Fixed PKGBUILD for fitsverify

simona commented on 2024-02-29 10:02 (UTC) /usr/bin/fitsverify exists in filesystem (owned by cfitsio) same error

It looks like installing / updating no longer works due to a conflict with cfitsio:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) /usr/bin/fitsverify exists in filesystem (owned by cfitsio)

Doing the opposite, by having installed and updating cfitsio gives the same error (but complaining that owns the file).

The solve-field function currently fails with "attributeerror: 'NoPyfits' object has no attribute 'open'". I'm guessing it's somehow related to this (maybe Arch's Astropy is compiled without fistio? idk), but it can be fixed with installing python-fitsio from AUR.

Also, the thing complains about astrometry.cfg not being in the right place, although it's very much in /etc/astrometry.cfg as it should be. Symlinking to /usr/sbin/astrometry.cfg (per the error's trace) works, but maybe this could be addressed in PKGBUILD?

0.94 is out.

Please update the package so it can be built with default settings common today (parallel build). did not compile here ever, and the fix is a simple as

-    make SYSTEM_GSL=yes all py extra
+    make -C util config
+    make SYSTEM_GSL=yes all
+    make SYSTEM_GSL=yes py
+    make SYSTEM_GSL=yes extra

Please consider adding this to this AUR pkg.

Thanks so much for this. I had not understood the comment until your patient explanation. Transaction successfully finished!

@Lightwell - follow angelsl's comment. Before installing, edit the PKGBUILD, go to the build() section, and replace the make SYSTEM_GSL line there with the four lines in their comment:

make -C util config
make SYSTEM_GSL=yes all
make SYSTEM_GSL=yes py
make SYSTEM_GSL=yes extra

Then it'll work

Still not compiling on Manjaro with message

make: *** [Makefile:117: libkd-spherematch] Error 2 make[1]: Leaving directory '/var/tmp/pamac-build-richardh/' ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

I note that @pozar87 has managed to make it work - can the revised MAKEFILE be posted?

Many thanks
