Would you provide symlink to uutils-coreutils in Community instead of makedeps for rust?

dr460nf1r3 commented on 2021-07-23 14:43 (UTC)

I would suggest reporting this at the upstream git repo so it can be fixed :)

This package compiles fine with rust from the Arch repository.

The upgrade of ugrep from AUR stops with the following error: when this pkg is installed. Upgrade goes OK when the pkg is switched out for coreutils.

Can anyone confirm?


dr460nf1r3 commented on 2021-07-16 13:17 (UTC)

This looks a compiler issue indeed. You could verify by using Archs rust version to build the package.

I was wondering if the rust-nightly-bin could be the source of this error.

Invoking makepkg while skipping checksums (I'll try again in a while with the updated PKGBUILD) had the build stopping with the following.

Sorry, forgot to run updpksums. I didnt try rust-nightly-bin, guess trying would be the best thing to do here :) Btw, I'm not running into the issue with os-prober anymore so I guess that has been fixed in the meantime.

Hi, is rust-nightly-bin suitable for building this package?

Yes, I have os-prober installed.

makepkg stops with this error?

It seems the actual issue is the os-prober, not grub-mkconfig. @keren_sky do you also use os-prober?

bittnerd commented on 2021-04-23 16:29 (UTC)

For me grub-mkconfig works just as expected. Do you get any error messages?

dr460nf1r3 commented on 2021-04-23 09:04 (UTC)

Yes, I do get this as well. Im not sure which command causes to exit early though, do you?

keren_sky commented on 2021-04-21 15:21 (UTC)

Hi, does anyone see 'grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg' exiting prematurely with this package installed? I reverted to the vanilla coreutils and was able to update the list of kernels. Thanks.

dr460nf1r3 commented on 2021-04-03 14:55 (UTC)

Very nice, gonna do the changes later. Thanks for keeping track of this :)

bittnerd commented on 2021-04-03 13:29 (UTC)

With the new version cat is somehow broken for me (I've already reported this here).

But with 0.0.5 the bugs with tr, echo and wc are fixed. So this tools can be replaced by the Rust versions again.

dr460nf1r3 commented on 2021-03-27 17:19 (UTC)

yup, done :)

That1Calculator commented on 2021-03-27 00:45 (UTC)

RN wc is broken, can you revert wc back to GNU?

dr460nf1r3 commented on 2021-03-23 08:19 (UTC)

Thanks for the reports, echo has been replaced by the C version.

bittnerd commented on 2021-03-22 17:26 (UTC)

@keren_sky, I can confirm that. This command fails:

/usr/bin/echo '"\n'CXXFLAGS=-g -O2 -I/usr/include/libpng16 -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/SDL -D_GNU_SOURCE=1 -D_REENTRANT'\n"'

It is working with the C coreutils echo, but not with uutils. I've created an issue for this bug on github. But for now it seems good to use the C version.

keren_sky commented on 2021-03-22 15:09 (UTC)

Hi, fim package from AUR fails to compile when coreutils-hybrid is installed. I haven't got the time right now to try compiling in a clean chroot. IIRC the output said something about 'echo'. Hope this helps

dr460nf1r3 commented on 2021-03-14 20:57 (UTC)

Thanks for reporting this! Tr is now also substituted by the C version.

bittnerd commented on 2021-03-14 18:30 (UTC) (edited on 2021-03-14 18:36 (UTC) by bittnerd)

I found out, that tr is the problem. When using the C-coreutils version of it, it is possible to execute ./configure again in this package. Also configure zimg-git is possible again.

This issue seems to describe the problem with tr.

dr460nf1r3 commented on 2021-03-14 12:43 (UTC)

Alright, so realpath is substituted by its GNU counterpart.

bittnerd commented on 2021-03-13 13:33 (UTC) (edited on 2021-03-13 13:33 (UTC) by bittnerd)

I can confirm configure failure. Even this packages is not working. After installing this, the ./configure comand of the original coreutils is failing.

Additionally, I found out, that the realpath does not support all arguments. Executing genfstab -U / fails, because realpath does not support the -L nor the -m parameter.

I have seen configure failures (involving gawk) on a couple of aur packages when this version of coreutils is installed. zimg-git & vo-amrwbenc IIRC. Cheers.
