18.10.1 had a buggy build process. I do not seee the need for any texlive package in 18.10.2.

18.10.2-2 fixes the errors brought up by swilde.

When installing 18.10.1, I first saw a build error about a TeX binary missing which I solved by installing texlive-core (merely installing texlive-bin wasn't sufficient.) Next, the build failed complaining that a "fullpage.sty" file was missing. This I solved by installing package texlive-latexextra. Do these two packages need to be added to the build dependencies? I didn't seem to need them when building earlier versions of ESS. Cheers...

EDIT: I can confirm that as you stated the TeX packages I mentioned are not necessary for an install of 18.10.2-2. Thanks very much for your attention.

Please use emacs-ess-git until upstream is able to provide working tarballs. Obviously they only package elc-files and also need el-files. Also ess-autoloads.el and ess-autoloads.elc is missing.

With 18.10.2 loading ess-site.el fails:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-missing "Cannot open load file" "No such file or directory" "ess-rd.el") require(essddr "ess-rd.el")

We should no longer need to put (require 'ess-site) in our init files as per the release notes. Currently I cannot get it to work: I try to use the (use-package ess :load-path "/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/ess" :defer t) config from the release notes, but it says Error (use-package): Cannot load ess (also when I put ess-site in stead of ess).

EDIT: looks like the package isn't installing any files right now (i.e. pacman -Ql emacs-ess doesn't show anything). During package() it says the following, but finishes fine none the less.

EDIT2: possibly because $pkgver is 18.10 in stead of 18.10-1 (which isn't allowed)?

I'm seeing that nothing is being installed in my case because all of the 'make' commands have a similar return during the call to 'package()':

cd lisp; make

make[1]: Entering directory '/path/to/cache/emacs-ess/src/ess-18.10/lisp'

make[1]: Nothing to be done for 'all'.

EDIT: This was specific to ess version 18.10 and is fixed in ess 18.10-1 (emacs-ess 18.10.1-1).

haawda commented on 2018-10-21 21:01

Should be fixed.

Having trouble installing the latest version. Getting the following message post installation: "install-info: No such file or directory for /usr/share/info/ess.info.gz error: command failed to execute correctly"

Attempting to build in a chroot reveals that the PKGBUILD is missing a makedepends=('wget'). With that line added, it builds.

Works for me.
