The man page seems to get created anyway, but OK; added to clear that error. Thanks.

Hi jsteel,

I build facter in a clean arch nspawn (just with base-devel preinstalled). facter requests which is available in community/python-docutils. Could you add that as a makedepends?

complete build output:

@jsteel merge request filed

Well version 3 turned into cfacter, now facter (written in C not ruby) in [community].

@jsteel you know, I'm not sure actually. They are definitely the same package, but there is a 3.x branch of facter tagged on github, but not yet available on I think I may refactor this package to build the gem.

Should I merge this into facter2? Or is this any different?

@zjagannatha Please check your Ruby and Rubygems setup and make sure that something like rbenv or rvm doesn't interfere.

makepkg complains about a missing /usr/bin folder within the package root:

ERROR: While executing gem ... (Errno::ENOENT)
No such file or directory @ dir_s_mkdir - /home/xxx/Downloads/ruby-facter/pkg/ruby-facter/usr/bin
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

I modified the PKGBUILD to mkdir on "$pkgdir/usr/bin" before the gem install and it worked correctly:

package() {
cd "$srcdir"
# _gemdir is defined inside package() because if ruby[gems] is not installed on
# the system, makepkg will exit with an error when sourcing the PKGBUILD.
local _gemdir="$(ruby -rubygems -e'puts Gem.default_dir')"
mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/bin"

gem install --no-user-install --ignore-dependencies -i "$pkgdir$_gemdir" \
-n "$pkgdir/usr/bin" "$_gemname-$pkgver.gem"
