Source link fixed, pkgrel bump omitted (no need for rebuilds in existing installs).

jkl commented on 2024-01-15 12:15 (UTC)

The link to the source is broken.

Please don't install anything under /usr/manual

I just noticed that this package installs its man pages under /usr/man/ instead of /usr/share/man, where they belong.

@fordperfect, @mortzu I've managed to build in a clean chroot and when comparing the configure output I noticed this:

When working in a clean chroot:

  setting INCLUDES to "-I."
  adding "-I$(top_srcdir)/os/$(OS_DIR)" to INCLUDES
  adding "-I$(top_srcdir)/include" to INCLUDES
  adding "-I/usr/include/apr-1" to INCLUDES
  adding "-I/usr/include" to INCLUDES

When failing on my system:

  setting INCLUDES to "-I."
  adding "-I$(top_srcdir)/os/$(OS_DIR)" to INCLUDES
  adding "-I$(top_srcdir)/include" to INCLUDES
  adding "-I/bin/apr-1-config//usr/include/apr-1" to INCLUDES
  adding "-I/usr/include/apr-1" to INCLUDES
  adding "-I/usr/include" to INCLUDES

Notice the added line with the junk include -I/bin/apr-1-config//usr/include/apr-1. This is taken directly from

$ apr-1-config --includes

So it seems the problem we're experiencing is with apr-1-config and in turn the package rather than this.

@gc1: Try building with makepkg in a clean chroot and report back if the error persists. I can't reproduce the error, so you'd need to provide a bit more info.

I get a different error in the build stage:

@mortzu: I'm happy to put it there but I'd like to understand why it might be necessary. Works with apr-1-config without specifying, and I fail to find any differing occurrence in the sources. Why do you believe /usr/bin/apr-config is being called anywhere?

mortzu commented on 2023-03-22 17:29 (UTC)

It worked after I replaced the configure line in PKGBUILD:

-    ./configure --prefix=/usr --sbindir=/usr/bin --with-pcre=/usr
+    ./configure --prefix=/usr --sbindir=/usr/bin --with-pcre=/usr --with-apr=/usr/bin/apr-1-config

On my system is no /usr/bin/apr-config

@mortzu: carsme reported the same issue before, but did not get back if solved. I can't reproduce the issue, so presumably the error is in your system. Try building in a clear chroot.
