Builds fine here, but only after rebuilding and installing glib and gtk. Without so, I get the same error.

jpaechnatz commented on 2015-10-07 05:41

Does not build, I get multiple of these errors:

It looks like the source url on fossies changed. I had to use this one: http://fossies.org/unix/misc/old/ghost/ghostgum/${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz

aksr commented on 2012-08-30 07:17

@jpaechnatz:
Yes, you're right:
source=(http://fossies.org/unix/misc/ghost/ghostgum/${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz ${pkgname}.desktop)
@ConnorBehan:
I would put both urls. One commented, of course.

jpaechnatz commented on 2012-08-30 05:54

Working URL:
http://fossies.org/unix/misc/ghost/ghostgum/

@ConnorBehan:
Please change line 24:
from:
install -Dm644 "$srcdir"/$pkgname-$pkgver/srcunx/gsview.1 "$pkgdir"/usr/man/man1/gsview.1
to:
install -Dm644 "$srcdir"/$pkgname-$pkgver/srcunx/gsview.1 "$pkgdir"/usr/share/man/man1/gsview.1
Thank you.

They work for me. Please explain the specific error you're getting.

Anonymous comment on 2012-05-17 12:28

Flagged out of date since upstream sources do not work.

ConnorBehan commented on 2012-03-16 02:29

Gsview 5.0 is not for Linux yet.

ConnorBehan commented on 2011-07-15 02:09

Strange... I changed it to http anyway. If it helps one person, why not?

DRagon6621 commented on 2011-07-14 14:13

The FTP link still does not work for me. I tried for several days in two completely different systems (at home and at work). I do not have any proxy. Other FTP links work for me (e.g. I tried successfully more from http://www.archlinux.org/download/). When I click on the link in the browser it says "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to mirror.cs.wisc.edu" (opera and firefox similarly) but if I change ftp to http the browser downloads it successfully. Similarly I get the previously posted error message and could install the package just after changing the link. It is not a serious problem. I just posted it to help others if they have the same problem.

ConnorBehan commented on 2011-07-14 00:40

Are you sure it's not a proxy issue or random server outage? I just tried and it worked.

The following http link works (just had to replace ftp to http):

http://mirror.cs.wisc.edu/pub/mirrors/ghost/ghostgum/gsview-4.9.tar.gz

Works fine for me now, thanks a lot! :-)

ConnorBehan commented on 2011-03-17 15:46

Sorry guys, I have no idea how that happened.

haawda commented on 2011-03-17 11:39

fixed now, please re-adopt.

haawda commented on 2011-03-17 11:37

Confirmed. The uploaded file has a .gz extension, but it obviously is an ungzipped tar file.

steff commented on 2011-03-17 07:30

I get the error

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format

when trying to update. Any hints please?

haawda commented on 2011-03-07 05:28

windscape, for this reason there is an option: Put OPTION=('!makeflags') to the PKGBUILD.

Anonymous comment on 2011-03-07 00:09

Those of you that fail to build gsview need to comment out the MAKEFLAGS line in /etc/makepkg.conf temporarily, as gsview doesn't appear to support parallel jobs while compiling.
