An error occurred in the build() part in 1.19.0-1:

src/grib_api-1.19.0-Source/src/grib_jasper_encoding.c:113:10: error: ‘jas_image_t {aka struct <anonymous>}’ has no member named ‘inmem_’
image.inmem_ = 1;
make[2]: *** [src/CMakeFiles/grib_api.dir/build.make:4503: src/CMakeFiles/grib_api.dir/grib_jasper_encoding.c.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:1145: src/CMakeFiles/grib_api.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile:161: all] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build grib_api.

Any ideas?

if you have jasper v1.900.31 installed, just add `sed -i 's/image.inmem_.*=.*1;//' src/grib_jasper_encoding.c` before the `mkdir -p build` command in the build function of the PKGBUILD.

From the ECMWF Confluence (repository) page:

"Starting from version 2.0.0, ecCodes is the primary GRIB encoding/decoding package used at ECMWF. Nevertheless GRIB-API will be maintained and new releases made publicly available to support decoding of ECMWF model output. Replacing GRIB-API with ecCodes is expected to be transparent for current GRIB-API users. In particular the "grib_" functions are included in the ecCodes library. Users are strongly advised to start the migration process."

Apparently jasper compatibility is fixed in the ECC release. There is no Arch package for this yet, I don't have the time to organize a PKGBUILD, but here's a link for anyone that needs it:

dependency jasper was just updated, is anyone getting issues with compatibility?

A heads up, it seems like ECMWF changed to the Apache license:

Updated per @hotaru and @mjakob422 comments.

mjakob422 commented on 2015-07-23 10:21

I believe cmake should be a make dependency as well.

fails to build if libaec isn't installed.

An update of mesa-demos gave the following error:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
mesa-demos: /usr/bin/points exists in filesystem

pacman -Qo /usr/bin/points
/usr/bin/points is owned by grib_api 1.12.3-1

I am not sure if mesa-demos or grib_api is to blame but I would guess that this is a problem of grib_api...
