@theherk

had the same problem, worked for me after downloading global-6.5.5.tar.gz from gnu ftp (https://www.gnu.org/software/global/download.html). No idea if that was a good idea though -.-

Can't build.

makepkg

==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

updpkgsums (works)
tar -xvf global-6.5.5.tar.gz

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

@ptrv could you please change source download url to gnu home: ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/global/global-6.5.tar.gz

It's more secure and tamacom.com is block from china, and may confuse user a lot.

@dvzrv Thanks for pointing out to uncomment the vim plugin installation. Is fixed now. I added also emacs and vim as optional dependencies.

@ptrv: Thx for following up on my suggestion regarding moving in $pkgdir!
What about the vim plugins though? ;-)
Is there any reason to leave their move commented?
I've tried and tested this with current vim and it gets picked up flawlessly.

btw: You can add emacs and vim to optdepends for integrational purposes.

@ptrv: Can you also add the vim plugins at their system-wide destinations, please?
I suggest moving within $pkgdir though, as it is mostly the cleaner approach (will show up properly in pacman's listing of the package's files):

install -d "${pkgdir}/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp"
mv "${pkgdir}/usr/share/gtags/gtags.el" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/gtags.el"
install -d "${pkgdir}/usr/share/vim/vimfiles/plugin"
mv "${pkgdir}/usr/share/gtags/gtags.vim" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/vim/vimfiles/plugin/gtags.vim"
mv "${pkgdir}/usr/share/gtags/gtags-cscope.vim" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/vim/vimfiles/plugin/gtags-cscope.vim"

This way vim will pick them up automagically.

@lilydjgw Install file is removed.

lilydjwg commented on 2016-05-07 11:23

The install file is no longer needed as Pacman supports hooks now.

@blueyed Added global patch to use lid-idutils executable

blueyed commented on 2016-04-06 11:10

`lid` from idutils in Arch is installed as `idutils-lid` (https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=idutils#n30).

There does not appear to be a `--with-idutils(-lid)` option (should be proposed upstream probably?!) to specify the non-default location.
For now, global could be patched in Arch to use the `idutils-lid` program/location?
