Mmmm... lets start with "technicalities".
1) If user will ignore it, how will found about available "health" update?
2) You (package) have obviously several issues (not just one).
3) For me, it fails for "Makefile:331: recipe for target 'install-recursive' failed".
4) It can be installed if previous first will be removed.
5) Again, obvious that you have some problems in compilation in sense that you using in compiltion some libraries from same locations where are they located if package is installed.

Arch and AUR
1) First to be clear, this is not a critics. I want to try to explain to you all your "responsibilities".
So, primary thanks for maintaining it. However, you should to be aware about entire Linux (Arch) community, not just about your package.
Material fact is that building issue obviously indicate about the quality of the package itself (in all elements). Packages like this, gives the "material" (proves) for "experts" to "shit" on Arch like "unstable" distro, what clearly drop down users numbers and popularity. More "problematic" packages = less users. That is so obvious also for "blind" persons.
2) Second, what is the real purpose of the package existence on AUR what most users cannot install/update in any case???
3) What is the GIMP community benefits to have "problematic" packages???
4) Clearly low amount of comments, obviously shows that not to many people on Arch use GAP at all. So, do yu realy beleive that "problematic" update package will help to GAP to increase number of users???

Same problem as AndrzejL.
A successfull workaround for me was to remove gimp-gap 2.6.0-4 and then to install gimp-gap 2.6.0-5

For me doesn't work, even with setconf. I do believe that in my case it keeps including libmpeg3. Probably I need time to experiment various configurations in the PKGBUILD.

For komitaitrade, I think's simpler to configure the system to ignore gimp-gap, either with "--ignore" from the shell or inserting the option "IgnoreGroup" on pacman.conf, as usually AUR do often has broken/ experimental packages.
However, if someone else says it bothers, I'll remove it.

Well, I just double-checked my proposed PKGBUILD on a different computer to be sure that it still works for me, and it does (I mean, it doesn't build libmpeg3, but apart from that). Is it possible that there is an unidentified dependency that I just happen to have installed and you don't? One of the older PKGBUILDs I referred to when creating mine specifies "setconf" as a makedepend, which I do happen to have installed although I don't know why it would be needed; nevertheless, do you? Otherwise, I'm out of guesses.

Please remove the package until it will be fixed, as update notification bother.

ElMastro commented on 2016-01-26 17:06

I've tryed both of solution, but don't work. Inserting cmake doen't change anything to me, and I've tried the PKGBUILD made by frankspace, but it doen't compile (it stops with ffmpeg).

I've aslo made a PKGBUILD of my own, in ,
but It appears as I can't get ride of the problem with ffmpeg.

For what I think, it's still a problem of configuration, but I really don't know how to fix it, as on the files from the source of gimp-gap, it really doesn't say anithing about that.

frankspace commented on 2016-01-26 07:42

As far as I can figure, a lot of distros, and at least one prior PKGBUILD that I had lying around, simply disable libmpeg3. I cobbled together a PKGBUILD that worked for me based on various things I found:

This omits the need for cmake. I hope that helps.

angyath commented on 2016-01-26 02:48

Builds fine for me, but needs cmake as makedepend.

ElMastro commented on 2016-01-24 16:02

Ok, I think I must resign.
It appears that there's now a issue with the memory, similar to the one that's in

For now, the solution is to compile it twice, I'm asking in the AUR forum as this is REALLY know what to do.
You're welcome

frankspace commented on 2016-01-23 14:45

I have the same problem as AndrzejL. I would note additionally, in case it helps, that this occurs in the "src/gimp-gap-2.6.0/extern_libs" directory. Thank you for your efforts with this package.
