@haawda, I was trying to understand why the versioned dependency was causing the build to fail (since this package should provide calibre>=5.15). Removing the version dependency just works around the issue, it doesn't explain why it's an issue in the first place

qubidt, no the git revision is not the culprit. Try to remove the versioned dependency in calibre-plugin-dedrm, i.e. change depends=('calibre>=5.15') to just depends=('calibre'), or add the version number in provides in calibre-git's PKGBUILD. Both should work.

What I want to ask: Is it just me for whom manpage creation fails? A hidden makedependency?

Might be missing pyqt6 makedepends

aur/calibre-plugin-dedrm fails to build/install because it has depends=('calibre>=5.15'). pacman considers it a missing dependency, even though calibre-git provides calibre and is at version 5.34.0.r5.g1127c285bb-1. It works when modifying the calibre-plugin-dedrm PKGBUILD to not specify a calibre dependency. I'm assuming it's failing because the version number of the package contains the git revision? But I don't see why it should since the first three segments of the version # should satisfy the comparison. Any thoughts?

The build stops when displaying this

Could not find QtWebEngineProcess

I have all the dependencies of calibre installed, as well as qt5-webengine (5.15.4-3) python-pyqtwebengine (5.15.4-1)

This has been previously requested on the bugtracker for community/calibre too (in that case, the user wanted calibre-server to be split out), and was just as invalid there.

calibre isn't multiple programs in one package. It is one unified codebase with a number of entry points into it. Qt5-base is used essentially everywhere. The conversion pipeline directly relies on a headless plugin with mandatory x11 client libraries, even though ebook-convert doesn't run in a GUI, but doesn't require a running xorg server. etc.

Inporting any part of the codebase will inevitably result in most or all of the dependencies being used, simply because a lot of functionality you might not think is related, nevertheless is.

Any way you could please split this package into separate ones, to allow installing Xorg-less utilities like calibredb on a server without pulling X11 dependencies?

I've pushed an update I've been experimenting with -- calibre-python3-git and calibre-git now depend on a "common" package, and you can install one or both as you wish. I'd still advise having the calibre2 version around, though...

eschwartz commented on 2019-11-15 02:24 (UTC)

Yeah, let me go rebuild my custom repo for python3.8 right now.
