Shouldn't aura search instead of now that aur4 is the standard? commented on 2015-08-08 14:44

Cannot upgrade some packages, getting:
aura: Cannot decode byte '\x6e': Data.Text.Internal.Encoding.streamDecodeUtf8With: Invalid UTF-8 stream

I too am getting @Binero's problem. Very often getting "FailedConnectionException." Specifically on the package "advcp", Nearly every time.

When I attempted cross compilation some time ago it was quite a pain in the neck. Perhaps it's better now.

Would love an i686 package as well: I still have an older system or two that would benefit from this.

Wow, so grateful this exists. I was stuck in an infinite dependancy loop...

I'd be grateful for providing a i686 package.
Even with [haskell-core] building aura is annoying.

Binero commented on 2014-12-31 12:55

I'm getting these quite often while running aura:
aura: FailedConnectionException "" 443

Why's that?

@aliencam: That's just the AUR incorrectly parsing the PKGBUILD, not to worry :)

@FSMaxB: Thanks for those instructions. Luckily, Aura2 (in development) won't have this architecture restriction :)

@fosskers: It is possible to build i686 packages on a x86_64 system without the using a cross compiler. Just create a i686 container:

1. Create a copy of /etc/pacman.conf and change the architecture to i686 ( not auto )
2. Install the container using "pacstrap -d -C pacman.conf.copy /mnt/mycontainer_directory"
3. Boot into the container using "systemd-nspawn -bD /mnt/mycontainer_directory"
4. After logging in, change /etc/pacman.conf so that the architecture is once again "i686" instead of auto. It's important not to install any package before doing so.
5. Now you can use it just like a regular arch installation and build your packages inside it. If you want to stop the container, just shut it down with shutdown or systemctl poweroff.

I hope these instructions will allow you to build i686 packages.
