I no longer use this package, but prefer to use distrobox to work with deb packages. I am seeking a comaintainer for this and potentially some other Debian-related packages. Main qualification is to be an active user of the packages.

As far as I know, they're all in good, working condition, so there may not be much to do except bump versions.

dh_strip_nondeterminism is currently broken in the latest release. Needs following patch to work:

Thank you @xiota as following your suggestion of clearing the cache and retrying worked.

Clear the cache and retry. If it still does not build, try building in a clean chroot.

Any ideas how to fix this?

@natebragg Probably a configuration issue on your end. Using pamac-aur, built and installed fine with pamac build debhelper.

I am getting the following error when I try to install 13.11.4-2 with:

pamac install debhelper

The error is:

==> Starting build()...
po4a --previous -L UTF-8 man/po4a/po4a.cfg
make: po4a: No such file or directory
make: *** [Makefile:72: po4a-stamp] Error 127
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Aborting...

Installing worked fine when I ran:

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/debhelper.git && cd debhelper && makepkg -si

Upstream depends specifically on man-db. The command-line arguments of mandoc are different from man-db, causing at least one of the scripts to fail during runtime.

ImperatorStorm commented on 2023-05-04 03:47 (UTC)

Is there a reason to depend on man-dbspecifically, and not man? mandoc works fine for building this.

OK, thanks! ♥
