It works, thanks.

AkechiShiro commented on 2023-03-04 17:27 (UTC)

Could you give it a try again @bjo ?

If it stills not work, try adding before the cd :

ls "$srcdir/$_pkgname/build/lib.linux-$CARCH"*/

And show me the output, I'm not sure why, there are some differences on some systems.

Still fails:

/data/build/.cache/aurutils/sync/borg-git/PKGBUILD: line 35: cd: /data/build/.cache/aurutils/sync/borg-git/src/borg/build/lib.linux-x86_64-3*/: No such file or directory

@stefmanf @alphajack

The issue should now be fixed, if you can confirm to me that's the case, thanks.

@stefmanf Your fix did not work on my end :

==> Starting check()...
# Output of ls "$srcdir/$_pkgname/build/lib.linux-$CARCH"*/



There are two folders, cd can take only one argument, I believe you meant :

cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname/build/lib.linux-$CARCH-3"*/

@AlphaJack I solved editing line 35 in PKGBUILD in this way

cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname/build/lib.linux-$CARCH"*/

I have the following folders instead:

Thanks to @aminvakil, package dependencies should be completely fixed for now, if anything else is missing, please feel free to comment, I'll do my best to add anything that is still missing.

Many packages are missing from depends, makedepends, checkdepends: Here is the fix

I've tried libdeflate-git from AUR and it builds. Thank you

Current build fails :

I've tried installing libdeflate from community, the build still fails, not sure if the BORG_LIBDEFLATE_PREFIX should be set to something specific in order to fix the build.
