESTDIR in PKGBUILD. See OCaml Package Guidelines. (/usr/lib/ocaml/curl/META, etc. are installed). Now it fails to install:

-ccopt -Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro -o any-dl \

jsteel, hey, thanks for pointing me to this. I changed it.
Hopefully it's correctly now following the guidelines of Arch/AUR/...

jsteel commented on 2013-06-28 19:06

Please remove the use of the $HOME variable; a PKGBUILD should NEVER touch this. In this case the user should manually copy the file from a valid location if it is not created/copied automatically by the software. You can specifiy this in an .install file.

oriba commented on 2013-05-17 20:37

OK, changed Makefile to create ELF and added some changes to the PKGBUILD (bugfixes).
Should work now.
Any further hints for pakageing are welcome (e.g. I hope, th rc-file backup is working...).
