Please dont use full git describe version in provides. Use tag version - provides=("babl=0.1.18")

It seems these tests are randomized, even. This means the package build may fail nondeterministically if there actually *is* an upstream bug.

jaseg commented on 2016-08-29 21:53

It seems this package runs a whole heap of tests ("tests/babl_fish_path_fitness") when building, taking up several minutes of single-core execution on a modest machine. It would be nice if that could be disabled.

@msx, this page documents the use of VCS sources in PKGBUILD files:

@diverse_izzue. thanks!
I have a doubt on how to correctly use new pacman's VCS capabilities, what exactly does these two variables:

_gitroot=GITURL
_gitname=babl

As it seems from looking the build script it seems they are automatically parsed by pacman, am I right? Thanks in advance :)

I have adopted this and updated the package. Let me know if things break.

I packed updated PKGBUILD and patch here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/x2yg3y - with gimp-git you always should use latest gegl-git and babl-git iirc

http://file.karelia.ru/46jn3q/ This is a package made from a while back. I had to look at the page well to see it there. will try. I found it from going to gimp-git:

just add 3 things to file. file with patch to sources, md5sum given by makepkg -g and line: "patch -p1 < ../name-of-patch.patch" in pkgbuild after cd $_gitname-build

yvonney commented on 2010-11-23 05:21

having trouble due to lack of skill patching the diff. any thoughts about using the nightly, which I've not had luck with. or option?

giniu commented on 2010-11-17 19:52

actually, it makes babl build but those files are not copied then which I found during building of gegl-git. There is another try: http://aur.pastebin.com/MQNyb77f - this time I just changed order and it both builds and installs the files.

giniu commented on 2010-11-17 19:35

it is quite some time already - I made simple patch - http://aur.pastebin.com/chxnJQW1 - maybe we use it before it's fixed upstream?

lucianolorenti commented on 2010-11-10 14:42

try this patch

looks like an upstream problem. Just wait.

Anonymous comment on 2010-11-04 17:57

Look like broken now.

Cleaned up PKGBUILD http://pastie.org/1033984

Anonymous comment on 2010-07-04 06:27

needs to handle first time builds better
'rm -rf "$srcdir/$_gitname-build"' to '[ ! -d "$srcdir/$_gitname-build" ] || rm -rf "$srcdir/$_gitname-build"'
that way first time builders don't get an error for trying to remove a directory that isn't there.

should be rm -rf there just as in the earlier section ... the same change needs to be made in the gegl-git package

Anonymous comment on 2010-06-18 12:22

I understand, I will update my PKGBUILD soon, thanks for the hint :)

==> Starting make...
rm: cannot remove `/home/ranguvar/tmp/pkgs/babl-git/src/babl-build': No such file or directory
Aborting...


Fixed by removing the rm -r under `msg "Starting make...`.
I believe that error may be because I'm using Pacman 3.4.0 from [testing].
gegl-git has the same problem.
