Seems the man location problem persists. Building fails.

dark-saber commented on 2017-04-04 08:55

Man locations have changed upstream, relevant PKGBUILD section should be changed to something like:

msg2 'Installing bitcoin-daemon...'
install -Dm755 "$srcdir/$_gitname/src/bitcoind" "$pkgdir/usr/bin/bitcoind"
install -Dm644 "$srcdir/$_gitname/contrib/debian/examples/bitcoin.conf" "$pkgdir/usr/share/doc/$pkgname/examples/bitcoin.conf"
install -Dm644 "$srcdir/$_gitname/doc/man/bitcoin-cli.1" "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1/bitcoin-cli.1"
install -Dm644 "$srcdir/$_gitname/doc/man/bitcoin-qt.1" "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1/bitcoin-qt.1"
install -Dm644 "$srcdir/$_gitname/doc/man/bitcoind.1" "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1/bitcoind.1"
install -Dm644 "$srcdir/$_gitname/doc/man/bitcoin-tx.1" "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1/bitcoin-tx.1"

I don't see bitcoin.conf.5 man now, but there is a bitcoin-tx.1 one.

Updated to compile for QT5 and include required QT5 dependencies

Let me know if there are any issues!

Raansu commented on 2015-08-01 14:33

I'm going to take over just to keep bitcoin-git from disappearing when AUR4 is fully switched on.

@Nothing4You I can make you a co-maintainer if you so wish, just let me know.

@Naypam I have updated the db4.8 package, everything 'should' work now.

Naypam commented on 2015-04-24 10:58

@Nothing4You: The db4.8 package is completely broken.

Naypam commented on 2015-04-24 10:57

I was told that "qrencode" was an orphan after installation while it's necessary for the running of the node. Not sure if that's an issue here or not?

You need to learn how to use the AUR. If the dependencies are not available through pacman it usually means they're in the AUR.
You have to install db4.8 from the AUR:

Sorry, couldn't get back to you earlier.
You seem to be using an old PKGBUILD.
Please download the package again.

Nothing4You commented on 2014-04-10 06:07

Ah, somehow I missed that new autogen, I'll fix it later today.

sed: makefile.unix: No such file or directory
By now, you need to call, configure, make, make install.

Nothing4You commented on 2014-04-09 21:35

Couldn't take a closer look as I'm not on arch right now, from a simple look at the bitcoin build instructions I can't see why this wouldn't work anymore, care to explain?

as qt5 is out and bitcoin doesn't yet support qt5 qmake-qt4 should be used instead of qmake

krevedko commented on 2012-06-12 15:42

I've removed "obsoleted"-flag; works for me.

krevedko commented on 2011-10-28 22:22

updated to 0.5.0 branch: wxgtk-2.9 -> qt4, shallow git-clone to save some bandwidth
