Hey hey, I still find the same issues pointed out by @Uroc327 on 2018-10-23. The example CmakeLists.txt as suggested by the AWS developers to build one's own applications fails. Now it's line 112 instead of 127. Can someone suggest a fix? Apparently binaries and libraries are searched for in something like: /usr/lib/<platform_prefix>/library.a Only the <platform_prefix> is not created, libraries reside in: /usr/lib/library.a Thanks!

Example minimal CMakeLists.txt cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.2) project(polly_test) find_package(AWSSDK REQUIRED COMPONENTS aws-cpp-sdk-core aws-cpp-text-to-speech) add_executable(polly_test polly_test.cpp) target_link_libraries(polly_test ${AWSSDK_LINK_LIBRARIES}) End of minimal CMakeLists.txt ***

@ETHIN the build issues are directly related to some refactoring in their code base where they're attempting to make things more "modular" but are running into the classic chicken-vs-egg catch22. I've been keeping my eye on the github issues and I'll introduce a fix when the devs have settled on unbreaking how it used to build.

The reason you had to run sudo using the current PKGBUILD is because one of the subpackages it wants during build-time is aws-checksums. The issue here is because they're using the cmake variable -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX incorrectly and the build process is attempting to create the path /usr/include/aws/checksums on the live system as opposed using the staged setup created by makepkg/fakeroot during packaging.

This package fails to build on latest arch; I had to modify the PKGBUILD to run almost all the commands as sudo because of it. (The CMake apparently tries to install packages during configuration.) I'd highly recommend either finding a workaround to this problem, or making it build and install with sudo privileges, unless this is somehow fixed.

The provided cmake file seems to be unable to find the core library. For example when building the cpp/example_code/s3 example from the cmake command gives the following error:

CMake Error at /usr/lib64/cmake/AWSSDK/AWSSDKConfig.cmake:127 (message):
  AWS SDK for C++ headers found, but we were unable to locate the binaries.
  Have you deleted or moved it?

              Please make sure header files and binaries are located in INSTALL_ROOT_DIR/INCLUDE_DIR/ and INSTALL_ROOT_DIR/LIB_DIR/[PLATFORM_PREFIX]/[Debug|Config|OtherConfigs]
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  CMakeLists.txt:15 (find_package)

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

Why is this built with -DNO_HTTP_CLIENT=1 option? Wouldn't most people want it on by default, especially since curl is required anyway?

@fuzzy2 @big_gie thanks for the feedback, changes have been merged.

big_gie commented on 2017-05-25 19:46

Here's a diff with:
1. Don't use an old version in the directory name, as suggested by fuzzy2
2. Install the libraries into /usr/lib (not /usr/lib64) as to prevent collision.

Could you please upload a lib32- version as well?

m3thodic commented on 2016-09-29 20:05

Updated version, commented out the part that builds the package version on-the-fly (I'll only use for updates). Thanks!

fuzzy2 commented on 2016-09-28 09:14

The package is currently broken, it downloads a newer Git commit than expected. Consider either removing the commit-ish from the folder name or pinning the commit.
