The problem is not the go version. I restored a go 1.5.3 package from my backups, installed it and tried building. Same error.

redfish queried the ipfs main author on irc and go 1.6.2 should work.

edtoml commented on 2016-05-03 00:27

Also getting

make[1]: warning: jobserver unavailable: using -j1. Add '+' to parent make rule.
make[1]: Entering directory '/tmp/makepkg/go-ipfs-git/src/go-ipfs/cmd/ipfs'
go install -ldflags="-X "".CurrentCommit=d597f4b"
go install: no install location for directory /tmp/makepkg/go-ipfs-git/src/go-ipfs/cmd/ipfs outside GOPATH

It used to work. Ideas anyone?

When building this package, I get this error:

go install -ldflags="-X "".CurrentCommit=fed6212"

PSA: New released version is not a reason to flag a -git package as out-of-date. If you install the -git package, its pkgver() function will automatically pull the version from Git. It should only get flagged out of date if it no longer builds or its dependencies have been outdated.

Can u add systemd service file from community/go-ipfs?

@Ape: The latest tag seems to work. Append #tag=0.4.0-rc2 to the .git in source()

I get this error when building this package:

go-ipfs must be built from within your $GOPATH directory.
expected '/tmp/go-ipfs-git20988/go-ipfs-git/src/src/' but got '/tmp/go-ipfs-git20988/go-ipfs-git/src/go-ipfs'

@Freso You might be interested as I just packaged build tools used by IPFS. See `gx` and `gx-go`.

Also there are 0.4.0 tags, see:

To use sources pulled by `makepkg` do what is done currently. Link them under go build infrastructure. If you don't feel great about handling go, I would be honoured to adopt this package.

0.4.0 release is a big steps for IPFS and the sooner AUR contains release candidate versions the better.
