@john89 Your suspicion is correct. This is a common issue where something upstream was updated and all dependencies must be rebuilt against the new version. You can automate this with `pacman -Rs google-drive-ocamlfuse; yaourt -S --noconfirm google-drive-ocamlfuse`.

@nerflad: 0.3.6-2 works for me (i.e., builds, installs and allows mounting of my Google drive).

Thanks for the quick fix.

@ginoboy: The build should be working now, skipping the installation of the LICENSE and files fixed it. Thanks for the tip @snakeroot.

After a failed build, in 0.3.6 source directory in your build directory, edit the following file:


and delete the lines beginning with "doc:[" all the way to the bottom of the file.

then makepkg -e

Build currently fails with:

/usr/sbin/opam-installer: "mkdir" failed on /usr/doc: Permission denied ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting...

It seems like opam-installer tries to create a folder outside of the build context. Is there a opam-installer parameter missing to limit installation to package folder instead of system root?

@RX14: Please try rebuilding/reinstalling ocamlnet from the AUR and see if the build still fails.

on a fresh install, I failed at building and so installing gapi-ocaml.
I get the following issue :

File "src/gapi/gapiUtils.mli", line 1:
Error: Corrupted compiled interface
Command exited with code 2.
Compilation unsuccessful after building 2 targets (0 cached) in 00:00:00.
E: Failure("Command ''/usr/bin/ocamlbuild' src/gapi/gapi-ocaml.cma src/gapi/gapi-ocaml.cmxa src/gapi/gapi-ocaml.a src/gapi/gapi-ocaml.cmxs src/gdata/gdata.cma src/gdata/gdata.cmxa src/gdata/gdata.a src/gdata/gdata.cmxs -tag debug' terminated with error code 10")

any idea ?
