I believe python-pycodestyle and python-coverage might be madedepends

@raul_l: using lib64 does not work as lib64 is a symlink (which collides on install of a package trying to use lib64 as a directory)

For this package, it appears that using lib as CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR works around the bug in it's CMakeLists.txt.

@DanielRichtmann: it is an upstream bug (using ${CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR} like that is incorrect), but it's one we can workaround here.

Thank you both for looking into this issue.

With the latest version I get the ..from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded.. error. It appears to me that CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR should be given as a relative path,


Or I can just leave out that variable (defaults to lib64 in my case), which also works.

I just upgraded to 2.3.13 and stumbled across the following which prevents me from running bear without specifying the path to libear explicitly:



From CMakeLists.txt:


Combining these, we get DEFAULT_PRELOAD_FILE equal to /usr//usr/lib/bear/

Is this an issue in the PKGBUILD or should I submit an issue upstream?

Interesting. It compiles fine on my system.

Update please. This version has a bug with newlocale that was fixed in latest minor release.

Moritz, thanks for the fix!

Please note, that the new version 2.x dependencies were changed. It no longer depends on libconfig, and the executable is written in Python.
