Yeah, it seems that the "make world" target is broken upstream. That seems to be some fallout from the recent switch to cmake. I haven't had the time to figure it out yet, as I'm busy with other things, sorry. Will look into it asap, but if anyone has a fix, please let me know. Other than that, I can only suggest sticking to David's stable version for now.

Hi, As reported by others, I am still locked with this AUR version too… It’s a shame, since it’s so useful, but I’m switching back to regular GRAME’s git repository and compiling by hand. Hoping for a soon fix however, All the best,

The compilation error is still not resolved. :(

Also, I now get this error:

==> Building and installing package
==> ERROR: optdepends contains invalid characters: '='
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build faust-git.

The culprit is 'java-environment=8' in optdepends. Replacing it with '>=' is also invalid, unfortunately.

Same problem here - only GCC is newer now. It seems to be related to make target "world". If I go into the downloaded build directory and issue a simple "make", compilation works just fine.

It’s been more than two weeks since my latest bug report and SpotlightKid comment. I’m still locked with the same error (latest Manjaro rolling release). Is everything OK ? If you need more information, feel free to ask for another report.

Same error here. I first thought this was due to using ccache, but I disabled it in /etc/makepkg.conf and then got the same error as helldrak ("/usr/bin/cc" is not able to compile a simple test program). I'm also on Manjaro.

Hi everyone,

Since the latest Manjaro rolling release I can’t compile faust-git anymore – makepkg -siC outputs the following parts :

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.10/Modules/CMakeDetermineSystem.cmake:186 (configure_file):
  configure_file Problem configuring file
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  CMakeLists.txt:2 (project)

  It fails with the following output:

I’ve checked the CMakeOutput.log and C/CXX compilers are all marked as succeeded and produced "a.out".

Any idea of what went wrong – any dependency broken on Faust side or is it my system (although all others AUR compiles well) ?

Thanks for your tremendous work and looking forward to Faust again ! All the best,

@dvzrv, the explanation there is rather terse. E.g., what does git config submodule.mysubmodule.url $srcdir/mysubmodule do, why is this needed?

If you know how to do this properly, can you send me a patch please?

dvzrv commented on 2018-01-24 10:06

@agraef: You need to properly reference the submodules of the main git repository [1].

I think I'll keep the 2 epoch, it's faust2 after all. :)
