Those who can't compile emacs git master nor emacs 25 git branch, please try with the emacs-pretest package at <>.

Thank you.

The joys of using the bleeding edge. You get to break your toys and keep the pieces. :-)

The problem went away, I suspect with this commit:

So it was an upstream issue obviuosly.

No, I am doing it in a clean chroot using extra-x86_64-build. I am quite sure that my system is messed up in some ways, but isn't this what clean chroots are for?

Err. No. If you need to install texlive-plainextra to compile the texi source files into pdf means you are trying to do it by hand. NOT SUPPORTED, I'm afraid.

Let me explain. Every GNU package texi documentation is written with an especific texinfo.tex version as target and it is always included with the package sources. There is a reason why you use make to generate the documentation! It sets up the proper paths and files to obtain the formatted final documents as intended by upstream. I ran a full build last night in a fresh vm with a fresh chroot and I obtained perfect pdf files without adding texlive-plainextra to the makedepends array just to make sure.

The solution to bypass the PKGBUILD (I use it myself): Go into the src directory, run configure, enter the doc subdirectories and run "make pdf". Copy the pdf file somewhere safe and you are done.

If this is not the scenario, then you have bigger problems with how you have set up your system. I can't help you there. :-(

What I wanted to say in my previous post was: You have in line 56 of your PKGBUILD:

if [[ $DOCS_PDF = "YES" ]]; then makedepends+=('texlive-core'); fi

This should be

if [[ $DOCS_PDF = "YES" ]]; then makedepends+=('texlive-plainextra'); fi

This is the case independently of TeXLive 2016 or 2015, so you can do the change right now, no need to wait. texlive-plainextra has 1671,00 KiB, so it is a cheap addition.

Good for you! I don't use testing usually and I didn't know texlive 2016 was in the repo till I read today's messages to arch-dev-public. Thus, I presumed you were using the upstream binary distribution. Disregard my previous comments, please.

I'll make a note to update the emacs' git-based packages I maintain as soon as texlive 2016 enters stable.

My issue with elisp.pdf was solved for me by pulling in the makedependency texlive-plainextra, instead of texlive-core only, and building in clean chroots for [extra] or [testing], both tested. I guess it works because it pulls in the correct file texinfo.tex.

haawda commented on 2016-06-23 09:23

I now treiedin clean chroots for [testing] and [extra], and it is the same.

vorbote commented on 2016-06-23 01:02

I had to add an explicite

rm "$pkgdir"/usr/share/info/dir

Update your PKGBUILD checkout. It is apparently incompatible with pacman 5.0 hooks. It means it is several months old.

And make pdf seems not to work, at least with texlive 2016

That usually is a problem with how you set up TexLive's PATH. In particular if you also have installed Arch's TexLive version. Won't be able to test that myself with 2016 for a while, but my experience with previous versions of TeXLive and TeTeX has been so.

Otherwse I get a file conflict. And make pdf seems not to work, at least with texlive 2016
