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

mjakob422 commented on 2015-10-14 20:01

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...

Please read the PKGBUILD to use jasper instead of openjpeg.

graziano commented on 2013-05-31 08:20

changed dependency from openjpeg to jasper, will try to fix the openjpeg interface include search in the code.

julian.carpenter commented on 2013-05-14 23:07

when i tried to compile he gave me an error stating that openjpeg.h were missing although it was installed. i created an symbolic link to /usr/include because he was looking there which solved the problem (ln -s /usr/include/openjpeg-1.5/openjpeg.h /usr/include/openjpeg.h). Don't know if this is a problem with grib_api or with openjpeg...but i thought i share it in case someone stumbles about the same error.

grazinio's fix worked but you should add "--insecure" curl http option to DLAGENTS=... var inside /etc/makepkg.conf not on https

graziano commented on 2012-10-02 07:51

Only fix I have found is to put "--insecure" curl https option to DLAGENTS=... var inside /etc/makepkg.conf or add insecure to ~/curlrc. To my knowledge, this is as of now the way to go with self-signed server certificates. Anybody another solution?

I'm unable to download the source, with the following error:

curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate

please add python2-numpy and netcdf to makedepends.

Iconfirm that md5sum is: f1288627031c97fa1631fd5a63e3bbb3.
Please change the PKGBUILD file accordingly. Thankyou

ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!
ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build grib_api.

Please fix this

Md5sum needs to be changed. f1288627031c97fa1631fd5a63e3bbb3
It also seems to need netcdf and numpy installed before hand as well.

This package depends on linpng, so need recompile after libpng/libtiff update of 2012-02-05

graziano commented on 2011-04-02 15:59

They have changed the tarball, adding the libtool experimental tree... Changed the checksum accordingly. Thanks.
