@HalosGhost, thank you. Fixed.

Hey all, I just wanted to mention that it looks like python-docutils was made a runtime dep, but it should just be a makedep (it's only there to build the docs).

All the best,

I have no experience in maintaining Arch packages, but would like to try!

@huiser, after some back and forth on github, I managed to learn why it wasn't working here.

I updated the PKGBUILD so it works now with --enable-sessioncache.

Also, if you are using hitch, would you mind taking over the package? I'm not using it any more and I would like it to have a more active maintainer.

@habarnam I understand. Can you file an issue upstream?

habarnam commented on 2018-07-10 08:28 (UTC)

Done, thank you @alex.shpilkin.

The --enable-sessioncache is still failing for me @huiser so I haven't added it.

@habarnam Could you perhaps make this makedepend on python-docutils? This will then build manpages as well, using rst2man. (I also feel it is not completely kosher for a package build to depend on things not listed in makedepends.) Like so:

@huiser, for the moment the build fails.

  1. It requires an external repo inside the hitch/src folder which is not added by git submodule. That's not a very friendly to packaging.

  2. With --enable-sessioncache I get this:

Can you add the configure option '--enable-sessioncache' ? Session caching is a new option in 1.4.7 (

I did that command and it throw this error: package 'hitch-git' not found

Also tried to install this package using yaourt and it seems that the check() throws an error and after that it doesn't let install hitch. I removed the make check part and I could install but didn't find the hitch.service file.

Finally I could make everything work, the story is in

I did install on aarch64 architecture, you should add that to PKGBUILD and also the lsof to makedepends
