Another error now exists with the camlidl package on a fresh build system.

In this case, the package is no longer creating a required file called "META". This prevents camlidl from showing up as installed, and prevents the package from building.

If you run "ocamlfind list | grep -i 'camlidl'", you should see the camlidl packages listed.

If not, manually create the META file: /usr/lib/ocaml/camlidl/META

archive(byte) = "com.cma"
archive(native) = "com.cmxa"

Before you flag this package out-of-date:

While upgrading to the newer build, the same build error persists as reported in the comments.

When doing a fresh build, I manually created symlinks as root so that the build process finds them, as similarly suggested in the comments.

# ln -s /usr/lib/ocaml/com.cmxa /usr/lib/ocaml/camlidl/
# ln -s /usr/lib/ocaml/com.a /usr/lib/ocaml/camlidl/

After doing this, the directory '/usr/lib/ocaml/camlidl/' should have the following structure in a fresh environment:

$ ls -l /usr/lib/ocaml/camlidl/
total 4
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 Nov 17 02:23 com.a -> /usr/lib/ocaml/com.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Nov 17 02:23 com.cmxa -> /usr/lib/ocaml/com.cmxa
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 102 Nov 17 01:11 META

As suggested in the comments, this seems to be an issue with the camlidl package.

This should allow the package to build for now, until an automated PKGBUILD solution is found.

One more issue: the dependency ocamlnet does not build either. According to the AUR comment of 11/27/2017 it requires a downgrade of the the nettle package to 3.3.1

Updating the package after ocaml update requires recompiling all dependencies. Is there any way of stipulating that in the package instead of going manually reinstalling all the dependencies?

For the Error: External library "camlidl" not found., see my comment on camlidl.

Any clue?

@ginoboy - check the top pinned post. Also, that issue is unfortunately out of this maintainer's hands.

Thanks much @pricechrispy - honestly it was just confusing because the aur website made it obvious it knew what the alternative was (dune or *-git) however yaourt would just exit saying it couldn't find the resource. I expected the client to understand that jbuilder was renamed and to install accordingly.

pricechrispy commented on 2018-02-03 02:23

@olsonpm Yes, you are correct. I had been waiting patiently for this name switch to propagate to the AUR package. This is now merged.

@Mech2 Thanks for that tip. Hopefully the maintainer of the camlidl package will attempt to make these necessary changes.

olsonpm commented on 2018-02-02 22:31

I'm not very familiar with aur, but I think the 'jbuilder' makedepends line needs to be changed to 'dune' (to account for its renaming)

Mech2 commented on 2018-01-27 18:23

Another way to fix the META file not installed properly I reinstalled camlidl and changed:

install -Dm644 ${srcdir}/META.camlidl ${pkgdir}/${_ocamldir}/${pkgname}/META


install -Dm644 ${srcdir}/META.camlidl ${_ocamldir}/${pkgname}/META

in PKGBUILD. $pkgdir is already prepended to $_ocamldir so so theres no need for it in the install command.
