This package needs java-environment added to the makedepends array. The java-runtime from the depends array is not enough to build as it does not provide the jar command.

@drrossum Thanks for pointing this. No, I am using fish.

drrossum commented on 2017-02-08 08:13 (UTC)

Are you using csh? Because the profile.d/ should add the BASEX_HOME/bin to your PATH variable on a sh compatible shell.

Adding symlinks to the executable scripts of basex might be useful :) sudo ln -s /usr/share/java/basex/bin/* /usr/bin/

@maxf: hmmm... I have installed all 'java-runtime" stuff (jre8-openjdk-headless, jre8-openjdk, jdk8-openjdk) but I had no set default Java environment. So I used this: 'archlinux-java fix' and after that I installed BaseX from AUR package sucessfull without any problems :D Thanks!

maxf commented on 2016-05-12 11:25 (UTC)

@Admat81: You're missing 'java-runtime', which is missing as a dependency in this package. Install a JRE (for example jdk8-openjdk since you'll probably also want javac) to fix this.

When I try install it, I have ERROR: /tmp/yaourt-tmp-user/aur-basex/./PKGBUILD: line 39: jar: command not found A failure occurred in package(). Makepkg was unable to build basex. I'm new and I don't know, how to install it correctly :(

maxf commented on 2016-04-25 08:26 (UTC)

Since 'jar' is called as part of the build step, this package should depend on 'java-runtime' instead of 'java-environment-common'. Otherwise the build will fail in a clean chroot...

Minor issue. The icon path in BaseX.desktop is incorrect: /usr/share/java/basex/img/icon.png It should be: /usr/share/java/basex/img/logo_256.png

dmdobrowolski commented on 2015-03-18 11:53 (UTC)

Yes, now it is OK. Thank you.

drrossum commented on 2015-03-17 20:40 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out. Should be fixed now.

makepkg doesn't work for version 8.0.1-1 The error message says: install: cannot stat 'basex/license.txt': No such file or directory. ==> ERROR: A failure occured in package() Aborting...

pocafe commented on 2015-03-02 18:47 (UTC)

Latest is 8.0.1

drrossum commented on 2014-12-11 18:56 (UTC)

Make sure your java environment is setup correctly. See also this news item

ram4nd commented on 2014-12-11 12:12 (UTC)

Still getting the same error.

drrossum commented on 2014-10-17 14:02 (UTC)

This is related to the recent renaming of java packages. I've updated the dependencies.

7.9 is currently the latest.

fau commented on 2014-02-06 10:41 (UTC)

Latest is 7.7.2.

commented on 2011-11-28 08:32 (UTC)

Version 7.0.2 is available, please update.

chheien commented on 2011-08-12 23:56 (UTC)

I recently found out the java-dependent PKGBUILDs I've made should originally have had "-bin" to the end since they use prebuilt .jar files. Rather than rename all of them, I'm migrating them to be genuine "from-source" packages. In that case you're right. I'll need to replace java-runtime with jdk and add all dependent build libraries. I'll rewrite the 6.7.1 to be compiled instead of binary.

commented on 2011-08-12 14:21 (UTC)

Version 6.7.1 now available. Update please :)

commented on 2011-08-12 14:16 (UTC)

To makepkg you actually require jdk. Should jdk not be added to dependancies in this case...?

koromilaz commented on 2011-07-02 16:49 (UTC)

Did another one for the current version. PKGBUILD:

chheien commented on 2010-12-08 01:34 (UTC)

Changed to pulling from maven repo instead of SourceForge.

commented on 2010-11-26 07:28 (UTC)

There is a 6.3.2 release in the Maven repository of the project.
