Fixed by completely re-syncing all source.

Errors still for me:

scurrvy2020: You are correct, it is an issue with the upstream source. The problem arises from a failure to properly fold in CFLAGS consistently.

I called in some help and we managed to work out what the problem was and generate a minimally invasive hack to work around it.

Breakage is tracked by

I'm getting this error... looks like it is probably in the source and not your packaging, however.

In file included from ../../../../grub-core/lib/gnulib/argp-fmtstream.c:26: ./wchar.h:708:1: error: unknown type name ‘mbstate_t’ _GL_FUNCDECL_RPL (mbrtowc, size_t, ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ../../../../grub-core/lib/gnulib/argp-fmtstream.c: In function ‘add_width’: ../../../../grub-core/lib/gnulib/argp-fmtstream.c:125:3: error: unknown type name ‘mbstate_t’ mbstate_t ps; ^~~~~~~~~ ../../../../grub-core/lib/gnulib/argp-fmtstream.c:155:11: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘wcwidth’; did you mean ‘mbswidth’?

For me, I'm hitting an error just using makepkg by itself.

BTW, building grub-git from pikaur or pacaur may fail with:

./bootstrap: done. Now you can run './configure'.

mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/var/build/grub-git/src/grub/build_i386-pc’: File exists

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Instead, with pacaur, first remove the build directory. With pikaur, first remove both the build dir and ~/.cache/pikaur/build/grub-git/ before running the build for a second time.

EndlessEden: According to the updated INSTALL file bootstrap calls so the PKGBUILD would simply need to replace the call to with a call to bootstrap.

Ranguvar: Even after making the relevant changes to the PKGBUILD the build fails with unknown type name errors. This seems like an error caused by the changes upstream.

EndlessEden commented on 2019-03-21 01:13

needs a bootstrap first, before autogen.

Not building for me as of

I'm using git branch pre-bootstrap f8f35acb after cd grub to get the commit right before it.
