@bartus Oh yeah. The file layout here is totally wrong now (thought I checked that). Thanks for pointing that out. I'll fix it when I have a free minute.

@Woodhousezb if your check function is failing with AssertionError: 25.499999999999996 != 17.0 within 1 places (8.499999999999996 difference) then I guess that's upstream's bug. You can move to some commit that does not have this or try to help them understand/fix it, or build with --nocheck if you want to ignore the check function failure. I made a bug report on it here:

@greyltc: would be nice to move out of /usr/local/freecad to e.g: /usr/lib/freecad/ ( check out Debian package file-list ) ( debian package cmake flags )

Hi there,

Kind of got the impression the problem got tackled, but I still get the same errors when trying to compile. @greylts: Is tis supposed to woork after your last comment?

greyltc commented on 2021-04-08 10:36

@bartus sorry about that. I didn't mean to leave that testing line active in my commit.

@greyltc: Sorry but this won't work 10fb2eb61467 if users has no github config (username/email) or if build inside chroot (also it breaks pkgver() )

Please switch to --no-commit flag.

Generally for me check() fails when there's an upstream bug and passes when there's not.

There still might be an issue with the current install somehow leaking into the check() environment when you rebuild the package, any help with addressing that is welcome.

I think if the check function always(?) prevents a successful package build, it should be commented out, until a solution is available. If everyone builds with "--nocheck" it's of no use anyway. Or are there people out there for which the package builds fine with the all the checks successful?

I think the TestImportCSG failure is an upstream bug. I've reported it here:

Running makepkg with --nocheck worked, however uninstalling freecad did not. ( I just pacman -R'd it, no reboots though. I'll just run with --nocheck for now. Thank you!

I suspect the check() function is not being sandboxed properly and so part of the existing install is leaking into check() when it runs here. If anyone has any ideas for fixing that I'd love to hear them.

@cculpepper1214 you might try uninstalling freecad, then building this again or you can build it with --nocheck to hopefully avoid the issue for now.
