With the new makepkg defaults including LTO this will fail to compile. The PKGBUILD needs e.g. either:

You need to add 'git+' to the ource array and handle it analogously to stex and zlib subrepos

I needed to run makepkg this way to build chez-scheme-git:

LANG=C makepkg

Thanks jonathon, just pushed a new pkgrel.

jonathon commented on 2020-02-14 17:15 (UTC)

xproto isn't in the repos any more but xorgproto should work fine:

I get the following build error when I try to build this package with yay:

install: cannot create regular file '/home/docker/.cache/yay/chez-scheme-git/pkg/chez-scheme-git/usr/lib/csv9.5.1/ta6le/kernel.o': No such file or directory.

jonathon commented on 2019-03-21 23:21 (UTC)

Upstream have tagged 9.5.2 and opened 9.5.3 for development. It also looks like the make install step puts kernel.o and scheme.h in place now, so here's a diff:

Newer builds work for me, too, so the issue was upstream or on my side. Anyway, thanks for testing.

ecraven commented on 2019-01-18 10:06 (UTC)

I just built it, seems to build fine.

Upstreams last commit 68e20f7 seems to be a bad one. Can someone confirm?

Up to yesterday I had no problem building this.

jonathon commented on 2017-10-15 20:08 (UTC)

Ah, this is building nicely for me now. :) The initial full clone is expected, don't worry about --depth=1. I suspect anyone using a -git package should be accepting of the 900MB on-disk overhead compared to downloading ~25MB each build (or they'd just use the non-git package). Also, .

haawda commented on 2017-10-15 14:18 (UTC)

In a clean chroot it worked for me without -fPIC. Strange, a simple makepkg in a empty builddir needs -fPIC. But namcap in the clean chroot is not satisfied. chez-scheme-git E: APL is not a common license (it's not in /usr/share/licenses/common/) chez-scheme-git E: Symlink (usr/lib/csv9.5.1/ta6le/scheme-script.boot) points to non-existing /build/chez-scheme-git/pkg/chez-scheme-git/usr/lib/csv9.5.1/ta6le/scheme.boot chez-scheme-git E: Dependency ncurses detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/bin/petite'])

ecraven commented on 2017-10-14 05:38 (UTC)

jonathon, thanks for the PKGBUILD, updated based on it. I've removed the xlocale.h thing, as should have fixed this. The PKGBUILD still clones the entire repo once, should I modify it to only clone --depth=1? haawda, I just built it, but didn't need -fPIC, did you do a clean rebuild with up-to-date arch?

haawda commented on 2017-10-14 04:53 (UTC)

I had also to add CFLAGS+=" -fPIC" to make.

haawda commented on 2017-10-14 04:05 (UTC)

Jonathon, it is not only you.

jonathon commented on 2017-10-13 22:01 (UTC) (edited on 2017-10-13 22:15 (UTC) by jonathon)

You don't need to bump the pkgver for a -git package; the idea is that it should be generated from the upstream repo. This is also how e.g. AUR helpers know there is an update. Currently, with a set pkgver, helpers won't rebuild the package even if there are updates in the git repo. Please do consider the changes in my pasted PKGBUILD. Not only does this generate the pkgver as per, but it avoids the need to download the entire 900MB+ git repo every time a build is initiated. Finally, I still have issues building 9.5 due to a "missing" xlocale.h - or is it only me who's affected?

jonathon commented on 2017-09-20 15:26 (UTC) (edited on 2017-09-20 20:27 (UTC) by jonathon)

Fails to build due to glib=2.26 dropping xlocale.h. Also, this is a pretty suboptimal PKGBUILD as it's cloning the entire 900MB repo every. time. it. builds. Let me see if I can improve it a little... Here we go:

wysaard commented on 2016-05-14 11:31 (UTC)

Thanks for this, works perfectly!

ecraven commented on 2016-04-26 17:59 (UTC)

Thanks, added ncurses, libx11 and xproto to the build dependencies.

skrat commented on 2016-04-26 17:14 (UTC)

Doesn't the BUILDING file say it depends on ncurses and X11?
