Managed to fix the apache-ant problem too, not using absolute paths but checking enviroment instead. New PKGBUILD uploaded.

khampf commented on 2012-04-17 13:08

Build-dependencies fixed (apache-ant and java-environment) and also call of ant using absolute path makes relogin unneeded. The right way to do this would be to check if ant isn't found and trying to load /etc/profile.d/ if that's the case but that'll have to wait for later, it should work for now.

In addition to the ant error (I had to install apache-ant, and relog),I had the following error:

/tmp/yaourt-tmp-****/aur-freeguide/src/freeguide-0.11/build.xml:67: Unable to find a javac compiler; is not on the classpath.
Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK.
It is currently set to "/opt/java/jre"

so I installed:

sudo pacman -S jdk

Probably obvious, but I still hope this helps someone.

After installing apache-ant you'd have to either relogin or exec ". /etc/profile.d/" in current shell to add necessary variables.

cemsbr commented on 2010-05-02 23:02

I didn't see the makedepends. PKGBUILD is ok.

cemsbr commented on 2010-05-02 22:55

apache-ant must be added to dependencies. Sputnick can use "pacman -S --asdeps apache-ant" while PKGBUILD is not updated.

td123 commented on 2010-05-02 22:54

I think this is a problem with your package manager because says that it belongs in the makedepends array.
Also, apache-ant is already in the makedepends.
I just tried compiling it, and the package builds fine.

sputnick commented on 2010-05-02 22:42

The build fails, you should probably add ant to make_depends array :
$ LC_ALL=C packer -S freeguide
